The market for space products is growing and demand for microchips remains high. An important focus for Beyond Gravity in the coming years will be the profitable completion of the major projects secured, the consistent quality assurance and adherence to deadlines for the customers and the profitable implementation of the investments initiated in the reporting year. Additional orders can also be expected due to the increase in the ESA budget for the planning period 2023-2025.
In future, the Space segment will focus even more clearly on strategic customer partnerships, profitable projects and new areas of business. Investments are also flowing into the expansion of digital platforms, increased production and enhancing the attractiveness of the working environment. As already communicated, the privatisation of the Space business area should take place by end of 2025 at the latest.
