"The launch market has tremendous opportunities with the advent of satellite constellations but is at risk of becoming a monopoly."


SpaceX’s near-monopoly of the satellite launch service market is the result of its improvement and the support it gets from the US government. In addition, competitors’ launch vehicles are still in development. New launch vehicles are expected but launch service providers will need to have a clear approach to demonstrating the value of their services if they are to gain a share of this competitive market.
