As per the BIS research analysis, the global space-qualified propellant tank market is expected to reach $3,069.5 million by 2031, with a CAGR of 4.83% during the forecast period 2021-2031. The rapid escalation of the production and launch of satellites is expected to be the major driving factor for the market. In addition, rising demand for building efficient propellant tanks at low cost are key drivers for the growth of the global space-qualified propellant tank market.
Propellant tanks are used in satellites and launch vehicles for storing liquid fuels. Additionally, a cryogenic rocket propellant tank (cryo-tank) is used for storing fuel or oxidizer of rocket stages. The upcoming space heavy lift launch vehicles demand extremely excessive propellant mass fractions to obtain the designed performance set by the existing metallic tanks. This is driving companies to develop lightweight propellant tanks.
Between 1957 and 2021, many governments and commercial organizations such as Infinite Composite Technologies, Ariane Space, Europe Space Agency (ESA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), started demonstrations for new propellant tank for different satellites and launch vehicles. Since then, the technology has evolved continually and transformed the entire space industry by developing unique products and systems.
Currently, many space agencies and commercial companies across the globe have been focusing on developing satellite constellations. This is expected to drive the market for the propellant tank system.
Market Segmentation of Space-qualified Propellant Tank Market
Space-qualified Propellant Tank Market by Platform
The satellite platform segment is estimated to dominate the global space-qualified propellant tank market due to the rising development of satellite constellations for communication, Earth observation, navigation, and tracking purposes.
Space-qualified Propellant Tank Market by End User
The commercial end user segment is estimated to dominate the global space-qualified propellant tank market due to the rising development of small satellite constellations for communication, remote sensing, Earth observation, and navigation by commercial industries.
Space-qualified Propellant Tank Market by Material
Carbon Fiber material is the most prominent material contributing to the global space-qualified propellant tank market. The space industry has been using carbon fiber composites for manufacturing satellite structures and launch vehicle structures. For instance, for NASA’s Artemis Program Space Launch System (SLS), a heavy launch vehicle, rocket parts were manufactured using the automated fiber placement (AFP) machine. These rocket parts comprised sandwich structures of more than eight meters in diameter made of carbon fiber skins with an aluminum honeycomb core.
Space-qualified Propellant Tank Market by Manufacturing Process
Space will continue to be a major source of applications for compression molded composite parts. Compression molding using BMC is an enabling technology for the fabrication of complex composite parts for aerostructures, space, and satellites.
Space-qualified Propellant Tank Market by Propellant Tank Type
With the growing number of space-qualified propellant tanks, it is anticipated that the requirement for diaphragm tanks will grow in the upcoming years. The tanks are light in weight, reliable, and manufactured at low cost, which has proliferated their use in the aerospace sector over the years. The tanks are replacing titanium propellant tanks that were previously used for spacecraft application due to low cost and simple design.
