The major market pressure in oil demand will come from the transportation sector, a sector where oil is the principal energy source (over 90%). The consumption of liquid hydrocarbons will be on the increase in developing countries due to the fact that the transportation industry is undergoing rapid growth. • Demographic factors The world’s population will continue to grow rapidly.
