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, with nuclear power generation anticipated to fall at an annualized rate of 0.2% in the five years to 2016. Real electricity prices also declined early in the current five-year period, putting additional downward pressure on industry revenue. As a result, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to fall at an average annual rate of 1.0%, to $34.8 billion in the five years to 2016... purchase to read more
