03 Status of import and export in space sector

Total exports decreased by 503.7 billion won (28.3%p) compared to the previous year, and the decrease in exports is mainly due to the decrease in satellite reception set-top box-related exports in the satellite broadcasting and communication sector.

Total imports were found to have decreased by 206.1 billion won (35.0%p) compared to the previous year, and the decrease in imports was mainly due to the decrease in imports of companies in the satellite broadcasting and communications sector.
