Global Nuclear Power Market to witness a CAGR of 8.9% during 2018-2024

NEW YORK, April 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global nuclear power market is projected to witness a CAGR of 8.9%, and is likely to reach USD 205.2 billion by 2024. Rise in the worldwide demand for clean energy , particularly from residential and industrial sectors, also the decreasing fossil fuel reserves and is expected to foster the market growth from 2018 to 2024. It has been observed that there is a clear demand for new generating capacity to replace old fossil fuels, especially the  ones which emit lot of carbons in order to meet the demand of the consumers in the coming years. Nuclear energy being a low carbon alternative for conventional sources of energy such as coal and other fossil fuels has expanded its application across a wide range of industries. Increasing technological advancements with regard to power generation as well as decommissioning of nuclear facilities after the end of their life span has further actuated the market demand over the forecast period.

PWR segment was the largest owing to increasing installation rates across the world.

Nuclear reactors can be classified into two major types, namely, water-cooled reactors as well as gas-cooled reactors. Water-cooled reactors such as pressurized water reactors (PWR), boiler water reactors (BWR), and pressurized heavy water reactors (PHWR) have been witnessed to be in significant use. However, owing to the expanding installation rates along with their ease of operation, PWR segment dominated the market in 2017 and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the next seven years. As per the World Nuclear Association currently there are 450 nuclear power reactors under operation, and majority of which constitute of PWRs. 

Nuclear Power Market - Regional insight

Europe region accounted for the largest share of the global industry on account of the presence of key nations such as France, Russia and Germany. Moreover, presence of stringent government regulations in the region so as to limit the carbon emissions has promoted growth in Europe. However, North America is anticipated to propel at a fastest CAGR over the forecast period due to the U.S. being a primary market with largest number of nuclear power reactors in the world.
