Identifying Major Market Trends
The Ux Consulting Company (UxC) announces the publication of the fifth edition of a comprehensive annual report analyzing the entire global Nuclear Industry Value Chain (NIVC). This updated report includes 400 pages of 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., there are still many reasons for a continued expansion of global nuclear power. The key arguments for nuclear expansion include a world hungry for all forms of energy, increased concerns over greenhouse gas emissions, and a desire by countries 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 growing, worldwide 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.
Enhancements for the 2014 edition include:
- Updated forecasts for global nuclear power through 2030
- Improvements to price and market size forecast modeling
- Analysis of how recent events are impacting the front-end fuel markets (e.g., end of the Megatons to Megawatts program, reduced demand after Fukushima, potential for Russian sanctions due to the Ukraine situation, increased enricher underfeeding, etc.)
- Reviews of each NSSS vendor’s prospects for securing new reactor project contracts
- Discussion of the potential implications of extending reactor lifetimes beyond 60 years (i.e., “Life After 60”) and the future capital spending profile for the existing reactor fleet
- Analysis of the how the decommissioning market has been affected by the post-Fukushima shifts in nuclear power
