The global nuclear industry has been under the spotlight as governments worldwide discuss the pros and cons of nuclear power, particularly after the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011. Regardless of the safety concerns of nuclear power, there is no doubt that nuclear power is here to stay. While many countries have put in motion plans to phase out nuclear power, there are many who are actively boosting the growth of nuclear power.

With the recent spate of nuclear accidents, the global nuclear power industry has seen deterioration over recent years, but nevertheless, the industry is expected to expand and post a strong growth rate in the years to 2020. There are over 400 civil nuclear power reactors in operation around the world today, with the US accounting for nearly one third of the world’s nuclear electricity.
