NSR’s Global Space Economy, 3rd Edition (GSE3) report provides readers an exclusive market view of the entire space economy. After years of unbridled growth, the Satellite and Space markets are seeing and feeling the market slowdown felt across the globe – or are they?

NSR’s provides unparalleled insights on first-order revenues from the launching, manufacturing, and sale of space-based services. GSE3 focuses on the revenue outlook over the period of 10 years, split into three segmentations: Infrastructure, Applications, and Communications.

NSR’s GSE3 answers these key questions:
  • Where are the major opportunities in the space economy?
  • When will infrastructure investments transition to service-based revenues?
  • Are current macroeconomic headwinds challenging the long-term growth picture?
  • Will Non-GEO displace GEO as a key orbit for value creation?
  • What is the opportunity for direct-to-device services?

Who Should Purchase this Report:

  • Venture Capital Analysts/Managers
  • Business Strategy Mangers
  • SATCOM Service Providers
  • National Space Agencies (Business Incubation)
  • Launch Providers
  • Government and Military Organizations
