Members Area

UKspace is the trade association of the British space industry and has been its leading voice for over 30 years.

It promotes the interests of industry with: the UK government, parliament and national and international stakeholders.

We represent a diverse membership across the industry, and work in conjunction with our members to achieve the best business framework to promote growth.

Together with our partnersADS and techUK, we are dedicated to representing the interests of our Members and supporting them in growing and developing their businesses.

We work alongside the UK Space AgencyInnovate UK, the Satellite Applications Catapult, the Satellite Finance Network and governmental organisations such as Ofcom, Department for International Trade and others.

We have a tremendous opportunity in front of us and remain committed to the goal of raising our share of the expected £400 billion global space-enabled market to 10% by 2030.

The greatest challenge now is for the space industry to reach out to other sectors of the UK and global economy that can benefit from space applications, data and services. The aim should be to create a space-enabled economy where space component provide new advantage that lead to growth, new jobs and increased market share in areas not traditionally linked to space.
