Executive Summary 


The global nuclear power industry has been a significant player in the energy sector, providing a substantial portion of the world's electricity for several decades. Despite facing various challenges, it has remained a critical source of clean and reliable power. As of 2021, the worldwide nuclear power capacity stood at approximately 398 gigawatts (GW), supplied by 442 operating reactors across 30 countries.


In terms of market statistics, the Asia-Pacific region has emerged as a major hub for nuclear power, with countries like China, Japan, and South Korea leading the way. China, in particular, has significantly expanded its nuclear power capacity and continues to invest heavily in new projects. As of 2021, it had 50 operating reactors, with a total capacity of around 51 GW.


Europe also plays a significant role in the global nuclear power industry, with countries like France, Russia, and the United Kingdom being prominent players. France, known for its strong reliance on nuclear energy, boasts the highest share of nuclear power in its electricity generation mix. It operates 56 reactors, contributing to a capacity of approximately 63 GW.


In North America, the United States has the highest number of operational reactors, standing at 93 with a capacity of approximately 98 GW. However, the country's nuclear industry has faced challenges in recent years, including competition from natural gas and renewable energy sources, leading to the closure of several older reactors. Nevertheless, the US continues to explore options for new nuclear projects, including advanced reactor designs.


The global nuclear power industry has witnessed both expansions and contractions in recent years. While some countries have embraced nuclear energy as a low-carbon solution to meet their electricity needs, others have scaled back or phased out their nuclear programs due to safety concerns and public opinion. Additionally, the industry faces challenges related to high construction costs, regulatory hurdles, and the safe disposal of radioactive waste.
