The market is driven by the cost-effectiveness of nuclear power. In addition, the technological developments targeted towards the next-generation nuclear reactor are anticipated to boost the growth of the nuclear powered naval vessels market.
Naval vessels that run on fossil fuels are associated with high operational costs. For example, the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer typically consumes 24 barrels of fuel per hour and it varies depending on factors such as wind force, payload, tides, and others. This makes them too expensive to operate. These factors are increasing the preference for nuclear powered naval vessels. These are powered by uranium fission reaction that generates heat, which is further used to make steam to produce electricity. In addition, the cores of nuclear-powered carriers are designed to last for 25 years, while those of submarines last for 10-33 years before having to undergo refueling. This significantly reduces the cost of power generation, which is one of the key factors driving the growth of the global nuclear powered naval vessels market.
