Dublin, Nov. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Active Space Debris Removal Market - A Global Market and Regional Analysis: Focus on Space Debris Removal Techniques, Mode of Operation, Autonomy, Debris-Size, and Orbit - Analysis and Forecast, 2020-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The active space debris removal industry analysis projects the market to have significant growth of CAGR 27.66% based on the values during the forecast period from 2020 to 2030.

The North America region is expected to dominate the market by 2030 with a share of 61.43%. The North America region includes the U.S. and Canada, but the U.S. is expected to acquire a major share in 2030 due to the increase in the investment of companies in the country.

The active space debris removal market has gained huge importance in the past few years. This is due to the rising debris threat on space assets. Several government agencies and non-profit organizations and associations have started drafting policies and regulations to prevent companies from increasing the debris objects in the orbit.

Scope of the Global Active Space Debris Removal Market

The active space debris removal market research provides the market information for segmentation such as classification of the debris particles based on their size and the orbit, as well as the removal technique of contact and contactless methods. The market analysis examines the debris removal market outlook in terms of the trends, driving forces, opportunities, technological advancements, and competitive benchmarking, among others.

The report further takes into consideration the market and business dynamics, along with the detailed product contribution of the key players operating in the market.

Global Active Space Debris Removal Market Segmentation

The report constitutes an extensive study of the debris removal industry. The report largely focuses on providing market information for the debris removal covering various segments, products, applications, and regions.
