Over the past few years, the U.S. and Canada have experienced revolutionary production of natural oil and gas. North America has started generating energy from (cheaper) unconventional sources. 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 third market analyzed in the report is China, which is projected to witness the maximum growth over the assessment period 2017-2027. The shale gas production has expanded the use of natural gas in electricity generation and transportation. 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.
