Global government space budgets are in the early stages of a ten-year growth cycle with total world expenditures reaching $70.9 billion in 2018, and forecasted to grow to $84.6 billion by 2025. According to the research, the U.S. government continues to be the world’s largest investor in space programs, with China, Russia, France and Japan following in that order. Among other interesting findings, the research shows that two records were broken in 2018, with more government satellites launched than ever before and more governments launching satellites. Canada holds the 16th position in the world with regards to its government space budget. With 2018-2019 being an important year marked by the launch of RCM and the country's long-term commitments to the lunar gateway, the country's space budget is set for a significant growth in the coming decade, further affecting Canada's impact on the global space scene.
