The space and satellite industries hold great growth potential, according to the World Economic Forum. Their data suggests revenues will balloon to $1.8 trillion by 2035, up from $630 billion in 2023.

Space and satellite technologies are increasingly affecting all aspects of life. From the weather forecast on your smartwatch to the route your car plots to your destination, it all depends on these innovations.

If your organisation has developed or is working on cutting edge technologies, they might be applicable to the following areas ripe with opportunity:

Supply Chain & Transportation

Accurate positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) offers opportunities to better track and manage vehicle movements for reduces costs and improves efficiencies. Innovators may also find ways to integrate Earth Observation technologies with the IoT for more informed decisions. New weather technologies could also lead to improved safety of personnel and goods.

Digital Communications

Personal and business adoption of satellite communications will drive growth significantly over the coming decade. Satellite constellations will also to improve connectivity and reach, opening up new markets.

However, the industry will become much more competitive, necessitating cross-industry collaborations. Radio frequencies may also become congested due to increased demand, requiring cutting edge solutions.


State intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance needs will spur innovation. Battlefield communications will also merge with other communication platforms for seamless data flow. AI analytics and sensors will also play a greater role in space sensing.

Public Well-Being

Satellite communication and connectivity in space will increasingly lead to a better, safer world. New technologies could alert regions to potential disasters, track weather events more effectively, and help sovereign entities identify clean water sources and needed commodities.

Food & Beverage

New space positioning technologies could improve the delivery of perishable goods. Innovative companies may also contribute to the growing list of zero-gravity ingredients used in space.

Retail, Consumer Goods & Lifestyle

Better satellite connectivity across much of the planet opens up countless opportunities in e-commerce and online shopping that never existed before. Companies may also supply needed PNT receivers as satellite usage grows.

Space Tourism

SpaceX and Blue Origin have shown that space travel for humans isn’t something that will only ever exist in science fiction. It’s quickly becoming a thriving business and it needs innovators to overcome challenges.

Currently, it costs hundreds of thousands for a suborbital flights. Should a passenger want to reach space, that jumps to tens of millions of dollars. Yet, even simple innovations could cut costs, simplify processes, and improve efficiencies.


One of the most lucrative aspects of business in space is finding ways to establish sustainable space practices. Space debris is already an issue, so opportunities abound. Companies want ideas so they can expand satellite life and recover existing debris.

Space Cybersecurity

Interconnectivity in space increases the risk of cyberattacks that could disrupt critical space infrastructure. Innovators could find ways to ramp up protections in space to mitigate risks.


The unique environment of space also offers new opportunities for innovators in the manufacturing industry. Tweaks of existing processes or new methods could help companies manage what isn’t possible on Earth.

Tapping into the Space & Satellite Industries

Despite challenges, opportunities exist for entrenched players to capitalize on. A greater demand for high-speed internet and global connectivity and data delivery to new and existing sectors provide amazing potential.
