Abstract. This article analyzes the economic factors that affect the market of engineering, development, and construction of nuclear power plants. The author provides forecast of the key possible trends in this field in the course of technological reforms, which can significantly influence the market overall, as well as the decisions made by corporations. The work examines the feasible criteria for choosing the type of power generation, as well as analyzes the economic components of nuclear engineering from the perspective of the electrical grid into which it is integrated in the context of regional economy. The author provides the main macroeconomic parameters, which affect or affected by nuclear engineering, alongside the consequences of their transformation in presence of a nuclear component in overall generation. The work also presents the examples of secondary economic benefits received from installation of nuclear power plants, and the level of their importance in decision-making regarding the construction of new power plants. The conducted research represents the most extensive analysis of factors that have direct impact upon the market of nuclear power plants.
