Space Market

Study 21-12-2021

This study provides an analysis of the European space market. The market size and structure of the European space industry is considered, alongside the dynamics of the new space economy. The contribution of the EU space programmes to fostering the uptake of space data, and the challenges and drivers of maximising synergies between the EU upstream and downstream space sectors are examined. The new Space-based Connectivity Initiative is also considered. In addition, recommendations by the Court of Auditors to strengthen the efficacy of the newly-integrated EU Space Programme, and to maximise their economic and societal impacts are considered.
