DUBLIN, July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kgk47n/oil_shale_market) has announced the addition of the "Oil Shale Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2014 - 2022" report to their offering.

This research study analyzes the market for oil shale in terms of revenue (USD Million) and volume (Million Barrels). The global oil shale market has been segmented on the basis of geography, process (ex-situ and in-situ), and application. For the research, 2013 has been taken as the base year, while all forecasts have been given for the 2014-2022 period.

Market data for all the segments has been provided at the regional as well as country-specific level for the 2013-2022 period (Countries that are supposed to achieve commercial production before 2022 are only included). The report provides the market numbers for only North America (U.S.), Asia Pacific (China and Australia), Latin America (Brazil), Middle East and Africa (Morocco and Jordan) and describes the possibilities of shale oil commercialization in other countries such as Canada, Russia, and Serbia.

Only the U.S., Jordan, Australia and Morocco are expected to achieve commercial production of shale oil from oil shale within the forecast period. The report provides a comprehensive competitive landscape and features companies engaged in the oil shale industry.

The oil shale market was further segmented on the basis of process into in-situ and ex-situ. The revenue realization for process is done by multiplying the shale oil produced with forecasted crude oil prices. The application analysis chapter divides the global market into three broad segments: electricity, non-upgraded products, and upgraded products. The classification into non-upgraded and upgraded products is done to provide exact picture of the global oil shale market. The non-upgraded products represent the oil suitable for marine and heating applications, while the upgraded segment deals with fuels such as kerosene, jet fuel, and diesel that are formed after upgrading.

The global oil shale market is segmented as follows:
