The future technology requirements for magnetic fusion have been identified from an assessment of the conceptual design studies that have been performed. A summary of worldwide conceptual design effort is presented. The relative maturity of the various confinement concepts and the intensity and continuity of the design efforts are taken into account in identifying future technology requirements. A major conclusion of this study is that there is a high degree of commonality among the technology requirements identified for the various confinement concepts.
