Global nuclear reactor construction market will reach $55.71 billion by 2027, growing by 3.9% annually over 2020-2027 driven by technological advancement and growing need to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy sources.  A nuclear reactor is a device used to initiate and control sustained nuclear chain reactions. Nuclear reactors are deployed in nuclear power plants to generate electricity and for the propulsion of ships. Heat emitted from nuclear fission is passed to the working fluid, such as water or gas, to run the steam turbines. Nuclear reactors are deployed to generate isotopes utilized for medical & industrial purposes, and to produce weapons-grade plutonium. Some reactors are operated for research purposes only.  The market for nuclear reactor construction is driven by the growing demand for electricity due to rapid population growth, urbanization & industrialization, and rising initiatives taken by the government. Owing to a rise in safety concerns, especially after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, countries have started investing in advanced technology, such as Generation III nuclear reactors. However, political, regulatory, and economic considerations have also closed some nuclear reactors before the expiration of their life span, especially in the U.S. In addition, difficulty in obtaining raw materials to generate nuclear energy may restrain the growth of nuclear reactor construction market. The global nuclear reactor construction market is moderately concentrated due to few companies operating in the industry because of the complex technology.  Moreover, globally there is a large number of reactors with age exceeding 30 years, which is likely to drive the market over the forecast period. However, the low initial cost of setting up and higher safety of renewable creates an additional demand for renewables to generate electricity which is likely to restrain the growth of the market during the forecast period. The technological advancements have emerged as one of the major factors driving the growth of the nuclear reactor construction market, due to the techno-economic benefits associated with the nuclear reactor technology. The development of nuclear reactor technologies is expected to increase the influx of money in the nuclear reactor construction business in the near future.With the growth in the economies of the Middle East And Africa (MENA), electricity demand is increasing. Major countries in the region accompanied by a few major companies are investing in the non-fossil fuel-based power generation technologies, especially in a small nuclear reactor. Saudi Arabia plans to achieve 30-50% of local content for its nuclear program before 2030. Similarly, Jordan and a few more countries are in the initial phase of nuclear power plant construction which is likely to provide an opportunity to grow the global nuclear reactor construction market in the region after the forecast period. Asia-Pacific holds the fastest-growing region in the turbo-machinery market and is expected to fastly grow further during the forecast period. North America Holds the largest share in the global nuclear reactor construction market. In the wake of growing environmental concerns and surging demand for power, nuclear power generation has become the most dependable option that can cater to the requirements of electricity and offset greenhouse gas emissions. The nuclear power generation is a clean power technology, which can meet the increasing demand for electricity efficiently.

The technology advancement in the industry of nuclear reactor provides better fuel utilisation and increase life span up to 60 years which further can be increased. The new small nuclear turbine is being used in many countries for its low maintenance and guaranteed power supply features. Furthermore, the nuclear reactors which have exceeded 30 years of age are generally not so cost-effective and generally equipped with outdated equipment. Therefore, the countries are trying to replace them with new constructs.North America has a strong focus on nuclear power. The United States and Canada are focusing on nuclear power plant life extension while discovering the potential for small modular reactors. When looking at nuclear power in North America, the United States operates the largest fleet of nuclear power reactors in the world, with 98 units in almost 30 states generating almost 20% of the country’s electricity generation. In June 2021, the construction of unit 5 of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant has formally begun with the pouring of the first concrete for the foundation plate of the reactor building at the site in Tamil Nadu, India.

COVID-19 Impact

The pandemic affected the Nuclear construction market moderately as the construction of new nuclear plants was slowed down in the pandemic because of the issue in human resource and travel restrictions along with lockdowns. The pandemic in turn also had a positive effect in the market with countries around the world realising that nuclear energy generation is more consistent compared to the energy generated by non-renewable sources.
