Global Nuclear Powers and Uranium Investments: Strengthening Security through Uranium-based Weapons

The surge in uranium adoption for nuclear weapons has notably propelled the uranium market's expansion. This rise aligns with increased recognition of nuclear weapons' strategic significance by governments worldwide, with uranium being a critical component. Its radioactive nature allows for nuclear energy production and, notably, the creation of nuclear weapons. The pursuit or expansion of nuclear arsenals by countries like North Korea and Iran has amplified uranium's prominence in recent years, prompting international sanctions.

Uranium Market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7.06% from 2022 to 2027, anticipating a USD 1.60 Bn increase in market size globally.
