Global gas demand is forecast to increase at an annual rate of 1.8% from 2010 to 2035. Our H2 2016 forecast and H1 2016 forecast are very similar with global demand forecast to reach 4 081 bcm by 2025 and 4 715 bcm by 2035 (vs 4 067 bcm and 4 695 bcm in our H1 view). Gas demand will be dominated by increasing penetration of the power generation and industrial sectors. Globally these two sectors account for around 70% of growth over the forecast period. However regional dynamics differ with strongest regional growth prospects in China North America and the Middle East.
