Market Dynamics

Driver: Ongoing and impending space mining missions

Space mining has been a research area in recent years. However, various governments and commercial organisations are concentrating on space mining, both asteroids and the moon. Examples include the Moon Express in the United States and space exploration in Europe and Japan. Both NASA and the Japanese space agency, JAXA, have a recent mission in which they must return samples from carbonaceous asteroids. In addition, the little country of Luxembourg developed a strategy to mine asteroids for rare minerals. As a result, ongoing and upcoming space mining missions worldwide will drive the expansion of the market over the forecast period.

Restraint: Lack of legal standards for the space mining

The first difficulty with space mining is the lack of defined norms and guidelines. The general architecture for space mining must be built. Investors are less inclined to support space mining investment without a legal framework. The current legal framework was established when national governments mostly held space research and is solely based on the research purpose. With the entry of private actors, however, there is a growing need to develop uniform norms and guidelines for space mining.
