Space ETF Invests in the New Space Race

A technology shift is simplifying access to space, shrinking the cost of reaching the stars. The Fund tracks the progress of the innovative companies developing tomorrow’s equipment, disrupting established operators, shaping the commercial space age.

With the expense of satellite launchers and satellites falling fast, it’s estimated that space could be a $1 trillion industry by 2040 according to Morgan Stanley Research. That’s up about three times from $350 billion today (see chart).1It's now possible to access this growing industry through Space ETF.

The Commercial Space Age’s Areas present in the Fund

Among others, VanEck's Space ETF is focusing on the following five areas. With an environmental, social and governance (ESG) filter, it avoids companies involved in making controversial weapons.

Space ETF aims at exploiting the growing interest of investors in Rocket Science

As rockets become reusable and satellites smaller, investors are backing businesses made viable by falling costs. This comes at a time when demand for satellite-based internet data is soaring, other applications like space tourism are emerging and governments are keen to explore deep space. Venture capital investors, especially, are flocking in.


SpaceX has pioneered reusable rockets although other competitors are emerging. The SpaceX Falcon 9 has slashed the expense of a satellite launch by a third to $5,000 a kilogram.2 And the new Starship mega rocket could deflate it still further to $1,000 or even $500 according to forecasts.
