The global nuclear decommissioning market size reached US$ 6.5 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 9.0 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% during 2023-2028.
Nuclear decommissioning refers to an administrative and technical procedure wherein the progressive demolition of nuclear facilities is executed to the point that it no longer requires radiation protection measures. It involves cleanup of radioactive substances, followed by dismantling of contaminated materials from the plants and safer shipping of hazardous components as some of the standard methods. Nuclear decommissioning aids in eliminating radiological risks and minimizing nuclear energy mishappenings. Consequently, the process is extensively implemented in commercial nuclear power facilities post intensive planning, characterization of radioactive elements, and release of nuclear facilities. Currently, it is categorized into immediate, safe enclosure and entombment nuclear decommissioning service types.
Nuclear Decommissioning Market Trends:
One of the key factors driving the nuclear decommissioning market is the growing number of nuclear power-generation plants reaching their end lifecycles. This is further supported by the increasing concerns about public safety owing to the hazardous effects of nuclear accidents. Moreover, escalating environmental concerns have prompted the uptake of renewable power generation sources, such as wind and solar, which has further supplemented the usage of nuclear decommissioning to inhibit the pollution and soil erosion caused by radioactive particles. Additionally, the emergence of various organizations providing multiple nuclear-decommissioning services, such as dismantling, concepts, post-operational phase, waste package assessment, accompanying support, and decommissioning reports, is contributing to the market growth. Besides this, the establishment of steel recycling units that utilize radioactive materials to dismantle steel components is propelling the market growth. Other factors, such as rapid industrialization, growing instances of nuclear accidents, and ongoing investments in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce novel technologies are creating a positive outlook for the market.
