IEA: First-half global oil demand growth slowest since 2008
World oil demand increased by just 520,000 b/d year-over-year during January-May—the slowest pace for this period since 2008, according to the International Energy Agency’s latest Oil Market Report.
In this year’s first half, many large economies reported weak gross domestic production growth linked to lower trade and manufacturing output.The International Monetary Fund reduced its growth estimates for 2019 and 2020 by 0.1 of a percent to 3.2% and 3.5%, respectively.
Due to sluggish first-half oil demand growth and a weaker economic outlook, IEA lowered its global oil demand growth forecasts for 2019 and 2020 by 100,000 b/d and 50,000 b/d, to 1.1 million b/d and 1.3 million b/d, respectively.
Demand of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has fallen for three quarters in a row for the first time since 2014. Fuel oil and naphtha have shown substantial drops because of lower deliveries to the power sector in South Korea and Japan and reduced demand for petrochemicals. Several months before the implementation in 2020 of the new International Maritime Organization rules for bunker fuel quality, OECD demand for fuel oil appears to have fallen to its weakest level in more than a decade.
Preliminary data for the US for June and July shows lower year-over-year demand for motor fuels, particularly gasoline, at the start of the peak driving season.
