The global small modular reactor market is projected to reach $18.8 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 15.8%. Primary differences in small modular reactors (SMRs) in comparison with larger nuclear power plants are their low power output (typically below 300 MWe per unit), modularity, and integrated design. Older generation of nuclear power plants are large in size and require huge amount of capital and construction time. Locations far away from large power grid systems find it difficult to install nuclear reactors.  Hence, setting a nuclear reactor is not feasible in remote locations, thus paving for development of smaller nuclear reactors. They have smaller foot prints and as they are prefabricated in factories, constructing them take less time and cost. 

In addition, SMRs can be readily installed in brownfield sites in place of decommissioned coal-fired plants. Thus, retrofitting is possible in case of SMRs. Growing global demand for electricity, flexibility of SMRs with respect to size and power output are some of the drivers responsible for global small modular reactor market growth.

With rise in emphasis on achieving political and technological solutions to climate change, many experts in the global community are turning their focus to virtually emissions-free power produced by nuclear reactors. Therefore, continuous development of small modular reactors (SMRs) offers a potential opportunity to overcome many hindrances presented by larger nuclear power plants, including high costs, complex supply chains, large physical infrastructure, and unsuitability in harsh environments, such as the Arctic.
