Excerpt
Purpose: Understanding the current size of the space industry, the likely future industry trends, and the effects of these trends is an enormous challenge to industry and to policy makers. The challenge in understanding the space industry stems from two factors. First, the space industry is broader than most people realize. It is not only composed of satellites and their launches, but now encompasses many direct-to-consumer applications, Internet services, and entertainment applications. Second, the industry is rapidly evolving from an industry dominated by civil government and military activities to an industry experiencing dramatic growth in commercial arenas. The unprecedented demand for commercial telecommunications services and new commercial applications are the primary driving forces of the space industry today.
