Due to the recent Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power accident, safety of the nuclear power plants in Japan have been called into question. It remains to be seen what the final impact of the Fukushima disaster will be on the country as it rebuilds after a terrible earthquake in March 2011.
In this industry scenario, Taiyou Research analyzes the Nuclear Power Market in Japan.
Divided into five chapters, this in-depth research offering from Taiyou Research is a complete analysis of the nuclear power market in Japan.
The report deals with an overview of the global power market which is consistently rising due to rapid industrialization resulting in ever increasing demand for power. 66% of global power market is dominated by thermal power sources viz. coal and petroleum but stringent emission norms and depletion of sources is driving global attention towards renewable technology and nuclear power with a 7.5% market share is going to play a major role in future.
In spite of the Chernobyl disaster and the more recent Fukushima setback, the global installed nuclear capacity is likely to increase at a CAGR of nearly 4% and nuclear generation at a CAGR of 3.9% during 2011-2020. In comparison to other technologies the nuclear power has a nominal impact on greenhouse gas emission.
