Nuclear Fusion and Advanced Materials: Emerging Opportunities
Currently, several types of advanced materials are being developed to support the commercialization of fusion power for the next one or two decades. These materials are also finding uses in other emerging markets. This report analyzes recent advances of these materials and the uses in fusion power and other emerging markets such as tooling and generation IV reactors.
- A brief outline of the recent technological advances in certain advanced materials and their usage in the commercialization of fusion power over the next few decades
- Discussion of the key advanced materials, technologies related to fusion power, and their current and future marketplace
- Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2018, estimates for 2019, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2025 (in value and volumetric terms)
- Market potential for some key metals, composites and polymers; their market trends and forecast value up-to 2050
