Key Market Trends

EVA Suits Segment Accounted for a Major Market Share in 2019

The EVA suits segment currently dominates the market and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. The extravehicular activities (EVA) are generally the spacewalks taken by the astronauts for activities like planetary exploration, repairing of the satellites, and other extremal activities on the space station. The EVA suits (Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) suits) provide environmental protection, communications, mobility, and life support for astronauts. The development of new spacesuits for human space exploration programs is anticipated to propel the growth of the segment in the coming years. In October 2019, NASA unveiled xEMU spacesuit for extra-vehicular activities on the surface of the moon for the space mission planned in 2024. Furthermore, NASA plans to make modifications and upgrade the suits in the future for extra-vehicular activities on the surface of Mars.

Asia-Pacific is Expected register the Highest Growth Rate During the Forecast Period

The Asia-Pacific region of the market is anticipated to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The Asia-Pacific countries like China, Japan, and India among others are forging ahead with their human space exploration plans to send humans for planetary exploration in the coming years. China under its human space exploration program planned to construct and operate a space station in low earth orbit (LEO). The country plans to complete the construction of the space station by 2024. Furthermore, the China National Space Administration also announced to carry out human exploration to the moon by the 2030s. Also, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) announced to send four astronauts for its human mission planned to be launched in 2022. For this launch, ISRO developed a new spacesuit (prototype unveiled in September 2018) for the astronauts, with one oxygen cylinder carrying capacity. Such space exploration programs are anticipated to generate demand for IVA suits and EVA suits in the coming years.
