Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

The Nuclear Power industry has experienced moderate contraction over the past five years. No new nuclear power stations have come on line since 1996; instead, power generators have increasingly used uprates (i.e. improvements in nuclear electricity-generating capacity) to maximize the quantity of nuclear power available for sale to downstream customers. Uprates proved insufficient, and nuclear power generation is anticipated to fall at an annualized rate of 0.9% in the five years to 2014. Real electricity prices also declined over the past five years, putting additional downward pressure on industry revenue. As a result, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to fall at an average annual rate of 2.3%, to $25.8 billion in the five years to 2014... purchase to read more

What is the Nuclear Power Industry?

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.
