Energy Demand May Fuel the Growth of the Shale Gas Pumps Market

This research service analyses future trends in the European shale gas pumps market. It determines the impact of political and public opposition towards hydraulic fracturing on the shale gas pumps market. It provides an analysis of the various projects in the shale gas industry, the key environmental legislations and a risk-versus-reward scenario for pump manufacturers. The study has also been divided into country and regional segments and the key drivers and restraints, key oil and gas companies and shale gas reserves for each of these regions have been provided. Market drivers and restraints and their impact over the short, medium and long term have been discussed.

Executive Summary

• The European shale gas pumps market is presently at a nascent stage. It is expected to post a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of X per cent between 2012 and 2017 in the Normal Scenario.
• Exploratory drilling activities are being carried out across various regions in Europe, particularly in Eastern Europe, the United Kingdom and Germany. However, it is estimated that the commercial viability of shale gas would commence only during the long term of the forecast period.
• The growing need among European countries to be self-sufficient pertaining to their energy requirements and greater political acceptance of shale gas exploration are likely to drive the growth of the European pumps market in the shale gas industry.
• Environmental concerns, such as the risk of earthquakes and water pollution as a result of the fracking procedure, are likely to be the major hindrances for the growth of the European pumps market in the shale gas industry.
• Eastern Europe is the largest market for pumps in the shale gas industry in Europe. It is also forecast to witness the highest growth, due to expected investments by major oil and gas companies. Poland and Ukraine are estimated to have significant reserves of shale gas and are likely to witness increased exploratory activities during the forecast period.
• Centrifugal pumps have a bigger share of the total market. This is due to the application of these pumps in transporting the large volumes of water that is required for hydraulic fracturing. Among positive displacement pumps, progressive cavity and reciprocating pumps are the most common types of pumps used in shale gas exploration.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Increased investment in drilling test wells and conducting exploratory activities are expected to boost the shale gas pumps market.
2. The mandatory requirement to treat the water that has to be pumped back into the wells is likely to offer growth prospects for pump manufacturers.
3. The energy policies of the various local governments across Europe depend on the commercial viability of shale gas exploration. These policies may have a major bearing on the growth opportunities for pump manufacturers.
4. Pump manufacturers who have a strong foothold in the North American shale gas market are likely to dominate the shale gas pumps market in Europe, due to their experience in shale gas exploration.
5. In 2011, shale gas exploration in France was banned. This is likely to continue during Mr Francois Hollande’s on-going presidential term.

Market Overview—Definitions

Centrifugal Pump
This pump employs a rotating impeller to enhance the pressure of the fluid that is transferred. The inlet is along the rotating axis and the fluid is forced out axially or radially, after acceleration, by the rotating impeller. Centrifugal pumps include single-stage, multi-stage, submersible, seal-less and circulator pumps.

Positive Displacement Pump
This pump causes fluid to move by trapping a fixed amount of the fluid and then forcing it into the discharge pipe. A positive displacement pump produces the same flow at a given speed, regardless of the discharge pressure. Positive displacement pumps include rotary, reciprocating and peristaltic pumps.

Market Overview—End-user Definition

Oil and Gas
The oil and gas industry comprises of companies that are involved in the exploration, production, transportation and refining of oil and gas. This includes upstream, midstream and downstream sectors.

Upstream Sector
The upstream sector, also known as the exploration and production (E&P) sector, refers to the searching, recovery and production of shale gas. It involves drilling and operating exploratory wells to recover shale gas.

Midstream Sector
The midstream sector refers to the transportation of shale gas, water and other fluids from the production facilities to refineries, through pipelines and other means of transportation, such as mobile trucks.

Downstream Sector
The downstream sector refers to the refining of shale oil and selling and distribution of shale gas and other products derived from shale oil. It involves refineries and wastewater treatment plants.

Note:
Revenues generated from services and from sale of spare parts are not considered within the scope of this study.
