AvWeb reports on a respected study done by Futron Corp.:

Among Futron's findings: The overall space tourism market could generate revenues in excess of $1 billion per year by 2021; suborbital space tourism has the potential for 15,000 passengers and $700 million in revenues per year by 2021; and orbital space tourism could attract 60 passengers and $300 million in revenues per year by 2021.
