What is Small Modular Reactors? How Big is Small Modular Reactor Market Size?

  • Overview

Small modular reactors (SMRs) are nuclear reactors designed with module factory fabrication. SMRs have an electrical power capacity of up to 300 MWe. They can produce a large amount of low-carbon electricity. Small and modular design is a known benefit of SMR. Prefabricated units of SMRs can be constructed and transported, and installed on-site, making them cost-effective to fabricate compared to large power reactors.

SMRs also have fewer fuel requirements. Power plants built with SMRs may require refueling every 3 to 7 years, while conventional plants need frequent refueling between 1 and 2 years. The low fabrication cost of small modular reactors (SMRs) is one of the prominent factors driving the small modular reactor market size growth. Also, increasing preference for small and mid-sized reactors due to their power generation capacity is boosting the market growth.

Growth Driving Factors

  • The power output capacity of SMRs flourishes the market growth

The rising demand for advanced SMRs, favorable government guidelines, and initiatives related to decarbonization is fueling the industry growth. The demand for SMRs is growing due to their flexibility and compact size. Also, their power output capacity positively influences the small modular reactor market sales. Rapid technological and economic development of small modular reactors (SMRs) in solar power, biomass, and fossil energy with carbon capture is positively influencing the market growth.

Moreover, the growing deployment of SMRs across different power companies augments the industry's evolution. Increasing number of environmental initiatives associated with the development of SMRs is anticipated to flourish the small modular reactor market demand. For instance, in October 2019, IAEA conducted the International Conference on Climate Change and the Role of Nuclear Power, which unveiled that these reactors are more efficient in generating CO2-free electricity than fossil fuel-operated power plants.

Recent Developments

  • In October 2020, the Japanese government unveiled its ambitious plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) to net-zero by 2050, setting Japan on course to create a carbon-neutral society.
  • In July 2021, China introduced a commercial construction project related to onshore nuclear using a small modular reactor – Linglong One.

Segmental Analysis

  • Multi-mode plant segment dominates the market

Based on deployment of small modular reactor market segmentation, the multi-mode plant segment accounts for the largest revenue share and is anticipated to show the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The financing of additional units of SMR is easier in the multi-mode plant, which leads to a decrease in multiple productions. Also, this deployment type offers greater flexibility to grid operations, enables combination with renewables, and allows replacing existing nuclear power plants. Multi-mode configuration helps reduce investment and financial costs. Thus, many power companies are increasingly administrating multi-mode SMR, which is projected to accelerate segment growth.

  • Power generation segment is likely to witness the largest market share

Based on application, the power generation segment is expected to hold the highest revenue share in the small modular reactor market. This can be attributed to the growing implementation of the small modular device in power plants, as they have the ability to integrate with renewable energies to produce a baseload and flexible power. In addition, SMRs are gaining high demand due to their flexibility in terms of power generation capacity. SMRs can generate safe, clean, and affordable nuclear power, thereby fueling the segmental growth in the small modular reactor industry.
