The "Global
Nuclear Decommissioning Market - Analysis of Growth, Trends and
Forecasts (2018 - 2023)"
report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's
offering.

Several stringent regulations were introduced, as a result of
decommissioning of several low-performance nuclear reactors. After the
Fukushima nuclear power plant accident, governments, across the globe,
started reviewing their nuclear power plant status, and they have also
reduced the time span for regular reactor inspections.

Several countries in the European Union (EU) are actively considering
retracting nuclear power, due to the benefits of integrating renewable
energy generators. After the Fukushima incident, countries, such as
Germany and France, have taken drastic measures to phase-out their
nuclear power programs. As of 2017, nuclear energy accounted for
approximately 75% of the power generation in France.

The United States has 99 nuclear reactors, more than any other country,
with 102 gigawatts of electricity generation capacity, which can power
about 70 million homes. However, nuclear energy development in the
United States has become almost entirely dormant in the past decade, due
to the high upfront costs, at least partly created by stringent
regulations and licensing requirements as well as competition from other
energy sources.

South Korea began its nuclear decommissioning program in 2017.
Decommissioning of country's oldest reactor is undergoing a lengthy and
costly process of being dismantled. It has only 17 technologies for
nuclear decommissioning, and has not acquired 21 technologies related to
decommissioning preparation, dismantling, decontamination, waste
disposal, and environmental recovery. The country is looking to ramp up
its efforts to develop technologies associated with decommissioning.
