IEA: Global Oil Demand Will Peak by 2029

The International Energy Agency (IEA) said Wednesday that global oil demand is expected to reach its highest point by 2029 and start to decrease the following year. Additionally, the IEA projects that oil supply capacity will significantly exceed demand by the end of this decade.

The IEAs June 2024 Oil Market Report published Wednesday forecasts that global oil demand, which includes biofuels, averaged just over 102 million barrels per day (mbbl/d) in 2023 and will level off near 106mbbl/d towards the end of this decade.

Global oil production capacity is expected to increase in the coming years, with the US leading the surge. This increase is anticipated to surpass the growth in demand until 2030. The report predicts that by 2030, total supply capacity will reach nearly 114mbbl/d, or 8mbbl/d more than the projected global demand.
