When Will Uranium Prices Go Up? (Updated 2023)

Uranium is an important fuel source for the nuclear energy industry, but many investors were shaken out of the market during a 10 year streak of low prices. Although a rebound is in the works, the commodity is far from its peak.

Driven by rising demand and massive supply disruptions, uranium prices shot up in 2007 from US$72 per pound at the start of the year to an all-time high of US$136.22 by early June. In the years since then, uranium has mainly tracked downward on a steady slope. Since 2012, prices have struggled to trade above the key US$50 level, falling as low as US$18.

However, in September 2021, uranium began to show signs of life as it shot up to a nine year high of US$50.80. 2022 was another banner year for rising uranium prices, which reached an 11 year high of US$64.61 in mid-April. By late January 2023, prices were back in the US$48 range, but there are plenty of signals that the market may be in for upside in the years ahead.

Is Nuclear Waste Safe? Expert Shares Facts for Investors

The energy crisis in Europe has brought new attention to the nuclear energy sector. One of the few sources of baseload energy, nuclear power has become an important component in achieving clean grid-scale energy.

In fact, nuclear energy — which is generated using uranium — has the highest capacity factor in the US. According to the country's Office of Nuclear Energy, nuclear power plants are producing maximum power 92.5 percent of the time, significantly higher than other clean energy sources like wind (35.4 percent) and solar (24.9 percent). Nuclear also comes in much higher than polluting power sources such as natural gas (56.6 percent) and coal (40.2 percent).

On a global scale, there are currently 440 nuclear reactors producing 10 percent of the world’s electricity. That number is likely to grow when the 60 reactors in various states of construction eventually come online.
