World Nuclear PLEX Market Future Discussed in New GlobalData Report Published at MarketPublishers.com29 May 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The rising global demand for power and high costs associated with new build nuclear are some of the main contributing factors for the increasing importance of plant life extension (PLEX). During 2012 to 2020, electricity consumption is expected to grow at 4% CAGR, increasing from 20.1m GWh to 27.5m GWh.
To date, North America is the largest market for PLEX, valued at USD 42.7 billion, compared to European nuclear heavyweight France’s market valued at USD 10bn. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in the US has approved license renewals for nearly 71 reactors, with 15 currently under review and a further 17 more license applications expected up until 2020.
