Market Overview

Shale is a fine-grained sedimentary rock that forms when silt and clay-size mineral particles are compacted, and it is easily broken into thin, parallel layers. Black shale contains organic material that can generate oil and natural gas, which is trapped within the rock's pores. Shale natural gas resources are found in shale formations that contain significant accumulations of natural gas and/or oil. Factors that are escalating the market size of shale gas are an increase in consumption of oil and the rising growth in the oil-dependent industries, new developments in shale gas production technology coupled with the reduction in natural gas pricing and improving supply and distribution infrastructure are accentuating the growth of the market. Moreover, shale gas reserves are found across the globe in significant volumes of about 16,103 trillion cubic feet as per the shale gas report by IEA. North America is the only region active with commercial production of shale gas as of the year 2010 and is expected to remain the largest shale gas market in terms of production volumes by the year 2021 with a share of 78% due to technological expertise and availability of resources.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the market size of shale gas. Several countries enforced nationwide lockdowns as part of measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus.  The growth of the shale gas market was also affected due to the shutdown of manufacturing activities and the decline in demand for commercial services in 2020. In addition, volatility in the prices of crude oil during the pandemic further aggravated the impact on the market.

The Global Shale gas market report is studied thoroughly with several aspects that would help stakeholders in making their decisions more curated.

By Technology, the market is primarily bifurcated into:

·        Horizontal fracking

·        Vertical fracking

·        Rotary fracking

Based on the technology, the shale gas market is classified into horizontal fracking, vertical fracking, and rotary fracking. The horizontal fracking segment caters to extensive market share in the shale gas market. Horizontal fracking helps to access more of the gas, as shale reserves are typically distributed horizontally rather than vertically. In addition, horizontal franking makes it possible to operate multiple target zones from one drilling pad. It enlarges recoverable reserves and significantly increased productivity.
