Nuclear power plants do not emit carbon dioxide or other contaminants to the atmosphere. However, the nuclear energy generation is associated with uranium mining and enrichment process as well as transport which could significantly pose a threat to the environment. Ever growing energy demand, the need for clean power generation and government's initiatives towards achieving energy security are some of the factors which are expected to drive the market growth.

The Europe nuclear power plant and equipment market is estimated to be USD XX billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2021, at a CAGR of XX% from 2016 to 2021.

Nuclear power plants heat water to produce steam. The steam is used to spin large turbines that generate electricity. Nuclear power plants use heat produced during nuclear fission to heat water. In nuclear fission, atoms are split apart to form smaller atoms, releasing energy.
