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.
