There is no doubt that the space industry is in the midst of change where innovation, risk-taking and large sums of investment funds have and continue to be poured in for various programs with new and unique value propositions. On the one hand, one can argue that Asia is a forerunner for this innovative drive. On the other, it has been touted that Asian ventures are in a bubble that could burst with dramatic negative consequences over the long term. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle and what is clear is that not all ventures will succeed but the strongest and most compelling companies will thrive and provide tremendous benefits and impact to the region. This session will drill down into market needs, market fit and key areas for success for making it in Asia’s New Space.

The space economy is expected to grow by many times over the next several decades. The majority of this growth is likely to come from industries and applications that either do not exist yet, or are in very nascent phases of development. Many companies old and new are working to build new applications that will allow for space to become more relevant to everyday people, potentially expanding the addressable market dramatically, while ushering in an era of “New Space”. Here, we will speak about the synergies that can be achieved between “New Space” and “Old Space”, including efforts by companies that have one foot in each market, as well as companies that are leveraging one to help grow the other.
