Cryocoolers find extensive applications in various end-use industries such as defense, healthcare, energy, and space. They are highly preferred for cooling infrared sensors and superconducting devices that require ultra-low temperatures. Cryogenic systems find widespread usage in space applications for cooling infrared sensors, superconducting wires, and superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs). They are also used in space telescopes and satellites for cooling infrared focal plane arrays and astrophysical instruments. Owing to the growing space exploration projects worldwide, there has been a substantial rise in the demand for cryocoolers in the space sector. The increasing investments by various countries in satellite launch programs and space science missions foster the growth of the cryocooler market.
The global Cryocooler Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2540.58 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 34.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key Trends:
Demand for cryocoolers is driven by rising investments in space applications. Space agencies across the globe are exponentially increasing their spending on space programs. For instance, NASA’s budget allocation for 2020 was $22.6 billion, while European Space Agency’s budget for the same year was $6.48 billion. Similarly, Indian Space Research Organization’s budget allocation stood at $1.78 billion for 2020-2021. This rising expenditure in the space sector is fueling the development of new generation satellites, space telescopes, and other space exploration missions. Since cryocoolers play a crucial role in cooling various payloads and instruments installed in satellites and space vehicles, their demand is witnessing significant growth. The growing space economy will continue to push the development of advanced cryocoolers with high reliability and effectiveness over the forecast period.
