The factors aiding the growth of the global oil shale market include concerns about depleting crude oil reserves, surge in energy requirement globally, and benefits offered by oil shale such as reduction in energy dependence. However, high costs of equipment, mining, and processing technologies have resulted in increased cost of extracting oil from oil shale, which in turn is expected to hamper the growth of the industry. Conversely, developments in extraction techniques for obtaining kerogen from oil shale coupled with improvements in drilling techniques are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the market in future.

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.
Based on application, the 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.
