Size & Health of the UK Space Industry 2023

Welcome to the annual survey of the UK space sector. 

Commissioned by the UK Space Agency (UKSA), the Size and Health of the UK Space Industry study is the most important resource to assess the health of the industry and track the effectiveness of UKSA strategies and activities. To achieve this, all organisations in the UK who supply and/or make use of space or satellite services are surveyed once a year to provide input. The study offers insight into the industry growth and developments, including trends of sub-sectors and emerging constraints to the sector.

Dr Paul Bate, Chief Executive of the UK Space Agency, has written to you to explain the importance of your input. You can access his letter by clicking this link.

There are 17 core questions covering UK operations in the 2021/22 financial year (with an estimate also requested for the 2022/23 financial year). These questions should take around 30 minutes to complete. A further 9 supplementary questions consider broader aspects of your organisation.

As a reward for making it all the way through the survey, we offer you the opportunity to upload your organisation’s logo, to be used in UK Space Agency communications about the space industry.

Before starting, we strongly recommend gathering all relevant information in advance (much of which can be found in your financial accounts - see list). Where actual data is not available (e.g. detailed breakdowns), please provide approximations and indicate the evidence-base (actual data, input data used to create a projection or estimate, or an estimate based on limited information or personal experience). 

All responses will be kept confidential, and only aggregate results will be published – for more information, please consult our data protection and privacy policy.  

The survey will remain open until 8th December. We welcome participation online, by email, or by phone (please email for an appointment).
