Introduction

The Chinese space industry has seen rapid growth over the past 10 years in terms of both scale and technological prowess, and this will likely continue into the next decade. Having built out a formidable infrastructure of satnav, EO, and comms satellites, China has created a clear strategy for internationalizing this infrastructure and bringing it to international markets, while at the same time accelerating innovation at home via partial commercialization of the space sector. With more than 100 commercial companies having been founded since 2014, it is expected that an increasing number of sub-verticals in the Chinese space industry to be opened to private investment and commercial companies.

Euroconsult estimates China’s satellite manufacturing industry to have accounted for nearly $5B in 2019, with the past few years seeing a diversification of manufacturing sources, with a small but increasing percentage of China’s satellite manufacturing industry deriving from commercial companies focused on mass manufacturing and novel technologies.
