SpaceX Wins $2.9 Billion Contract To Develop Moon Lander For NASA, Drawing Attention In The Rocket Engines Market

The Business Research Company’s Rocket Engines Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030

American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company SpaceX was selected by NASA to design and build a spacecraft that will carry astronauts to the moon. SpaceX’s human landing system (HLS) called Starship will be used as a part of NASA’s Artemis program during the planned 2024 mission to carry crew, supplies and equipment to the moon’s surface. The Artemis program aims to have at least one female astronaut who will become the first woman to land on the moon, as well as a person of color – another historical first – to land on the moon. 

The $2.9 billion contract offered by NASA marks a major victory for SpaceX in the rocket engines market, which, according to The Business Research Company’s recent report, is expected to witness a healthy growth in the coming years. Starship uses Raptor engines and has inherited features from SpaceX’s Falcon and Dragon spacecrafts. SpaceX continues to be a dominant player in the launch market and has been largely successful in lowering costs and increasing the number of flights while also maintaining safety.

3D printing technology is a key trend gaining popularity in the rocket engine market. Space organizations and private companies are designing 3D printed rocket engines to reduce costs and speed up production. For instance, in September 2020, NASA’s Rapid Analysis and Manufacturing Propulsion Technology (RAMPT) project is developing the production of an additive manufacturing methodology utilizing metal powder and lasers to 3D print rocket engine components. This technology is expected to reduce the cost of manufacturing complex combustion parts and also reduce the lead time of production. In February 2020, Skyrora, a US-based rocket start-up company, had successfully tested its 3D-printed rocket engines.
