The global demand for Asteroid Mining Market is presumed to reach the valuation of nearly USD XX MN by 2026 from USD XX MN in 2019 with a CAGR of XX% under the study period of 2020 - 2026.
Asteroid mining, also called space rock mining, is the exploitation of crude materials from asteroids and other minor planets. Minerals, including gold, iridium, silver, platinum, nickel, osmium, palladium, and aluminum, can be mined from an asteroid or spent comet. It requires extraordinary equipment to deal with the extraction and processing of mineral in space. Necessarily, there are three different ways of mining space rock: first, carry crude asteroidal material to Earth for crude material investigation, second, process it on location to bring back just prepared materials, and maybe produce charge for the arrival trip, third, transport the space rock to a sheltered circle around the Moon or Earth or the ISS. These three different ways will speculatively spare the cost and take into account most materials to be utilized and not squandered.
Depleting mineral resources, together with a growing global population, is estimated to drive the worldwide asteroid mining market. Earth’s population is forecasted to grow up to 11.2 billion by the end of the century, the supply of natural resources now mined is not big enough to meet our growing demands. Hence, there has an increasing shift towards asteroids mining. Governments and private enterprises have set their sights in outer space for various resources, which is projected to fuel the growth of the market. Companies are actively investing in space mining to provide and enhance practical theories and technology for business evolvement. Factors like the high expense of space mining processes and regulations regarding proprietary rights hamper the growth of asteroid mining. However, these obstacles are soon going to fade away. Costs of traveling to space will soon be negligible, very soon asteroids will become easy to reach as any mine on Earth.
