This industry research report identifies Airbus, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Stratasys as the key vendors in the global 3D printing in low-cost satellite market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by the satellite part (antenna, framework, and power system) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global 3D printing in low-cost satellite market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global 3D printing in low-cost satellite market will grow steadily at an impressive CAGR of nearly 56% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the reduction in satellite manufacturing time as one of the primary growth factors for the 3D printing in low-cost satellite market. Unlike conventional manufacturing methods, 3D printing allows cost-efficient and precise engineering of satellite parts with rapid changes in the design of internal features in satellites. These advanced technologies will be adopted by several satellite manufacturing companies for the design and development of satellite systems. 3D printing also enables manufacturers to fully automate the development process of a satellite which considerably lowers satellite manufacturing time. For instance, Lockheed Martin implemented 3D printing in designing satellite parts and components and this helped the company gradually reduce the manufacturing and launch costs and significantly shorten the manufacturing time.

The utilization of new-generation and reusable launch vehicles will result in the successful and cost-effective makeover of satellite systems. The introduction of 3D printing enables satellite manufacturers to build rocket engines in shorter durations and will considerably reduce operational and launch costs. One of the leading companies, RocketLab has already developed an orbital launch vehicle named Electron rocket that will cut the cost and time to launch satellites into space. According to the company, the Electron rocket will lower launch costs by almost 95% and reduce the launch time of a satellite from years to weeks.
