NSR’s Space Travel & Tourism (STT) Market Report, 5th Edition continues as the industry-leading analysis of this emerging global market. Covering the entire value chain, from suborbital, orbital, to travel beyond Earth, from rockets & rocket-planes, to balloons for suborbital, from investment and updates on space stations, to its 10-year forecast, this latest NSR report offers the most comprehensive analysis of this high-value commercial market.

NSR’s report on STT markets offers unique analysis of 3 different segments, for 2 different vehicle types, and provides both a status report and grounded analysis of each company’s progress operating in this space. The 10-year forecast includes the number of vehicles expected to be operating, either by commercial players or serving commercial customers, in each segment, the number of flights expected to take place, and the corresponding number of passengers to be served. In this high-demand market, supply remains constrained, and the technological and economical capability of the launch service providers remains key to understanding the pace and growth of this market; all of which is presented in this report. Critically, pricing dynamics for each sector, including differentiation between balloons and rockets/planes for suborbital, impacts of competition and space stations for orbital travel, and the development of Beyond Earth pricing, are forecast and presented. Finally, the revenue opportunity from flying commercial passengers or for commercial operators to each segment is presented.
