'Unconventional Gas (Shale Gas, Tight Gas And Coal Bed Methane) Market For Industrial, Power Generation, Residential, Commercial And Transportation Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019'

The International Energy Agency (IEA) defines unconventional gas as gas that is technically more difficult or expensive to produce than conventional gas. The increasing energy demand cannot be met by the depleting conventional reserves, especially of oil, gas and coal hence there is shift towards unconventional gases. Shale gas has been dominating the total unconventional gas market and it is mostly produced in the U.S. and Canada.

This report analyzes and forecast global unconventional gas market from the production point of view and not from demand or consumption side. The market size of unconventional gas is given in terms of revenue (USD billion) and volumes (bcf) between the period 2013 and 2019. The study also includes the key drivers and restraints along with impact analysis of each during the forecast period. Furthermore, the report also provides emerging opportunities which are expected to mushroom the market growth in READ MORE >

Unconventional gas resources can be classified into shale gas, tight gas, coal bed methane (CBM) and gas hydrates. They are widely used in power generation and industrial application. Focus towards decreasing reliance on depleting conventional resources is one of the major driving factors of global unconventional gas market. In addition, foreign investment by Asian oil and gas giants to acquire unconventional gas assets is further expected to propel the market growth. Regulatory support in the U.S. and China is expected to increase the production of unconventional gas during the forecast period. However, excessive utilization and contamination of surface water and high cost of production is expected to hamper the market growth in the near future.

Presently, tight gas is largely produced and accounted for 44.4% of the total unconventional gas production in 2012. However, this trend is expected to shift towards shale gas due to technological development coupled with abundant technically recoverable shale reserves. Shale gas is expected to account for more than 47% of the overall market by 2019. Presently, more than 60% of the CBM is produced by North America however; this trend is expected to shift towards Asia Pacific by 2019 owing to huge CBM deposits. Australia is expected to be one of the major CBM producers by 2019.

The U.S. emerged as major producer of unconventional gas due to huge reserves and technological advancement. The U.S. is expected to generate revenue worth USD 59.75 billion by 2019. Asia Pacific is expected to be fastest growing market for shale gas expected to grow at an estimated CAGR of 69.6% from 2015 to 2019. The production of unconventional gases in Europe was above 750 bcf in 2012 and is expected to grow at a sluggish rate during the forecast period. Presently, there is no development of shale gas in Europe owing to federal laws and environmental regulations. However, Europe is slowly catching up with the current shale gas development as countries including Britain, Poland and Germany among others are permitted for shale gas production. The UK government has planned tax reduction policy for the development of shale gas.

Industrial applications of shale gas were prominent in Canada and total production was nearly 318 bcf in 2012. Production of unconventional gases for power generation accounted for approximately 31% in 2012. In terms of revenue, transportation industry is expected to grow at an estimated CAGR of 6.7% from 2013 to 2019. Residential application includes space heating and cooling, cooking and water heating. Residential application is expected to account for over 18% of the total market in 2019. Transportation is expected to be fastest growing application segment growing at an estimated CAGR of 5.8% from 2013 to 2019. Use of compressed natural gas (CNG) as a transport fuel is increasing as it is a cleaner source than gasoline and diesel. Commercial application includes healthcare facilities, warehouses, lodging and food services where unconventional gases are used for space heating and cooling and cooking. Commercial application is expected to reach 4426.3 bcf by 2019.

The global shale gas market is highly fragmented as top five players accounted for 30.6% of the market share in 2012. These companies are vertically integrated which gives them competitive advantage over other industry participants. The global CBM market is concentrated as top five companies accounted for more than 75% of the market share in 2012. These companies have acquired small CBM manufacturing companies and have consolidated the CBM industry. Some of the key participants in the industry include Anadarko, Arrow Energy, BG Group, BHP Billiton, BP, Chesapeake Energy, Devon Energy, Exxon Mobil, PetroChina, Shell and Total among others.
