Space industry

The future takes flight here. Our integrated consulting and trust services are designed to empower the boldest of space ventures. We're ready to help you break new ground in the final frontier.

A market facing evolution, disruption — and new opportunities

The rapidly evolving public and private sector space industry encompasses organizations that provide an ever-diversifying array of products and services. From space exploration to domain awareness, engineering to launch, tourism to missions, the technological innovations cascading from the sector have transformative effects across the economy. Areas as varied as defense, agriculture, energy, financial services and even food delivery, all benefit from existing and new capabilities in space.

Where there is opportunity, there also lie challenges. Issues facing space organizations include dynamic market evolutions and disruptions, policy, compliance, and governance changes, constant operating model and supply chain challenges, ground station support, and pressure to launch.

PwC Space offerings transforming the space economy

Our space industry practice enables measurable results, launching our client’s most important outcomes in a human-led, tech-powered universe.

PwC’s unique position in the market, defined leadership in artificial intelligence (AI) services, and trusted client relationships enable our space industry AI capabilities to provide value-driven and innovative solutions for our clients. Realizing the power of your data, augmenting human processes to improve productivity, revolutionizing legacy services, and providing access to intelligence while protecting intellectual property are all but a few of the opportunities we enable.

Aerospace engineering programs, tools, analysis and extensive human-in-the-loop processes have faced an inflection point. Learn about how we have modernized digital engineering, revolutionized flight sciences analysis, and enabled program management intelligence, while maintaining compliance and the digital thread.

PwC is a leader in trust services providing our clients with deep experience and accelerated offerings to support Space industry IPOs, divestitures, partnerships, mergers and acquisitions. Together, we will create the space economy. 

As a leader in tax and audit consulting, PwC is ready to help you prepare for filings, identify opportunities for tax savings, and help you navigate complex and rapid changes to Space law and policy.

Leveraging the growing opportunities within the Federal market, our B2G consulting services cater to the space industry aiming to secure business with the US Government and in turn benefitting their commercial business (i.e., subsidizing research & development costs and improving cashflow). We excel in helping you craft tailored sales strategies that align with your risk tolerance, alongside developing the requisite infrastructure—people, processes, and technology—to successfully bid for and manage Federal awards. By focusing on enhancing your Public Sector go-to-market capabilities, operational efficiency, and compliance, our team brings your business objectives together with strategic models that address both compliance demands and the broader impacts on your organization.

Development in space-connected industries has for decades been led by governments and public-sector funding. Yet today, a vast new worldwide ecosystem of private-sector firms and other market participants is opening up. Crowded with savvy disruptive innovators, the market is evolving more rapidly than ever.

PwC’s space program offers solutions across the full spectrum of scenarios including business model reinvention, IPOs, divestitures, mergers and acquisitions, growth strategies for existing A&D and cross-industry organizations, audit consulting, and a comprehensive portfolio of cloud & digital technologies. Our significant investment in artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities accelerate existing services, increase productivity, and enable new opportunities. And we can help you find value as you navigate the complexities of tax across state, international, and interstellar boundaries too.
