Overview of the global mobile money market

The global oil shale market is segmented on the basis of geography, application, and technology. Shale oil is derived from sedimentary rocks containing solid bituminous materials released in the form of crude oil when subjected to heating by the process of pyrolysis. Depleting global natural resources have given an impetus to the shale oil market owing to its abundant availability worldwide. 

Earlier shale oil was used on a small scale, however, the rapidly exhausting crude oil reserves are expected to spur the market. Currently, the high cost of retrieving oil from shale in comparison to crude oil production is keeping vendors from venturing into the market. However, cutting-edge research and the resultant advent of technological advancements is expected to significantly reduce the cost of production, thereby encouraging producers to enter the oil shale market. 

Geographically, the global market for oil shale can be segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World. The U.S. is the dominant global leader of the global oil shale market at present. Latest reports and studies suggest that the shale oil boom in the U.S. has increased the demand for oil shale as a potential alternative to depleting crude oil reserves to satisfy the ever-increasing global energy demand.
