UK Space sector on the up!

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

The Space sector is one of the UK’s most innovative sectors, and following publication of the UK Space Agency’s latest survey – there have been significant movements since 2016.

The report showed that revenue for the sector had risen from £13.7bn to £14.8bn, with corresponding employment up from 38,522 to 41,900, and all-important export growth also up from £5.0bn to £5.5bn over the same 2 year period.

Closely allied to the UK aerospace sector which has also seen substantial expansion over the past decade, the UK is a recognised world leader in ground systems, satellite manufacturing, applications and technology.

Clearly there is concern over the impact of a no-deal Brexit on future growth and investment, but for now pressure continues to mount on the government to support this advanced engineering capability and high-value jobs that form such a key part of it.
