India’s oil consumption is forecast to rise from 4.8 million barrels per day (mbd) in 2019 to 7.2 mbd in 2030 and 9.2 mbd in 2050, as per the IEA’s key scenario based on stated policies. The projection shows the centrality of oil in the Indian economy over the next three decades and runs counter to BP’s forecast last year that estimated the country’s oil demand to peak in 2025.
