Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The emerging Nuclear Power industry in China has been developing quickly and steadily. Over the past five years, industry revenue has been growing at an annualized rate of 15.4% to an estimated $11.25 billion in 2016. The two major companies, China National Nuclear Corporation and China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group, are state-owned and contribute over 80.0% of total industry revenue. The total installed nuclear power capacity in China increased to 28,599.4 megawatts (MW) by the end of June 2016.

China's economy has been slowing down over the past few years, which has led to a fall in power demand from the manufacturing sector. As such, electricity consumption growth fell...

Nuclear power generated by pressurized water reactors

Pressurized water reactors are widely used in the Nuclear Power industry, and account for 89.0% of the total industry installed capacity. Most pressurized water reactors use second-generation technology, which has been regarded as mature since the late 1980s. With the emergence of third-generation technology, the cost of pressurized water reactors has been further reduced and plant safety improved. Most of the nuclear power plants under construction will use third-generation pressurized water reactor technology.

The downside of pressurized water reactors is that they must be located in coastal or riverside areas, as the operation of reactors requires large amounts of water to keep temperatures down. Thi..
