Eurospace releases its annual Facts & Figures Report: The European Space Industry in 2021 [Jul/2022]
On 13 July 2022, the trade association of the European Space Industry, Eurospace, announced the release of the 26th edition of its annual report on the state of the European space manufacturing industry in 2021.
Eurospace has been publishing the results of its annual survey since 1996, covering almost 500 entities from the European space manufacturing and launch industry. The report allows chronological consistency and comprehensive series.
The 2022 edition shows the resilience of the European space manufacturing industry in 2021 following the constrained economic context of 2020 which was marked by the Covid-19 crisis. The report presents an increase of European upstream industry sales of €1 billion in 2021, showing strong signs of recovery from 2020.
On the European upstream employment side, the growth has been sustained in 2021, reaching a new record of 53,000 FTE (full-time equivalent).
The Press Release outlines a wide range of economic indicators notably related to the global context, the launch service markets, the captive and open markets and details the sales and employment figures for the European space upstream industry across its four main macro-segments: satellite applications systems, launcher systems, scientific systems and other (which includes the ground segment and support).
