Abstract

This paper aims to assess the socio-economic impacts of space investments. It briefly propses the benefits derived from space programs. Also, it emphasizes the impact of the ever-growing trend of space technology trasfer, space commercialization, and the role of space startups in macroeconomic level. Reviewing the Literature and industry statistics implies the constant increasing trend of space industry development and broader application areas. In this respect, job creation and revenues has been increased in recent years. On the other hand, national and international macroecomic atmosphere have had considerable effects (directly and indirectly) on investments, production and turnover of space industry as a whole. By and large, market trends in recent years have opened new windows to new opportunities and consequently, we will see more effects of space industry on national and international economy.
