In its monthly report, OPEC predicts that 2022 demand will increase by 4.2 million barrels per day, unchanged from the September outlook, with global demand expected to average 108 million barrels per day.

The 2022 non-OPEC supply growth forecast has been revised to 3 million barrels per day, up 100,000 barrels due to a baseline change.
