The space sector plays an increasingly pivotal role in the functioning of modern societies and their economic development as the use of satellite technology gives rise to new applications, uses and markets. Space Economy at a Glance offers a statistical overview of the global space sector and its contributions to economic activity using data from over 40 countries with space programmes, and identifies new dynamics in the space sector.



Human spaceflight activities

More countries than ever are investing in indigenous human spaceflight capabilities, usually in collaboration, by providing scientific experiments and equipment to larger missions through a variety of means: sounding rockets, suborbital flights, and of course orbital spaceflight missions (currently only available via flights to the International Space Station (ISS) or the Chinese Tiangong-1 test-bed space station).
