The space and satellite communications sector is complex, diverse and heavily influenced by technological change, regulation, and both government and private-sector investment decisions. Profit margins vary widely across the industry, as do capital requirements, barriers to entry, and the influence of government and private stakeholders. Crafting a strategy and securing defensible market position is challenging for any space company, and these challenges grow every year.
Commercial suppliers must make critical long-term technology, capital expenditure and R&D decisions, even as customer needs shift and the nature of competition changes. Governments worldwide wrestle with the appropriate balance between innovative commercial solutions and more traditional in-house procurements, and suppliers must decide when and how to add new capabilities, make investments, and position along the changing value chain. The decisions are difficult and the stakes are high.
