The contents of our World Composite Forecasts consist of tables that set forth historical and forecast series for (1) crude oil consumption, (2) crude oil production, (3) dry natural gas production, and (4) nonagricultural water usage. Forecasts are generally made on a country-by-country basis. The series presented in this publication are developed by the Freedonia Group in-house economics department. These are the same series used by our industry analysts in the preparation of our various industry studies. Historical figures are presented for 2001, 2006, and 2011; forecasts are provided for 2016 and 2021.
