Nuclear Power Market in Kazakhstan

The new report from Energy & Natural Resources Market Reports has been published today. It provides updated in 2018 year analysis of energy & natural resources industries.

Kazakhstan is situated in an unstable region, bordering weak Central Asian republics such as Uzbekistan and near war-torn Afghanistan. Kazakhstan has a major plant making nuclear fuel pellets and aims eventually to sell value-added fuel rather than just uranium. It aims to supply 30% of the world fuel fabrication market by 2015. The government is committed to increased uranium exports, and is considering future options for nuclear power.

Kazakhstan has been an important source of uranium for more than fifty years. Through the period of last 10 years production rose from 2022 to 19,450 tons U per year, making Kazakhstan the world’s leading uranium producer. Mine development has continued with a view to further increasing annual production by 2018.

Capacity is around 25,000 tU/yr, but in October 2011 Kazatoprom announced a cap on production of 20,000 tU/yr. Of its 17 mine projects, 5 are wholly owned by Kazatomprom and 12 are joint ventures with foreign equity holders, and some of these are producing under nominal capacity.

Kazakhstan is of interest for international companies working in power and related industries. With a view of maintenance of stable and reliable energy supply of Kazakhstan, the Government has accurate vision of the development of the country’s power sector-modernization and construction of the new heating and power facilities; the development of the alternative energy sources, energy savings and energy efficiency development; the development of nuclear energy and construction of nuclear station by 2020.

For realization of these goals, the law on using of alternative energy sources was adopted in 2009; the Law on power saving is under consideration of Parliament; research for construction of nuclear station is conducted. Also, for stimulation of investments in power sector the Government of Kazakhstan accepted the program on increasing the prices for electric energy till 2015.

Due to this program 36 investment contracts were signed in 2009. Plans for nuclear plants including large light water reactors for the southern region, smaller units in western parts and smaller cogeneration units in regional cities have been under discussion for several years. In 2010 a trio of Japanese companies signed a memorandum of understanding on a feasibility study for the construction of a nuclear plant, with Lake Balkash in eastern Kazakhstan mooted as a likely location for a plant based on advanced boiling water reactor technology.

In this industry scenario, Taiyou Research analyzes the Nuclear Power Market in Kazakhstan.

Divided into five chapters, this in-depth research offering from Taiyou Research is a complete analysis of the nuclear power market in Kazakhstan.

The report deals with an overview of the global power market which is consistently rising due to rapid industrialization resulting in ever increasing demand for power. 66% of global power market is dominated by thermal power sources viz. coal and petroleum but stringent emission norms and depletion of sources is driving global attention towards renewable technology and nuclear power with a 7.5% market share is going to play a major role in future.

In spite of the Chernobyl disaster and the more recent Fukushima setback, the global installed nuclear capacity is likely to increase at a CAGR of nearly 4% and nuclear generation at a CAGR of 3.9% during 2011-2020. In comparison to other technologies the nuclear power has a nominal impact on greenhouse gas emission.

Chapter 1: Introduction to Nuclear Power covers the following:

– An industry definition and an overview of nuclear power.

– Present-day use of nuclear power and looking at why we need nuclear power?

– We look at the various reasons why the world needs nuclear power, such as the rising energy demand in the world, the global power situation, environmental impact of nuclear, and many others.

– An in-depth comparison is carried out of nuclear power and other power generating technologies such as gas and coal.

Chapter 2: Analysis of the Global Nuclear Power Industry covers the following:

– An analysis of the global nuclear power industry through a market profile, market statistics, industry value and volume analysis, industry capacity and generation analysis, and much more.

– We carry out region-wise industry segmentation, and also analyze the technological trends in the industry and an industry outlook.

– We carry out an analysis of the global nuclear power industry in a Porter’s Five Forces Framework. We look at the global nuclear power industry by taking nuclear energy providers as key market players. The section analyzes the forces driving competition in the industry viz. buyer power, supplier power, new entrants, substitutes and rivalry amongst major players in the industry.

– A brief profile of the emerging nuclear power markets sums up this chapter.

Chapter 3: Nuclear Power in Kazakhstan covers the following:

– An analysis of the nuclear power industry in Europe through a market profile, industry statistics, industry value & volume analysis, industry capacity and generation analysis, and a country-wise segmentation of the industry.

– We analyze the Kazakh nuclear power industry through a market profile, industry statistics, the impact of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, regulatory framework, and a look at R&D in the industry.

Chapter 4: Analysis of Major Global Players is an in-depth study of the major players in the global nuclear power industry with special emphasis on company overview, business analysis and a SWOT analysis of the key players. We include an analysis of nearly 15 players in the industry.

Concluding with Chapter 5, we include an appendix, a glossary of terms, and a research methodology.

Overall, Taiyou Research’s report on the nuclear power market in Kazakhstan is in depth-study of the Kazakh nuclear power market.

Taiyou Research’s report makes an intensive study of the installed capacity and generation, nuclear facilities and region, regulatory policies and framework, major players and competitive scenario with business viability of the Kazakh nuclear power industry.
