Nuclear Decommissioning Services Market Analysis

The demand and adoption of nuclear decommissioning services are high in the European region. Europe region has the highest number of nuclear power plants globally. As per a recent study, Europe has approximately 140 power plants. In France, there as approximately 60 nuclear power plants, whereas Russia follows the ranking with 45 nuclear power plants. Thus, owing to the high number of power plants in the European region, the demand for nuclear decommissioning services is high compared to any other region. As the demand for services is high in the region, the innovation in the decommissioning is highly seen. For instance,  Slovakia recently completed its decommissioning of its state-owned power plant. During this, the government utilized digital technologies such as virtual modeling and simulations.

Nuclear Decommissioning Services Market Overview

Nuclear power plants globally are mainly operated on three different reactor types: pressurized water, boiling water, and gas-cooled. Most of the nuclear power plants that are being used currently are powered by pressurized water reactors. One of the benefits of the pressurized water reactor is that these reactors are more stable and easier to operate and maintain. Thus, the adoption of the pressurized water reactor is more compared to the other two reactor types. Across the globe, there are approximately 224 nuclear power plants that have pressurized water reactors, whereas boiling water reactors operate 7 power plants, and another type of reactor operates 71. Thus, the demand for the pressurized power plant decommissioning is more compared to other type of reactors.

Nuclear Decommissioning Services Market Drivers and Opportunities

Ageing of nuclear power plants

As the demand for energy across the globe has increased in the past few years, the dependency on the nuclear power plant has increased. Thus, governments across the world started building nuclear power plants. Many of the power plants that are operating globally are near the end of their operational life. For instance, the European region and the UK together have approximately 109 power plants, and approximately 95 of them are near to end of their life. Such aging of the power plant is driving the demand for nuclear decommissioning services.

Adoption of robotics and advanced technology

Owing to the high risks of hazards and the time required, the adoption of robots and drones is increasing worldwide. In addition, to reduce the radiological risks, developed nations have started using virtual reality and simulation technology. The 3D simulations are also helping to understand the real-time effect of the nuclear decommissioning process. Moreover, these technologies are also aiding in workers training part. Such benefits of robotics and advanced technology are projected to create lucrative opportunities in the near future.
