We read that Elon Musk is focusing not only on designing a functional new space vehicle, but almost foremost on creating a production line of Starship. In addition to the existing and expanding Texas site a new Los Angeles production site is planned.

Elon Musk has demonstrated his capacity to set up industry production activities, with cars and satellites, with a market in view.

What is the purpose of an industrial effort of that scale ? The vehicle is reusable by design and has a huge capacity so what is the purpose of producing a Starship per week, or more? Were is the market?
