The global space industry value chain has been expanding with new entrants and interests of non-space stakeholders contributing toward the development of solutions in the downstream segment.In the upstream segment, LEO-based constellations are driving the demand.

This demand is being supported by developments such as additive manufacturing and serial production of satellites.Constellation operators such as OneWeb and Spire Global have their own manufacturing facilities, indicating vertical integration across the satellite value chain.

A similar trend is observed in the case of launch service providers that are developing their launch vehicles in-house and building serial production facilities to feed into the demand and allow increase in launch frequency for single-manifest launches.In the downstream segment there are many new entrants providing solutions for niche markets.

AI and deep learning have enabled software solutions that do not require the end user to be equipped with knowledge to interpret data, but provide relevant results for decision making based on their requirements. In the case of connectivity solutions, many LEO constellations are being announced to reduce latency and target remote areas. Amazon has entered the market to provide end-to-end solutions. This increased capacity is an opportunity for downstream service providers and an increase in number of downstream communication service provider is likely, especially in Africa and South Asia.The analyst has identified 29 roles across the space ecosystem.
