While global space launch expenditures will spike in 2013 and 2014, these will gradually drop as competition between commercial companies for space launch contracts heats up. The global commercial space launch market will transition from the oligopoly of United Launch Alliance (ULA), Arianespace, and International Launch Services (ILS) to a more competitive market with several, smaller companies that manufacture cost-effective launchers.
