Executive Summary

-The North American pumps segment in the shale oil and gas industry is in its growth stage and expected to post a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of % between 2013 and 2020.
-An abundance of shale oil and gas reserves in both the United States and Canada has led to increased investments in exploration and production activity.
-The United States is estimated to be the top oil producer of shale by 2015.
-The need for energy independence and support from state and federal governments has driven exploration and production activity in the United States and Canada.
-Environmental concerns could possibly restrain the growth of pumps in shale. The pollution of water sources and air, and risks of earthquakes prove to be major hindrances of growth.
-Also, low-cost Chinese products are eating into the market share of major participants.
-In the pumps segment, centrifugal pumps have the largest share resulting from the transport of billions of gallons of water used in the hydraulic fracturing process.
