M&A in the Energy, Utilities & Mining, Oil & Gas Sector According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), global energy demand will increase through 2035. The center of global energy demand is moving decisively toward emerging economies – they account for more than 90% of the net energy demand. The market for natural gas is becoming more global, with potential pricing implications. The growth of future global coal demand is uncertain, particularly because of the varying stringencies of environmental policies.

Oil & Gas is moving south towards South-America and Africa. We see a weakening of prices per barrel and declining investments in the development of new oil fields. Drilling companies and oil service suppliers are experiencing difficult times. Estimates of recoverable oil resources continue to increase as technologies to unlock types of resources, such as light tight oil, that were not considered recoverable only a few years ago. Oil use in 2035 may be concentrated in just two sectors: transport and petrochemicals.

Global demand for energy is increasing rapidly, because of population and economic growth, especially in emerging market economies. Global investment in the power sector amounts to $17 trillion by 2035, with over 40% in transmission and distribution networks.
