Uranium for immediate delivery could average $55 a pound in 2013, according to the median estimate of five analysts surveyed by Bloomberg news. Prices for the commodity last year declined 14 percent to average $48.72, and in November hit a three-year low. Speculation that uranium demand is on the rebound has been gaining momentum ever since Japan's Liberal Democrat Party regained power. The country's previous government, the Democratic Party of Japan, had plans to phase out nuclear power by 2030.
"The biggest pressure on price at the moment is not necessarily the downgrade to demand since Fukushima, it's this massive inventory overhang," said Morgan Stanley's vice president of research, Joel Crane. "Should the Japanese government give the green light to restarts, that overhang is instantly gone and that will be very positive for prices."
