Aerospace & Aeronautics

Japan’s aerospace industry has a strong international reputation, particularly in the field of research and development (R&D). Recently, however, it has shifted its focus from R&D to the commercialisation of space technology. The Basic Space Law, enacted in 2008, has paved the way for the development of Japan’s space industry. Demand for satellite technology is expected to increase in developing countries, and Japan is hoping to use this opportunity to develop an export market in satellites.
