Global Nuclear Powered Naval Vessels Market 2017-2021

About Nuclear Powered Naval Vessels

A nuclear-powered naval vessel uses nuclear energy to power its propulsion system and is constructed with a nuclear power plant placed inside a section of the ship, which is coded as the reactor compartment. The components of the nuclear power plant include a high-strength steel reactor vessel, heat exchanger, steam generator, and associated piping, pumps, and valves. Each nuclear reactor plant contains over 100 tons of lead shielding, a part of which is made radioactive through contact with a radioactive material or by neutron activation of impurities in lead.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global nuclear powered naval vessels market to grow at a CAGR of 5.77% during the period 2017-2021.
