Insights on the Nuclear Decommissioning Services Global Market to 2026 – Wind and Solar Expansion Lead to Renewable Power Revolution –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Nuclear Decommissioning Services – Global Market Trajectory & Analytics” report has been added to’s offering.

The global market for Nuclear Decommissioning Services estimated at US$5.3 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$7.5 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.9% over the analysis period.

Up to 800 MW, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to record a 6.3% CAGR and reach US$5.1 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the 801 MW & Above segment is readjusted to a revised 5.2% CAGR for the next 7-year period.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at $1.6 Billion in 2021, While China is Forecast to Reach $824 Million by 2026

The Nuclear Decommissioning Services market in the U.S. is estimated at US$1.6 Billion in the year 2021. China, the world’s second largest economy, is forecast to reach a projected market size of US$824 Million by the year 2026 trailing a CAGR of 5.5% over the analysis period. Among the other noteworthy geographic markets are Japan and Canada, each forecast to grow at 4.8% and 5% respectively over the analysis period. Within Europe, Germany is forecast to grow at approximately 6.4% CAGR.

The market is poised to achieve considerable gains as a large number of nuclear power-generation facilities, especially in developed countries, are reaching end of their lifecycles. In addition, rising awareness about environmental issues and increasing affordability of renewable power sources such as solar and wind are reducing the economical appeal of nuclear power. With majority of countries playing attention to decommissioning of nuclear reactors, nuclear decommissioning is slated to enjoy immense gains and become an integral component of the nuclear industry in the coming years.

The global market is bolstered by increasing incident of nuclear accidents that are hazardous for the environment and demand effective decommissioning. The risk of nuclear accidents remains a major driver for the market owing to meltdowns of specific nuclear facilities in countries like Japan. In addition, stringent regulations and increasing pressure to close nuclear power plants are likely to further stimulate the demand for these services. The market growth is estimated to be also facilitated by low cost of dismantling research reactors. Moreover, the setup of steel recycling units to dismantle steel components with radioactive material is expected to further boost the decommissioning market.
