Global transportation demand moves higher

  • Global transportation demand grows about 25 percent from 2015-2040
  • Personal mobility demands continue to increase, but more efficient vehicles lead to a peak and eventual decline in light-duty vehicle (LDV) energy demand
  • Growth in economic activity and personal income drives increasing trade of goods and services, leading to higher energy demand in the commercial transportation sectors 
  • Heavy duty growth is the largest by volume, but marine and aviation grow the largest by percentage
