Space Sector

Space is no longer the final frontier. It’s an active arena where commercial companies and public sector organizations are gaining competitive advantage. BCG’s space sector consulting experts help clients enter and win the race.

The commercial space sector represents a tremendous opportunity for a diverse range of public and private sector organizations. Governments are looking to spur growth in space, and organizations such as NASA and the European Space Agency are leading the way in the commercialization of space. Incumbent space industry companies are taking advantage of new technologies that will give them a competitive edge here on Earth, while other businesses are seeking to leverage the benefits of space-based technologies. Meanwhile, there’s a new breed of companies built around satellites, spaceports, and orbit infrastructure. BCG is uniquely positioned to help clients across industries achieve their commercial space goals and explore new possibilities that may have once seemed impossible.
