Report Scope:
The molten salt reactors market is segmented into the follow categories:
- By nuclear fuel type: thorium, uranium and plutonium.
- By end-use: power and energy, oil and gas, shipping and other industries.
- By region: North America is segmented into the U.S., Canada and Mexico; Europe is segmented into France, Italy, Germany, the U.K., Russia and the rest of Commonwealth Independent States (CIS); Asia-Pacific (APAC) is segmented into China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and others; and the rest of the world (ROW) covers the Middle East, Africa and South America.
- Estimated values used are based on manufacturers’ total revenues. Projected and forecasted revenue values are in constant U.S. dollars, unadjusted for inflation.

In addition to industry and competitive analysis of the molten salt reactors market, this report also includes a patent analysis and a listing of company profiles for key players in the molten salt reactors market.

The world is going through an enormous development process where every minute gives rise to a new development in technology and product.The change that is being experienced by the global population each day has a significant role in individual lifestyles.

Along with the acceptance of such innovations and technologies by mankind, electricity has become a necessity throughout the world. As a result, the world’s population is getting more and more dependent on electricity, and each and every activity is becoming accustomed to this power source.

With the rise in global population, the demand for electricity is rising enormously.However, electricity has its variety of processes of generation paired with a variety of raw materials such as coal, wind, sunlight, water and nuclear power.

Conventionally, coal was the only material used for the generation of electricity. However, with the major research and development, water, as a source for hydro-electricity generation has earned acceptance worldwide, which resulted in the building of dams and hydro-electric power stations near bodies of water. Furthermore, with the arrival of new inventions, solar and wind power has been adopted by various electricity generation authorities for the generation of electricity
from renewable resources such as sunlight and wind, with the help of solar panel and windmill respectively.

Presently, scientists emphasize producing electricity from radioactive metals such as uranium and thorium, which are processed through nuclear reactors.After reactions that have been observed to have generated massive electrical power.

However, uranium is scarce as compared to thorium; hence, thorium is a much-accepted radioactive metal for the generation of electricity.

The process of transforming metallic ions into electricity has been the much-discussed topic among the scientists and governments for a century.This radioactive process of generating electricity emits a negligible amount of carbon and carbon dioxide.

Thorium occurs naturally and is found in rocks and soils. Thorium undergoes a process through a mechanism called molten salt reactor to form electricity as output.

Molten salt reactor is a nuclear reactor that is safer and efficient in generating electricity as liquid fuel is used unlike conventional nuclear reactors which use solid fuel rods. , The reactor chamber contains fuel dissolved in a mixture of molten fluoride salts. The rate of fission automatically stabilizes when the fuel salt reaches 700 degrees Celsius; however, when it gets hotter than 700 degrees Celsius, the fuel cools down as the fuel salt pushes some of the fuel into the circulation loop. Hence, accidents are less likely to occur. Generally, a nuclear reactor emits massive power when it bursts or leaks; however, nuclear salt reactors are less harmful to mankind in case of a disaster.

This report categorizes molten salt reactors on the basis of their nuclear fuel and present day-to-day end use.In 2016, of all the molten salt reactor nuclear fuel types, thorium dominated the overall market with a share of REDACTED%, followed by uranium with a share of approximately REDACTED%.

Due to the capability ofmolten salt reactors to produce electricity and provide power by emitting less carbon, they are highly used for applications such as power and energy, oil and gas, shipping a nd other uses.
