I agree that it is not critical. Woodworking existed before electricity.

On the other hand, if you are thinking about making cabinets, it is going to immeasurably easier if you have a table saw. If space is your primary concern, there are a ton of options open to you. You can get a benchtop saw or any larger table saw with a mobile base so you can wheel it into a corner when not in use. However, I would also point out that you can get yourself a high quality cabinet saw and remove one or both of the wings (actually you would most likely just never install them since I doubt they arrive assembled). If you don’t need the added table area, that would cut the TS footprint by about half.
