Space investment landscape in 2021
As we enter 2021, Space investment has never been hotter. Be it private companies raising capital, or public companies newly minted via the SPAC (special purpose acquisition companies) machine, the sector continues to grow both its investor base, as well as the wallet share of those investors. All segments of the industry, be it launch or satellite hardware, remain healthy, though there are shifts in which segments are perceived to be where the lion’s share of future growth will be. Further, advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), edge computing and miniaturization allows for more sophisticated hardware to be put in orbit, yielding more insightful products and services.
