Nuclear Industry Value Chain, 2018 - Analysis on Front-end Fuel Markets, the Overall Nuclear Reactor Sector, as Well as the Back-end of the Fuel Cycle - ResearchAndMarkets.com

February 22, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 22, 2019--The “Nuclear Industry Value Chain” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report on the Nuclear Industry Value Chain (NIVC) provides an overview of each of the market sectors within the nuclear industry, including the front-end fuel markets, the overall nuclear reactor sector, as well as the back-end of the fuel cycle. This includes detailed data and analysis of every aspect of the global nuclear markets with balanced perspectives on commercial and technical issues affecting all parts of the value chain.

Although the nuclear industry continues to be impacted by the fallout from the Fukushima accident in March 2011 as well as other shifts in the broader energy markets, such as the shale gas boom in the U.S. and increasing levels of renewables, there are still many reasons for a continued expansion of global nuclear power, especially in key countries like China, India, and parts of the Middle East.

The key arguments for nuclear expansion include rapid growth in electricity demand, increased concerns over greenhouse gas emissions, and a desire by nations to diversify their energy portfolios in the name of “energy security.” Now is the time to assess the prospects and future course of each of the market sectors in this evolving, global industry. Each market sector has its own unique characteristics, and this report provides the reader with all the necessary tools to start the process of understanding the opportunities and potential pitfalls within each sector.
