The article presents an outlook for the global nuclear power industry. The United States has the world's most number of operational nuclear power plants followed by the Soviet Union and Japan. It has become indisputable that constructing and operating nuclear generating equipment is an expensive, complex and demanding job. It seems that near-term growth of reactor markets in the less developed countries is unlikely. The national and international political impediments to the deployment of nuclear power will gradually disappear. It is not also plausible that the end of the pattern of cancellations and deferrals could be the same for both developed the developing countries.
