The past few years have seen the sector draw ever higher on the business agenda, as investment and M&A activity reach record levels. In 2016, investors devoted an estimated $2.3bn to space tech start-ups and this number is only set to rise further. 

With this fresh in mind, Graham Carberry and Daniel Domberger spoke with Business Review USA on the reasons why investors are queueing up to get involved. In particular, they look at the growing ecosystem surrounding the sector, the value of data and what the future market may hold for investors.
