Global Report on Nuclear Power Market - Global Industry Outlook and Forecasts 2012 – 2018

Increasing concerns about the use of conventional thermal energy sources, developed economies are largely dependent on nuclear energy for power generation in order to satisfy their power demands. Nuclear power is used for the generation of electricity across the world due to its power efficiency and sufficient availability. Nuclear disasters in the past few years have questioned the safety of using nuclear power. This industry has been experiencing tremendous growth in the past few years. Significant technological development in reactor technology, safety measures, and zero carbon emissions from nuclear power plants are some important factors driving the growth of this market. Impact of nuclear disaster remains foreseen in the coming years, but there are many countries adopting this technology to meet their energy demands.
The global market for nuclear power is expected to grow at the compounded annual growth rate of 4% during 2011-2020. Compared to other power generation technologies, nuclear power has the minimum impact on greenhouse gas emission.
