Leading countries in the space sector have announced their moon landing plans in 2020, which marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Some of them have even formed a space force to protect national security, which in turn has benefited their aerospace and national defense industries. US and European companies have been deploying massive low earth orbit satellite systems at an unprecedented speed, resulting in the explosive growth of the space industry. The Taiwanese government has also outlined six core strategic industries for 2020 with the aim to drive greater integration of military and civilian technologies and improve manufacturing capabilities in the private sector, thereby gaining a foothold in the global aviation and space industries. This report analyzes business opportunities in the space industry and its industrial development.

List of Topics

  • Development of the space industry, touching on the development of low-, medium-, and high-earth orbit satellite, especially low earth orbit satellite systems.
  • Development highlights of the space industry, touching on challenges arising from design and manufacturing, key players in the global and Taiwan's upstream, midstream, and downstream space industry supply chains, as well as Taiwan's network communications upstream, midstream, and downstream industry supply chains.

Primary research with a holistic, cross-domain approach

The exhaustive primary research methods are central to the value that the analyst delivers. A combination of questionnaires and on-site visits to the major manufacturers provides a first view of the latest data and trends. Information is subsequently validated by interviews with the manufacturers' suppliers and customers, covering a holistic industry value chain. This process is backed up by a cross-domain team-based approach, creating an interlaced network across numerous interrelated components and system-level devices to ensure statistical integrity and provide in-depth insight.

Complementing primary research is a running database and secondary research of industry and market information. Dedicated research into the macro-environmental trends shaping the ICT industry also allows the analyst to forecast future development trends and generate foresight perspectives. With more than 20 years of experience and endeavors in research, the methods and methodologies include:


  • Component supplier interviews
  • System supplier interviews
  • User interviews
  • Channel interviews
  • IPO interviews
  • Focus groups
  • Consumer surveys
  • Production databases
  • Financial data
  • Custom databases


  • Technology forecasting and assessment
  • Product assessment and selection
  • Product life cycles
  • Added value analysis
  • Market trends
  • Scenario analysis
  • Competitor analysis
