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.
