Worldwide Carrier Rocket Industry to 2030 - Escalating Demand for Reusable Rockets Presents Opportunities -

October 11, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 11, 2021--

The “Carrier Rocket Market by Payload Type, Payload Carrying Capacity, Range and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2030” report has been added to’s offering.

A carrier rocket is a rocket-propelled vehicle used to carry a payload from Earth’s surface to space, usually to Earth orbit or beyond. A launch system includes the launch vehicle, launch pad, vehicle assembly and fueling systems, range safety, and other related infrastructure. Launchpad are utilized to launch the carrier rocket which can be located on land, on a fixed ocean platform, on a mobile ocean platform, and on a submarine. Launch vehicles can also be launched from the air.


The carrier rocket is loaded up with payload and begins its journey from a location on Earth. The rocket must move vertically to exit the atmosphere and horizontally to avoid re-entering the atmosphere in order to reach orbit. The requisite velocity varies depending on the orbit, but it is usually quite high when compared to conventional velocities. Various performance levels are provided by launch vehicles. For instance, a satellite destined for Geostationary Orbit (GEO) can be launched straight into Geostationary Orbit (GEO) or to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO).

The carrier rocket market is segmented into payload type, payload carrying capacity, range and end-user. By payload type, the carrier rocket market has been segmented into cargo, satellite, and others. By payload carrying capacity, the carrier rocket market has been segmented into less than 4 tons, 4 tons to 8 tons, and above 8 tons. By range, the carrier rocket market has been segmented into LEO, MEO, GEO, and others. By end user, the carrier rocket market has been categorized into government, and commercial. Region-wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
