Scotland’s space sector is projected to see substantial growth, with revenue expected to reach £4 billion in the next six years and the creation of over 12,000 new jobs by 2030. This growth is bolstered by recent investments in Scottish space tech companies, including the £16.7 million Series C funding secured by UK rocket manufacturer Orbex in April 2024 and the £320,000 investment in Edinburgh-based Aurora Avionics in May 2024.

The partnership also aligns with the Scottish Government’s Global Capital Investment Plan, which aims to build connections with financial centers worldwide, strengthening Scotland’s role in the international space economy.

Dr. Campbell mentioned that this partnership is just the beginning, with more collaborations planned to further support the sector. He encouraged Scottish companies in the space industry to engage with SSN to discuss their investment needs, helping to tailor support and meet the sector’s demands effectively.
