Growing energy demand in developing countries: a major market driver
Growing energy demand in developing countries is one of the major factors driving the global nuclear waste management market. In the last two decades, developing countries have witnessed a rapid economic growth, owing to globalization and industrialization, which has led to the increase in household income levels and growth in consumption patterns. In addition, the worldwide energy consumption is growing steadily, driven by the growth in the economy in developing nations. To meet the ever-growing energy demand, nuclear power is expected to become an indispensable source of power generation.
According to Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead analyst at Technavio for water and waste management research, “Several governments in developing nations have initiated energy access plans to provide universal electricity access to all within the next decade and are planning to set up nuclear power plants. Even though the installation of nuclear power plants is highly capital intensive, the cost of operation is significantly cheaper than several other power sources. These power plants are expected to be utilized for meeting the base load requirement in most countries.”

EMEA: largest nuclear waste management market
Technavio researchers anticipate high growth for the global nuclear waste management market in EMEA due to demand for clean sources of energy which is reducing the dependence on fossil fuel-based power. The region includes many countries where a large part of the electricity supply comes from nuclear energy. For instance, three-fourths of France's electricity demand is met by nuclear energy.
Other countries, such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt, are also moving toward the implementation of nuclear energy. The growth of nuclear power to replace emission-releasing power generation sources, such as coal and other fossil fuels, will propel the growth of the nuclear waste management market in EMEA.
Competitive vendor landscape
The global nuclear waste management market is diversified by the presence of international and regional vendors. In developed and developing economies, regional vendors are more prominent, thus increasing the competition with international players for market share. The major vendors in the global nuclear waste management market are New AREVA, DMT, Holtec International, North Wind Group, Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company (SKB), and Veolia.
