Palm Beach, FL – January 10, 2024 – FN Media Group News Commentary – Nuclear power is becoming a more dependable and scalable energy source due to the world’s growing demand for electricity, particularly in emerging economies. Thus, the market for uranium mining is supported. Nuclear power becomes a more appealing alternative as countries work to fulfill these targets and switch to low-carbon energy sources. In order to meet these environmental goals, increasing nuclear power depends heavily on uranium mining. There is a strong correlation between the demand for nuclear power worldwide and the uranium market. Uranium is needed as a fuel for nuclear reactors because nuclear power is becoming more and more popular as nations look for greener, more sustainable energy sources. A report from Market Reports World said that the Global Uranium Market is anticipated to rise at a considerable rate during the forecast period, between 2024 and 2030. In 2022, the market was growing at a steady rate and with the rising adoption of strategies by key players, the market is expected to rise over the projected horizon. The global Uranium market size was valued at USD 2646.85 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.6% of 3.6% during the forecast period, reaching USD $3272.84 million by 2027. Active mining companies in the markets this week include Stallion Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: STUD) (OTCQB: STLNF), ATHA Energy Corp (CSE: SASK) (OTCQB: SASKF), Cameco (TSX: CCO) (NYSE: CCJ), Denison Mines Corp. (TSX: DML) (NYSE: DNN), NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSX: NXE) (NYSE: NXE).
The report added: “The global building and enlargement of nuclear power facilities is one factor driving up uranium consumption. Infrastructure for nuclear energy has been invested in as a result of growing worries about climate change and the need to lessen dependency on fossil fuels. Long-term contracts, subsidies, and other forms of government support for nuclear energy can encourage investment in uranium mining. Nations with aspirational nuclear power objectives frequently offer financial and regulatory assistance to the uranium mining industry. The demand for uranium may rise as a result of developments in nuclear technologies, such as small modular reactors (SMRs) and next-generation reactors. The goal of these technologies to increase nuclear power generation’s flexibility, safety, and efficiency. To lessen reliance on imported uranium, nations that prioritize energy security may make investments in indigenous uranium mining. Geopolitical concerns and the need to provide a steady and secure energy supply may be the driving forces behind this.”
