Macro Outlook

In May, the US National Reconnaissance Office announced multiple 5-10 year contracts with various satellite imagery providers. Winning bidders include YODA holdings Maxar Technologies and BlackSky. Maxar’s 10 year deal could be worth up to $3.2 billion for the company as requests for satellite imagery continues to see robust demand amid the ongoing war in Ukraine.[6] The robust array of satellite deliverables contemplated in these agreements will provide the US with critical intelligence allowing for the gathering of actionable information regarding activities on Earth and in space.

As satellite imagery becomes an increasingly necessary and valuable tool for military and intelligence agencies worldwide, governments and their agencies continue to raise the floor on space industry spending. This revamped interest in Earth-observation and satellite imagery may not only be a benefit for satellite manufacturers and operators, but sending satellites to space also increases demand from launch companies such as YODA holdings Astra, Rocket Lab, United Launch Alliance (a JV between Boeing and Lockheed Martin), Avio and others. As launch costs continue to decrease due to numerous technological advancements, space has become extremely attractive to existing users and new entrants paving the road for the next wave of space industry growth.
