Nuclear Market Opportunities in India - 2012

NEW YORK, Dec. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Nuclear Market Opportunities in India - 2012


Amidst the pandemonium in the wake of the Tsunami-induced disaster in Japan's Fukushima nuclear reactor, nuclear energy has fallen into disfavour worldwide. But on July 18, 2011, energy-starved India went ahead and commenced the construction of the country's 25th nuclear power plant at Rawatbhata in the state of Rajasthan.

The NSG waiver in 2008 ended India's nuclear apartheid. The scope for fuel mining, technology transfers and foreign investments increased considerably. This also has opened up the private investment market. Today, 45 member countries of the NSG are competing with each other to get a chunk of the lucrative Indian nuclear energy market. The subsequent Indo-US nuclear deal is expected to result in an increase in secondary support services such as transportation and nuclear fuel storage.

With the prospect of conventional energy sources diminishing drastically in the next two decades, nuclear energy is gaining more ground as a viable energy source. India is the Sixth largest producer of nuclear energy in the world with installed capacity of 4,780 MW of electric power. With six new nuclear reactors to come up in next five years, the total capacity will increase to 9,580 MW.

At present, India obtains 2.6 percent of its total energy requirements from nuclear energy. The government is planning to increase this share to 10 percent by 2020 and 25 percent by 2050. This translates into a substantial rise in installed nuclear power generation capacity from the current level to 20,000 MW by 2020. To meet these targets, the government has announced investments of USD 77 billion in new nuclear power plants between 2010 and 2020.

Our report outlines the global and Indian perspectives of nuclear energy and its future growth potential, along with the impact of the 2008 Indo-US nuclear deal. We examine both India's indigenous nuclear power program and its advancement in research and development. We also profile the currently operational and planned nuclear power plants. Furthermore, the role of Indian government in atomic energy, its organizational structure and regulatory aspects have also been discussed. The report also highlights the non-power applications of nuclear energy in the fields of nuclear medicine, diagnostics and food &agriculture, among others.

This report will facilitate the decision making capability of industry researchers, analysts, financial institutions offering credit services to the sector, banks, suppliers of equipment & technologies and service providers for business development. It will also provide support to foreign companies that are considering entering into joint ventures with Indian companies to develop this sector.
