Unconventional gas is a natural gas obtained from specific locations that are considered to be new and different. The sources of unconventional gas might include coalbed methane, shale gas, and methane clathrate. These gasses are majorly extracted using the hydraulic fracturing technique. In this process, a mixture of chemicals, sand, and water is injected into the gas reservoirs at extremely high pressure to fracture rocks and release the gas.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • The global market for unconventional gas is severely impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic saw a decline in the economic growth in almost all the major countries, thus affecting consumer spending patterns.
  • Owing to the lockdown implemented across various countries, national and international transport have been hampered, which has significantly impacted the supply chain of numerous industries across the globe, thereby increasing the supply–demand gap.
  • Thus, insufficiency in raw material supply is expected to hamper market growth.
  • However, this situation is expected to improve as government has started relaxing norms around the world for resuming business activities.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends , drivers, and impact analysis

With the rapid growth in industrialization across the globe, there is a rise in demand for fuels as energy sources in the market. In the recent past, there is a significant increase in the usage of natural gas in transportation and domestic including both residential and commercial sectors. Moreover, the growing concerns about the environment regarding the per capita carbon emission has also led to the increase in demand for natural gas in the market. In addition to, the abundance of unconventional gas in different parts of the world especially in the North America region has also played a major role in the increasing global consumption. Several major oil and gas companies are investing on the research and developments for exploring different sources of unconventional gas around the world. However, the adverse health effects such as respiratory problems and effects on brain and nervous system caused during the extraction of unconventional gas might act as a factor for the market. 

The North America region holds a significant fraction of the global unconventional gas market. This is because of the high reserves of unconventional gas in places like Canada. The Middle Eastern countries including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iran and others Are investing for rapid development of conventional gas market.
