The all-electric satellite market is projected to be valued at more than US$ 18 billion, and is poised to grow at a staggering CAGR of over 11% during the forecast period. As existing operators are preferring all-electric propulsion mechanisms, the satellite industry is witnessing a steady uptake of all-electric satellites. All-electric satellites are a new category of satellites providing extended mission time along with improved efficiency.
They often weigh lesser than the traditional satellites. This leads to decreased satellite operator launch costs. The market is expected to witness many operators who show a pronounced shift towards all-electric satellite solutions as part of their future and current missions, with the possibility of low-weight satellites capturing their interest.

Key Takeaways of All-Electric Satellite Market Study
- More than 30% of all the all-electric satellites launched in 2018 were for commercial communication purposes
- Though civil operators are increasingly adopting all-electric satellites, military surveillance operators remain slow to embrace
- Earth observation and remote sensing applications will grow at the highest CAGR of over 12% as operators are beginning to diversify targeting applications
- North America holds the largest share (~35%) within the global all-electric satellite market. The presence of prominent space organizations such as National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is attributing to such growth
- APAC is anticipated to showcase the highest growth rates (over 14%) especially in nations such as China and India, due to the growing downstream applications which are facilitating growth
Technological Improvements to Remain Key Market Imperative
The global all-electric satellite market is consolidated in nature with a few industry giants such as Airbus SE, The Boeing Company and Ariane Group acquiring the top shares.
All-electric satellites are expected to perform exceptionally well with respect to being economic. Over time, more businesses will be selling this type of technology. Some of the key developments in the all-electric satellite market are:
- In March 2020, Boeing SA and Lockheed Martin were chosen under the U.S., Protected Tactical Satcom (PTS) program to develop jam-resistant communications devices. Boeing and Lockheed Martin each won contracts worth US$ 191 million and US$ 240 million respectively. These two companies will be joining Northrop Grumman as the three largest contractors for designing.
- In August 2018, Eutelsat aimed to replace its most valuable set of broadcast satellites with two larger all-electric satellites from Airbus.

Product Enhancement to Foster Market Resiliency
Boeing SA was the first contributor towards the all-electric satellites industry in 2012 with a four-satellite watershed contract. In the aftermath of that contract, space agencies and other companies around the world have increased their investments in electric propulsion for use in research missions that go mainstream in the commercial sector.
Manufacturers of all-electric satellites are now trying to find novel ways of increasing their market share for electric propulsion while not ignoring traditionally inclined customers.
However, he allure of economies of scale and less reliance on external suppliers makes vertical integration difficult in the all-electric satellite market. Presently, vertical integration is an expensive business practice, with major associated risks.
