At 16.7% CAGR Oil Shale Market is Generating Revenue of $5,636 million by 2025

Oil shale is a sedimentary rock formation, which contains organic matter such as kerogen, bitumen, and others. This organic matter on exposure to heat produces liquid hydrocarbon products at different temperatures. The recovery of hydrocarbon is done from shale, and it requires advanced drilling technology such as hydro fracturing.

On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into oil, gas, coke, and others. Oil is the most lucrative product type segment in the oil shale market as there is large proportion of oil present in kerogen. Kerogen is the organic compound that is extracted from oil shale.

On the basis of process, the market is divided into in-situ and ex-situ. The in-situ method is projected to be the most lucrative segment, owing to its environment-friendly extraction of oil shale. During the extraction of oil shale, the ground water is contaminated by the chemical that is used in the extraction process. Recent development in the in-situ method is more effective against contamination as a frozen wall is made, which is used to protect the ground water from contamination.

Based on application, the market is bifurcated into electricity, fuel, cement, and others. The cement segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the large production of spent shale during kerogen extraction. This spent shale is used as an ingredient in the cement industry to produce cement.

Estonia and China collectively accounted for more than fourth-fifth share of the global oil shale market, in terms of value. This is attributed to the growing inclination on unconventional oil & gas coupled with new development of extraction techniques, which drives the growth of the Estonia and China oil shale market. Moreover, upsurge in the number of oil shale projects in Estonia and China offers growth opportunities to the oil shale market.
