The space-based economy in X Rebirth is built around the manufacture and sale of ware, and their amalgamation with each other to create new wares of higher quality. Wares fall into two broad varieties, which are whether they are harvested in space or manufactured on stations. Although there are some rare mining stations that sell some of the harvestable wares (spoiler link).
Irrespective of whether they are harvested or manufactured, all wares are categorised into one of four types depending on how they are packaged and transported.
|Bulk||Harvested minerals and lower-quality goods||Silicon and Ice|
|Liquid||Harvested fluids and purified water||Plasma|
|Energy||Diffuse things packaged into cells||Energy and Plasma Cells|
|Container||Many intermediate and higher-grade goods|
