Abstract: Today, the space industry is one of the most innovative, least crisis-sensitive industries, which grows dynamically worldwide. Its development during the pandemic period preserved jobs and created new ones. The research confirmed that through the development of the space industry the so-called incentive state can support the development of the economy, making the country's industry more resilient and at the same time more competitive. The Hungarian space industry, although its economic contribution is only moderate today, employs a significant number of highly skilled workers and introduces cutting-edge technologies. The study analyzes the possible direction and components of the state's role in the development of the Hungarian space sector. With appropriate support and deliberate investments, the added value, growth potential and international cooperation of the space industry can be exploited to a much greater extent than at present.
