Due to their sensitivity to political events and the global economy, energy demand and trade remain extremely volatile. The rapidly changing cost environment for hydrocarbon production and renewable energy, combined with energy policy changes, means the fuel mix in energy markets can be unpredictable at best. Further complicating the outlook is the transition and pace of the energy-intensive developing world from industrial to services-based economic growth, supporting the growing need for power generation.

This Energy Markets Long Term Outlook report provides a multi-fuel supply and demand forecast supported by a breakdown of the key facts.

Companies involved in all sectors of the energy industry can use this long term outlook report to assess inter-fuel dynamics and market drivers for strategic planning and investment opportunities. Use it to understand supply and demand fundamentals across hydrocarbon and renewables.

Analysing 92 markets and providing comprehensive coverage of global energy supply and demand, Wood Mackenzie is ideally placed to offer extensive expertise and robust knowledge of the energy markets sector. We write detailed supply and demand forecasts across all fuels and sectors based on our objective, proprietary data.

      • Key fuels
      • Oil will remain the key fuel in the sector but demand will decline as biofuel use increases, electric car schemes are brought in by local governments and fuel efficiency improves. By 2030, oil will reduce its share of the fuel mix from 92.3% in 2013 to 85.1% in 2030.
    • Residential, commercial and agricultural (RCA)
      • Key sub-sectors
      • Key fuels
      • Electricity demand is driven predominately by the residential sector; 51.4% of total RCA electricity demand (2013). Electricity will continue to be the economic choice for new homes and commercial buildings on the basis of price competitiveness. As such, electricity consumption will increase steadily, seeing the largest absolute increase over the forecast period. Gas is the second most consumed fuel in the RCA. Demand for gas grew by 5.1% in 2013 as household heating and transport demand rose. Over the mid-term, gas demand will be relatively flat growing at less than 0.5% each year to 2030, on average.
