New Report Finds Space Entrepreneurs Ready to Make Their Mark

Emerging Space Market Opportunity Supported By A $10 Billion Investment

A new report from Northern Sky Research titled "The Emerging Space Market Opportunity" finds that nearly 400 emerging space companies have been founded since 2000, all seeking to deliver new applications or pursue new approaches to operating in space. Supported by $10 billion in investment, these start-ups set the stage for an increase in the number and diversity of satellite services, new launch solutions and manufacturing practices, as well as innovative ways of operating in space that provide both near- and long-term revenue opportunities.

“Emerging Space is a budding ecosystem, with companies emerging across an entire value chain to tap into growing demand and enable the success of the market as a whole,” noted Carolyn Belle, NSR Senior Analyst and report author. NSR found the rate of company establishment has increased exponentially since 2000, with new players like dedicated small satellite launch providers and downlink services forming to fill unmet demand. The investment community has taken an interest in players across all segments.

The Emerging Space Market Opportunity study identified strategic investors, wealthy entrepreneurs, and venture capital as the leading players in investment volume, while angel investors support the greatest number of deals. “35% of emerging space companies have secured outside investment, trading equity for growth capital as well as access to expertise and key partnerships,” added Belle. This share will increase moving forward, as business plans and R&D mature and with many investors increasingly bullish on the market.

A young market poised for growth and positioned to impact the entire space industry, Emerging Space will also be subject to failures and intensifying merger & acquisition activity in the coming years. The many companies still in R&D or early operational stages must commercialize their products, or risk losing valuable first and second mover advantage as new markets are established.
