Future Market Insights has announced the addition of the “Shale Gas Hydraulic Fracturing Market: North America Industry Analysis 2012 – 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 – 2027" report to their offering.
Valley Cottage, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/02/2018 -- Over the past few years, the U.S. and Canada have experienced a revolution in the production of oil and gas. North America has started generating energy from unconventional sources. Shale gas hydraulic fracturing is one of the most popular methods of extracting trapped natural gas or oil through fracturing of shale rock, which improves the flow of the natural gas or oil to be recovered. The U.S. shale gas hydraulic fracturing is not only changing the country's energy scenario, but has also affected the energy domain globally. The shale gas production has expanded the use of natural gas in electricity generation and transportation.
North America Shale Gas Hydraulic Fracturing: Market Dynamics
A major driver for the growth of North America shale gas hydraulic fracturing market is the cost of shale gas. The prices for natural gas in the U.S. experienced significant decline as compared to the previous years. Shale gas produced through hydraulic fracturing is much more cost effective as compared to the conventional one.
The replacement of coal with gas has reduced the U.S. greenhouse gas emissions to a great extent. This has led to the growth of shale gas production in the region. Moreover, the production of shale gas has created significant job opportunities in the region, thereby driving the North America shale gas hydraulic fracturing market growth.
The increasing use of natural gas in end use industries such as metal, electrical, chemicals and petrochemicals and transportation has led to rise in North America shale gas production.

The production of natural gas releases harmful chemicals such as benzene to the environment, which creates local air pollution. Another restraining factor affecting the North America shale gas hydraulic fracturing market is the large amount of water consumption required in all the stages of shale gas hydraulic fracturing. During the production as well as transportation of shale gas, huge amount of water is required. The production through hydraulic fracturing releases some toxic chemicals that can pollute underground water.
The new trend in the North America shale gas hydraulic fracturing market is the use of heavy refined oils as fracturing fluids also acid-in-oil emulsions, water-in-oil emulsions and soap-type oil gels. The fracturing fluids are being generated using liquefied petroleum gas and propane.
