PANEL: Creating new economies in space

Investments and innovation have fueled the space industry in recent years, and this is just the beginning. The growth in the sector is driving the shifts in the space ecosystems and has made the sector more collaborative, allowing an agile way of developing the industry. The number of space launches has doubled in the last two decades, and the launch costs are set to drop further. The frequent launches, growth in funding, innovation, regulators working in lockstep with these new technologies, and the rising number of new entrants are some of the critical factors that are disrupting the new space economy. This session goes a step further and brings the broader stakeholders of the industry to discuss new technologies, innovations, and far-reaching views of creating an in-orbit economy that will accelerate the development of new capabilities leading to the sustainable development of the earth. It will highlight the new opportunities that lie ahead that can shift the boundaries of the space sector as more sectors get enabled by space, thereby leading to the economic development of space.
