[189 Pages Report] The Space Lander & Rover Market size was estimated at USD 1.12 billion in 2023 and expected to reach USD 1.17 billion in 2024, at a CAGR 4.41% to reach USD 1.52 billion by 2030.

A space-lander is a spacecraft engineered to descend and come to rest on the surface of an astronomical body. A space rover, on the other hand, is a mobile lander generally designed to traverse the surface of a planet or moon. They are designed to touch down, operate on, or analyze the surfaces of other celestial bodies, such as planets, moons, asteroids, and comets. Substantial investment by governments in space exploration missions has accelerated the demand for space landers & rovers. International cooperative missions and public-private partnerships enhance resource pooling and deployment of different landers & rovers. However, the harsh and varied environments of space present significant design, landing, and operational challenges for these spacecraft. Thus, market players are working on developing more efficient, powerful, and potentially reusable propulsion technologies to address these concerns. They are also developing new materials that can withstand the extreme conditions of space travel and surface operations. Moreover, AI and machine learning technologies are enabling advanced autonomous operations of rovers and landers. Stakeholders in the market are also creating standards and technologies that prevent biological contamination of landers and rovers that target celestial bodies and Earth.

Regional Insights

In the Americas, particularly in the United States, space landers and rovers are primarily used for scientific exploration by government entities such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The production landscape for space landers and rovers in the Americas is dominated by a mix of historic aerospace companies and newer private firms. In the APAC region, countries such as China and India have ramped up their lunar and Mars exploration efforts, both deploying their own rovers to the Moon and Mars. APAC region’s space vehicle production is led by agencies such as the China National Space Administration (CNSA) and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), which both manage and control the production of their space exploration vehicles. Startups are also emerging across South Korea, Australia, and other countries to accelerate the development of advanced landers & rovers. The EMEA region, specifically through the European Space Agency (ESA) and its member states, has participated in collaborations such as the ExoMars program that intends to dispatch a rover to Mars to search for signs of life. The space exploration sector in EMEA is marked by a unique mix of intergovernmental cooperation and commercial competition, resulting in an environment where established companies serve their national interests and contribute to pan-European and international projects.
