Nuclear energy has been the strategic focus of Japan's energy resource since time and memorial. However, with the latest Fukushima nuclear power plant accident in March 2011 and the 2007 Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant accident, there have been many concerns about the safety of Japan's nuclear power plants.
Due to the major problems faced by the country after the Fukushima accident, the country has become quite pessimistic about nuclear power, and nearly 80 percent of Japanese are now of the opinion that the government needs to look for other sources of energy apart from nuclear power.
In this industry situation, Aruvians Rsearch looks at the demand for nuclear reactor coolant pumps in Japan in its research offering Analyzing the market for Nuclear Reactor Coolant Pumps in Japan.
The Asia Pacific region has seen a high level of demand for new installations due to the number of planned and proposed reactors in countries such as India and China, which will become commercialized in the next few years.
However, there are many challenges that the nuclear reactor coolant pumps market faces when it comes to quality and the performance of the pumps being manufactured. The most common causes of nuclear reactor coolant pump problems are leakage and vibrations, as well as human error and issues with older equipment. In the past, there have been leakage problems in some of the nuclear power generation facilities which have led to the exposure of radioactive coolant.
Also, a number of nuclear reactors across the world have been shut down. The decommissioning of these reactors will affect the demand level for coolant pumps even though a number of new nuclear reactors are scheduled to become operational in the future. Recently, four reactors in Japan were shut down following the nuclear crisis caused by the March 2011 tsunami.
Curtiss Wright, Sulzer Pumps, Flowserve Corporation and KSB Pumps are some of the biggest players in the global market for nuclear reactor coolant pumps. Manufacturing companies are majorly focusing on developing innovative integrated design for the nuclear reactor coolant pumps that will enhance the safety and operation of a nuclear power reactor.
