1. Increase in crude oil prices expected: Crude oil prices can rise globally as air passenger demand has increased by 7.6% in 2017, according to International Air Transport Association. As air carriers use jet fuel and the other fuel alternatives are not cost-effective, the fuel for increasing air traffic will be sourced from a middle distillate of crude oil. As a result, jet fuel consumption is expected to increase 64% from 2017 to 2050, according to EIA in its Annual Energy Outlook 2018. This rising crude oil prices can translate into more profit for PETRONAS.
