Street Insider: NSR Report: Space Investments in 2020 Hit $7.7B in Record Year
NSR’s Emerging Space Investment Analysis, 3rd Edition report (ESIA3) released today, shows $7.7 billion in funding was raised in 2020 alone, bringing the total since 2000 to nearly $36 B. “2020 was definitely a record year for space investment, with M&As, exits, and new rounds closing as we witnessed more enthusiasm and optimism in the prospect for the Space market,” states Shivaprakash Muruganandham, NSR Senior Analyst and report lead author.
“With excess capital on the market, and timeclocks on SPACs ticking down, NSR expects more space companies to go public in 2021,” explains Arthur Van Eeckhout, NSR Analyst and report co-author. “It will be very interesting to see how things pan out in the future, but right now, Space is a hot market for investors.”
