In 2015, Tekes ordered a report focusing on the societal impact of space activities. The report was based on a survey that was conducted among Tekes’ company customers.

As a part of the overall impact evaluation, Tekes inquired whether their clients’ services, products or processes would function without space technology. 25 % of the companies stated that space technology is a critical part of their business.

Space technology generates a turnover of at least 22 billion €, employs over 40 000 people and creates 13 billion € in exports for Finnish companies.

Business Finland has recognised approximately 70 companies in Finland that primarily work in the field of space technology.

Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment is responsible e.g. for the space policy, authorisation for space activities and the registry of space objects in Finland.
