The Crude Oil Market – Industry Overview and Investment Options


Although currently almost half of the energy consumed in the world is supplied by oil and its by-products, their share of the energy market has actually been declining in recent years. Oil is still in high demand in the transportation industry, because alternatives have not yet proven to be as efficient and practical.

The crude oil industry directly affects the day-to-day lives of a wide range of participants: consumers, producers, traders, hedgers, speculators, investors and policymakers. The impact on the economy and on the investment markets make this a critical area of understanding for anyone who invests, whether directly in crude oil or crude oil producing investments, or in any investment affected by changes in the economy.
