Shale gas is a natural gas, trapped within shale formation deep inside the earth. It is drilled and extracted by breaking the shale formation, refined, processed, and transported for commercial purposes. Apart from processed and refined shale gas, raw shale oil is also used as raw fuel, hydrogen production, and other uses. During the processing and refining phase, shale gas is refined as well treated with the help of a series of equipment, which are known as shale gas processing equipment. This research study focuses on the overall equipment used in the processing that includes compressors & pumps, electrical machinery, heat exchangers, internal combustion engines, measuring & controlling devices, and others. Separators and filters, hydrator/glycol dehydrator, injection systems, and storage tanks are some of the other equipment that are used during several processes to remove impurities and store purified gas.
The global shale gas equipment market is dependent in terms of growth on shale gas production and it is emerged as the prominent factor driving the overall market growth. Shale gas exploration activities are growing extensively on account of rise in energy demand. This is mainly reported in the U.S., which has the largest shale gas reserves and technological capability to extract and process shale reforms.
This further results into rise in demand for processing equipment. Development of technologies such as horizontal and vertical fracking is making gas extraction more effective and results into optimum gas extraction. This factor further offers scope for gas processing equipment across the globe.
On the split side, adverse effects of gas fracking on the environment and stringent government regulation on the horizontal fracking technology restraints the growth of the market. Water availability during the shale fracking and contamination concerns during the filtration process further creates the need for new filtration tools and makes gas processing expensive. This is expected to be a crucial challenge for processing companies. Nevertheless, rise in shale gas commercialization linked with widening shale gas infrastructure is anticipated to make way for new growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period.
The global shale gas processing equipment market is segmented on the basis of component and region. On the basis of component, the global market is studied across compressors & pumps, electrical machinery, heat exchangers, internal combustion engines, measuring & controlling devices, and others. Others segment includes separators & filters, hydrator/glycol dehydrator, injection systems, and storage tanks.

Shale gas equipment are used to eliminate components such as N2, H2S, heavy hydrocarbons, CO2, and water from the raw shale gas and oil before it is sent for transportation. This method includes various processes such as distillation, filtration, cracking, reheating, pyrolysis, and chemical treatment. Heat exchangers, separation, and filtration equipment play an important role as raw shale gas is drilled from shale formation, which needs to be heated and cooled at several temperature ranges followed by separation and filtration process.
As per the U.S. energy information administration, the global shale gas industry surpassed more than $200 billion revenue in 2018 and as per their estimates it is anticipated to generate more than $390 billion revenue by 2025. Shale gas and oil infrastructure and markets for their related products, more specifically, processing equipment, altogether are heading toward their growth expansion phase as whole. The U.S. is the largest shale gas market, and out of overall natural gas produced in the country, shale gas accounted for more than half of the market share. Hence, trade for gas processing equipment increased in response to the recovering oil & gas prices. In the above scenario, major demand is observed for heat exchangers, separators, compressors, and combustion engines. Furthermore, there is a rise in the investment in the midstream oil & gas equipment due to increase in trade and oil prices.
Due to abundant shale gas reserves, its infrastructure expected to grow significantly over the next decade. Hence, processing equipment is expected to have a promising future over the years to come.
The U.S. reported shale gas production of over 37 billion cubic feet following Mexico and China at over 5 and 2.1 billion cubic feet respectively in 2015. As per the estimates of U.S. Energy Information Administration, the U.S. anticipated to produce over 80 billion cubic feet of shale gas by offering a scope to huge technological investment along with processing equipment manufacturing.
The global shale gas processing equipment market is bifurcated into component and region. On the basis of component, the global market is segmented into compressors & pumps, electrical machinery, heat exchangers, internal combustion engines, measuring & controlling devices, and others. Others segment includes separators & filters, hydrator/glycol dehydrator, injection systems, and storage tanks. Compressor and pumps is the largest segment among all and its growing demand is significantly expanding the global shale gas processing equipment market size.
Based on country, the shale gas processing equipment market is bifurcated across the U.S., Canada, China, Mexico, Algeria, Argentina, an Others. The U.S. accounted for largest shale gas processing equipment market share over other countries. However, China is expected to exhibit highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Key Findings of the Shale Gas Processing Equipment Market:
