Shale gas is referred to as unconventional natural gas because it is found in shale which is a less permeable rock than siltstone, limestone, or sandstone in which conventional gas is found. Due to this natural gas does not flow easily through the shales. Large volumes of shale gas are produced by the combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing technology which was previously uneconomical to produce.

During the extraction of shale gas from shale there is an additional energy input need during extraction which causes higher emission of Greenhouse Gas than conventional natural gas.

Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Continuously increasing oil and gas exploration activities around the world

  • Increasing demand for shale gas for domestic purposes like heating and cooling

  • Decrease in the natural gas prices

  • Increasing awareness about the benefits of natural gas among the people

  • Abundant sources of shale gas

The abundant shale gas sources which are easily available and the reduced natural gas prices which increase the demand for natural gas across the globe propel the shale gas market. In addition, various applications of shale gas in different industries have driven the market of shale gas.  shale gas is also used as feedstock for the fertilizer industry to produce ammonia. It is also used in the power industry in place of coal due to which many regions are replacing their coal-fired power plant with gas-fired power plants to protect the environment by reducing carbon emissions.

Restrain

  • High initial investment in the shale gas extraction project

Opportunities

  • Technological advancement and innovation regarding the extraction of shale gas

Challenges

  • Increasing environmental concern about shale gas production

  • Harmful effect of shale gas production techniques on the surroundings

The shale gas extraction techniques such as fracking leaks million tons of methane- a greenhouse gas that is more potent than CO2. Along with methane, other airborne hydrocarbons are also extracted due to fracking which causes respiratory and health problems. It uses a large amount of water, which also affects the local groundwater quantity and quality. These factors can create a challenge for the shale gas market.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic had a very bad impact on various industries. The global shale market is one of the markets which is negatively impacted by this outbreak of COVID-19. Due to the lockdowns various restrictions are imposed by the government on the industries as well which results in the closure of various manufacturing units, including shale gas. The stringent social distancing regulation had limited the spread of coronavirus but also limit the production capacity of various industries. Moreover, import-export activities were impacted significantly due to this pandemic, which further severely impacted the industries which use shale gas and thereby hampered the global shale gas market

Impact of Russia-Ukraine War:

The Russia-Ukraine war has had a bad impact on the global energy sector including the shale gas market. The shale gas industry has been growing rapidly in recent years, with the United States leading the way in production. However, the Russia-Ukraine conflict has caused a shift in the market, with Europe looking to reduce its dependence on Russian gas and turn to alternative sources, such as shale gas. The war has also affected the production and transportation of shale gas in Ukraine. The country has significant shale gas reserves, but the conflict has made it difficult to extract and transport the gas. This has led to a decrease in production and a delay in the development of the industry. Furthermore, the conflict has caused uncertainty in the global energy market, leading to fluctuations in prices and investments. Investors are hesitant to invest in the shale gas industry in Ukraine due to the instability of the region.

Impact of Recession:

The recession has had a significant impact on the shale gas market. As the economy has slowed down, demand for energy has decreased, leading to a decrease in the price of natural gas. This has made it more difficult for shale gas producers to compete with traditional gas producers. Furthermore, the recession has made it more difficult for shale gas producers to secure financing for their operations.

Market segmentation

On the basis of technology, the Shale Gas Market is further segmented into Vertical Fracking, Horizontal Fracking, and Rotary Fracking.

Fracking: Fracking also called Hydraulic fracturing is a technique of extracting shale gas and oil from shale rock. In this technique, drilling into the earth is involved which direct the high-pressure mixture of water, chemical, and sand at shale layers to release the oil and gas inside.

There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.

 

The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
