The Nuclear Energy sector in India has been growing rapidly over the past few years and is scheduled to grow at an even more rapid pace over the next 2 decades. It is now the fourth-largest source of electricity in India after thermal power, hydroelectric power and renewable energy Sources. The accelerated growth in the sector is projected due to factors like:
- India’s advances in Thorium-based nuclear reactor technology
- Successful signing of nuclear agreements and treaties with developed nations
- The execution of the 3-stage Nuclear Power Programme
- Extensive exploitable reserves of radioactive minerals
The overall market for nuclear energy in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.91% till FY2017-18 despite the prohibitive Civil Liability for Nuclear Damages Act. This growth is expected to be driven by the completion of 6 scheduled nuclear reactors and the commissioning of at least 10 new ones over the next 4-5 years.
