Earlier this month the IEA released its medium-term outlook for the global oil markets, which provides analysis and the forecast of the key issues in demand, supply, refining and oil trade through to 2024. The report portrays a positive outlook for oil demand growth, which is expected to continue to increase at a healthy pace, in line with the average growth rate seen since 2000. The gains in oil consumption are projected to average 1.2 million b/d per annum between 2018 and 2024, driven by the expansion of the petrochemical industry and the fast-growing aviation sector.
