The IEA estimated that a reduction of 1% in world gross domestic product growth would reduce oil demand growth by around 690,000 barrels a day.

The IEA, a Paris-based organization that advises governments and corporations on energy trends, raised its forecast in March for global oil demand, saying it would reach 99.3 million barrels a day in 2018 and help keep the market in balance by partly offsetting a surge in U.S. shale production.
China-U.S. Trade Dispute Could Knock Oil Demand, Says IEA
The world's robust appetite for oil could be significantly dented by the escalating trade dispute between the U.S. and China, the International Energy Agency warned Friday.
In its closely watched monthly oil market report, the IEA said it continued to expect global oil demand to grow by 1.5 million barrels a day in 2018, but cautioned that potential U.S. and Chinese trade tariffs posed a "downward risk" to the forecast.
"Oil demand would suffer the direct impact of lower bunker consumption and lower inland transportation of traded goods, reducing fuel oil and diesel use," the report noted.
