About the Webinar

KPMG’s 30 Voices on 2030: The Future of Space brings together the different perspectives of 30 senior leaders from the space industry around the world – heads of agency, engineers, lawyers, entrepreneurs and politicians – who paint a very vivid, exciting and challenging vision of what we can expect.

Join AmCham and KPMG on a limited 5-part series exploring what Space in 2030 may look like. We explore the potential of space to open up to new businesses and customers, create new products and services and speak to our sense of curiosity and desire to understand the world beyond our planet. Organisations across different industries – and not just traditional space industry players - that lack adaptability and imagination will be left behind.

When space exploration first started, missions were predominantly government led. This has changed in recent years, with many NewSpace companies building and operating hardware in space, and others leveraging the data and services available. Already in 2020, many multi-national businesses from sectors including agriculture, financial services, government and logistics are investing in the space sector and understanding how it can add value to their businesses on Earth.

By 2030, we expect this will grow considerably. The space industry is forecast to be worth US$600 billion by 2030, with secondary space industries having the most to gain. Join us in this webinar to explore what the possibilities are for organisations across sectors and what the space industry landscape may look like in 2030.
