The nuclear fuel market consists of of business, industry associations, and governmental bodies which are involved in mining, refining, and storage of nuclear fuels and building and construction of nuclear reactors. The major application of nuclear fuels is in the nuclear reactor for sustaining a nuclear chain response needed for producing electric energy. The nuclear fuels like uranium-235 and thorium-232 are radioactive metals which are fissile in nature.

Market Insights

India has one of the largest thorium deposits in the world with a capacity of ~360,000 tonnes. Thorium takes place in the kind of a single isotope, Th-232, which deteriorates at a very sluggish rate. The types of nuclear reactors, currently operating in the nuclear energy industry of India are pressurized heavy-water reactors (PHWR), and light-water reactors (LWR).

There are 7 under-construction nuclear power reactors in the nation which will generate a capacity of 5,400 Mwe. As of FY 2017, nuclear power contributed just ~2% of the total power generated in India. The primary monazite reserves in India are present in West Bengal, Jharkhand, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Gujarat.


Both export and import of thorium compounds have increased in India, in terms of value and volume during FY 2015- FY 2018. The largest export location of Indian thorium substances is the United States (U. S.). The greatest amount of thorium, based on value and volume, is imported in India from Kazakhstan.


Apart from the domestic companies, there are a number of foreign companies which have actually shown interest to take part in India’s nuclear power tasks in the form of technology partners, suppliers, contractors, and service suppliers. Westinghouse Electric Company (WEC) and GE H itachi in the U.S., and Electricite de France (EDF) in France and Russia are the 2 significant contributors.

Key Growth Drivers

  • With an increase in GDP, the country is revealing growth in terms of building, manufacturing, and public services. With such appealing chances, India is set to ended up being a international production hub. This, in turn, is expected to boost the demand for nuclear power in the future.

  • India has actually promised to lower the intensity of greenhouse emissions by 33 -35% by the year 2030 from 2005. This initiative is expected to achieve ~40% electrical power installed capacity from non-fossil fuel and nuclear-based energy resources by 2030.

Key Deterrents

  • With the broadening civilian nuclear energy programs, weak export controls of nuclear fuels, and zones of domestic instability, the Indian nuclear power market needs to implement stronger nuclear security policies. However the nation is lagging in this area due to weak policy of the nuclear sector.

  • India has the world’s largest thorium reserve, but the thorium 3 phase reactor is still under advancement, which makes it impossible for India to use its thorium reserve soon.
