    • Readiness indicators: inputs to the space economy

      Chapter 5 examines the readiness factors of the space economy, i.e. different elements that are necessary for the development of space activities. These elements encompass the technical, financial and social infrastructures that enable the production of space-related hardware or the provision of services. This chapter examines the following indicators: government budgets for space activities (both for public space programmes and for R&D activities) and human capital.

    • Intensity indicators: selected activities and outputs in the space economy

      The intensity indicators of the space economy are constituted by all the diverse outputs (products, services, science) that are produced or provided by the space sector. These outputs are very diverse in nature, from commercial revenues from industry, scientific productivity such as patents, to number of space missions or space launches. This chapter examines methodological issues specific to a few selected intensity indicators: space manufacturing, space-based applications, international trade in space products, and space-related patents.

    • Measuring socio-economic impacts from space activities

      This chapter reviews various types of socio-economic impacts derived from the development of space activities. The main message is that many space-based services have positive impacts on society, but issues concerning economic data definitions and methodologies have to be resolved to allow the benefits to be identified and quantified more precisely.
