NSR’s “Emerging Space Markets Analysis, 2nd Edition (ESMA2)” report tracked more than $17.8 billion invested in Emerging Space companies from 2000-2018 for the more than 600 companies founded over that period. The last two years (2018 and 2017 combined) saw tremendous growth, with more than $7 billion-plus investment in Emerging Space companies.

A market pushing for commercialization of space, coupled with increased investor interest in a bigger and bolder vision of Emerging Space startups, makes the space market ripe for even more disruption. However, as the Emerging Space market presents opportunities, it is also highly competitive and sometimes a hard nut to crack given its CAPEX-intensive nature. With time, the market will grow even more dynamic and increasingly generate both winners and losers.

“An increasing number of startups are receiving venture capital and follow-on investments as they complete their promised milestones,” stated Sumanta Pal, NSR Senior Analyst and report author. “The investment community is funding diverse applications along the industry value chain, and traditional means of financing are increasingly available to Emerging Space players as well.”
