Based on application, the oil shale market is bifurcated into electricity, fuel, cement, and others. The cement segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the large production of spent shale during kerogen extraction. This spent shale is used as an ingredient in the cement industry to produce cement.
Oil shale is a sedimentary rock formation, which contains organic matter such as kerogen, bitumen, and others. This organic matter on exposure to heat produces liquid hydrocarbon products at different temperatures. The recovery of hydrocarbon is done from shale, and it requires advanced drilling technology such as hydro fracturing.

On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into oil, gas, coke, and others. Oil is the most lucrative product type segment in the oil shale market as there is large proportion of oil present in kerogen. Kerogen is the organic compound that is extracted from oil shale.
On the basis of process, the market is divided into in-situ and ex-situ. The in-situ method is projected to be the most lucrative segment, owing to its environment-friendly extraction of oil shale. During the extraction of oil shale, the ground water is contaminated by the chemical that is used in the extraction process. Recent development in the in-situ method is more effective against contamination as a frozen wall is made, which is used to protect the ground water from contamination.
