New Zealand Space Economy: Its value, scope and structure

Executive Summary
New Zealand is a unique example of a space economy
almost entirely driven by commercial activity

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) engaged Deloitte Access Economics to define and map New Zealand’s space economy and estimate the contribution it makes to New Zealand’s economy.

The space economy comprises a range of actors and activities directly and indirectly involved with the access and use of space, and the development and application of space-based services and products across both public and private sectors. To define the New Zealand space economy, this report uses the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) definition as a basis and draws on the detailed definitions in studies of other space economies to clarify which activities fall into individual sub-sectors.

Key insights on New Zealand’s space economy
Deloitte Access Economics distributed a survey to organisations across New Zealand’s space economy. Out of the 220 surveys distributed and 119 unique responses, 104 responses were deemed suitable for analysis. The information gathered from survey responses was augmented with desktop research, financial data and direct consultations.
