Navigating the Global Nuclear Power Landscape: Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities

Dublin, Oct. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Nuclear Power Industry - Forecast and Analysis 2023" report has been added to's offering.

The global nuclear power industry has been a significant contributor to the world's electricity generation for many years, with a total capacity of approximately 398 gigawatts (GW) in 2021. This capacity is spread across 442 operating reactors in 30 countries.

The Asia-Pacific region has become a major player in the nuclear power industry, with countries like China, Japan, and South Korea leading the way. China, in particular, has rapidly expanded its nuclear power capacity, boasting 50 operating reactors with a total capacity of around 51 GW as of 2021.

Europe is also a significant player in the global nuclear power sector, with France, Russia, and the United Kingdom being prominent countries. France, known for its heavy reliance on nuclear energy, operates 56 reactors with a capacity of approximately 63 GW.

In North America, the United States has the highest number of operational reactors, standing at 93 with a capacity of approximately 98 GW. However, the U.S. nuclear industry has faced challenges in recent years, including competition from natural gas and renewable energy sources, leading to the closure of some older reactors. Nevertheless, the U.S. is exploring options for new nuclear projects, including advanced reactor designs.

The global nuclear power industry has seen both expansions and contractions in recent years. While some countries have embraced nuclear energy as a low-carbon solution, others have scaled back or phased out their nuclear programs due to safety concerns and public opinion. The industry also faces challenges related to high construction costs, regulatory hurdles, and the safe disposal of radioactive waste.

The report provides a detailed examination of the worldwide nuclear power sector. The report covers various aspects of the industry, including an overview, historical statistics, segmentation, price trends, capacity expansion, public sentiment, and more. It also includes analyses such as SWOT analysis, Porter's Five Forces Strategy analysis, and a PEST analysis to evaluate the competitive landscape and external influences.

Economics related to nuclear power, including capital costs, operational costs, system costs, and external costs, are thoroughly examined in the report. Additionally, the report compares the economic viability of nuclear power with other electricity generation methods and discusses investment incentives.

The report also addresses the environmental implications of nuclear power in mitigating climate change and explores the challenges and barriers the industry faces. It provides a forward-looking perspective on the industry's outlook until 2026 and 2030, including a comparative assessment with alternative power resources.

Furthermore, the report conducts an in-depth analysis of key nuclear power markets worldwide, including Japan, China, India, the U.S., Ukraine, Russia, and more.
