Space Business Investment Outlook: Navigating Geopolitical Trends


Robust capital liquidity, post-pandemic recovery, supply-chain issues and regional conflict that prevailed at the start of the year have collided with more recent trends of turmoil in equity and debt markets, galloping inflation and interest rate rises, and tumbling valuations.
