We are delighted to share this report, produced by PwC in association with the UK Space Agency. It seeks to help private capital investors better understand the space investment landscape, and the key dynamics and trends underpinning it. It also highlights the diversity of investment opportunities across the sector and the UK’s prominent position as a destination of global space capital.
The insights have been developed through our shared experience in the sector, extensive stakeholder engagement and desktop research, with evidence sources presented where possible.
Think ‘space industry’, and you might be forgiven for thinking of astronauts, rocket launches and the tourism ventures of billionaires. It is less recognised for its significant role as the ‘hidden utility’ underpinning our daily lives and economy, supporting an estimated £370bn of UK GDP every year.
