Fueled up: Expected rebounds in the price of crude oil are anticipated to improve industry revenue


Petroleum Refining in the US
Operators in the Petroleum Refining industry experienced volatile conditions over the five years to 2019. Rising crude oil prices powered revenue growth until the middle of 2014 due to refiners’ ability to pass costs down the distribution line. Furthermore, low domestic crude oil prices, when compared with international crude oil, bolstered the competitiveness of US petroleum exports. However, since mid-2014, crude oil prices have declined due to slowing international demand and rapid production growth. As a result of these volatile conditions, industry revenue is expected to decline during the current period. Over the five years to 2024, the industry is forecast to rebound, with revenue anticipated to increase during the outlook period. This projected growth can be attributed to increases in fuel prices and consumption, as well as growth in global economic conditions.
