The small modular reactor market is expected to grow from an estimated in USD 5.7 billion in 2022 to USD 7.0 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 2.7% from 2022–2030. Benefits of modularization and factory construction is the main driver for the small modular reactor market. Modularization enables the simplification of construction by dividing nuclear power plant structures, equipment, and/or components into modules that can be manufactured in a purpose-built factory, transported, and then assembled on-site. The various benefits of modularization of SMRs such as shortened construction schedules; reductions in construction cost; opportunity for production learning and repeatability; improved constructability, efficient quality control & assurance; and improved project cash flow are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the small modular reactor market during the forecast period.
A few major players that have a wide regional presence dominate the small modular reactor market. The leading players in the small modular reactor market include NuScale Power, LLC. (US), Westinghouse Electric Corporation (US), GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (US), Terrestial Energy Inc. (Canada), and Moltex Energy (Canada).
The major strategies adopted by these players include contracts & agreements, investments & expansions, mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, and partnerships & collaborations. Contracts & agreements and investments were the two most commonly adopted strategy from 2017 to 2022.
