After a slowdown in nuclear industry development that lasted for over 20 years, new applications over the last decade opened the possibility of dozens of new nuclear facilities globally.Interest in nuclear technology has also been spurred by increasing concern over climate management and global carbon emissions.

But how does this all translate into changes within the nuclear operations market? Nuclear power plant operations are viewed by many as steady and reliable. Markets must move forward whether or not there is, for example, a global pandemic or a global economic downturn. By their very nature, nuclear power production facilities produce low-cost, reliable power generation that is used by
utilities almost exclusively to support baseload power production. Nuclear facilities are always operating and always producing power at the same rate unless there is a shutdown for maintenance or refueling. Unlike peaking plants or load following plants that vary production based on demand, nuclear plants mostly continue to produce, no matter what. and, therefore, they continue to need operations support, pretty much no matter what.

There are, however, drivers that support and slow markets for nuclear industry operations, fuel and instrumentation.Generally, the construction of new facilities does directly support the industry, because more new facilities translates into more operating facilities that require operational support, fuel and instrumentation.

Moreover, there are some decisions that are made at least in part based on economics.During lean economic times, major or minor upgrades may be delay due to lack of capital.

This has certainly been the case during the COVID pandemic, with capital markets and supply chains drying up at least temporarily.The supply chain, specific to COVID, has been another area of key concern.

Whereas some facility operators would prefer to move ahead with planned upgrades, even with the money to do so, some have been stymied by a reduction in available equipment caused by interruptions of facilities that produce the equipment and by global transport and shipping supply chain interruption. These changes will not be permanent and are expected to increasingly lift as the impacts of COVID-19 move behind us.
