The sky is no longer the limit as the final frontier becomes the next battleground for commercial dominance.

Over the past few years, the commercialization of space has taken some significant steps forward.

The space race is no longer limited to governmental bodies and space agencies - billionaires like Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson and Elon Musk have become the new major players. Their collective desire to use space for commercial advantage, once an unobtainable concept, is fast becoming a reality.

It is therefore no longer unrealistic to consider the possibility of building infrastructure in space, that will enable corporations to sell new and better products and services to customers, or to service them in faster, more efficient ways.

But why should consumers care about space commerce? Why should earth-bound businesses sit up and take note? How will it change the way we produce, order, warehouse and distribute in the future?

Including the opinions of 4,210 consumers across the UK and US, we seek to investigate the answers to all these questions.
