Palm Beach, FL – March 1, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Heightened demand and worldwide political unrest should increase the price of uranium in 2022 reports say. One report from Street Wise Reports projected that political unrest in Kazakhstan and a buildup of stockpiles is leading to tightened demand and opportunities for growth in uranium in 2022. It said: “The new year offers new opportunities for investors in the uranium market, as political unrest in top-producing Kazakhstan promises to tighten demand on the industry.” In a recent industry report by Haywood Securities, analysts said the problems in Kazakhstan, plus a buildup of uranium inventory by the Sprott Physical Uranium Trust, could reignite the metal’s spot prices near-term and accelerate a permanent shift toward higher prices. “We maintain a long-term bullish thesis on uranium demand/supply and commodity price and believe this short-term setup could rapidly transform into a mid-term accelerant and market tightening mechanism if there is any production impact in Kazakhstan,” Haywood analysts said in the report. Active companies in the markets today include: BASIN URANIUM CORP. (OTCPK: BURCF) (CSE: NCLR), Denison Mines Corp. (NYSE: DNN) (TSX: DML), Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSE: UEC), Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE: UUUU) (TSX: EFR), Cameco (TSX: CCO) (NYSE: CCJ).
The Street Wise report continued: “Uranium from mining is used primarily as fuel for nuclear fission in power plants, but it is also used in the medicine, food production, and space industries. There are currently about 440 nuclear reactors operating worldwide, according to the World Nuclear Association. In 2020, they provided about 10% of the world’s electricity. About 55 additional plants are being built at a time when conventional coal-fired generation of electricity is simultaneously shrinking. Most uranium collection is volume-intensive and done through open pit mining. After Kazakhstan, Australia and Canada are the other top-producing countries at 13% and 8%, respectively, according to a report by Kitco Metals Inc.”
