It's electrifying: growth will remain strong, despite safety concerns regarding nuclear power plants

Nuclear Power in the US

Growth for the Nuclear Power industry will remain strong, despite concerns about the safety of nuclear power plants. An increase in demand for electricity will boost industry revenue, while plants will increase their capacity through uprates. Additionally, new nuclear plants are likely to be built in the near future, further supporting consistent growth over the next five years.

This industry consists of firms that operate nuclear-powered, electric-power generation plants. The power plants use nuclear fuel to generate steam, which in turn is used to power turbines that generate electric power. The electricity reaches end-users via transmission or distribution systems. This industry excludes government-owned nuclear facilities.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
