Regional insights: other emerging Asia*

We project that by 2035 other emerging Asia’s* energy consumption rises by 62%, with coal contributing the largest increment of growth

Growth in other emerging Asia’s energy use

Share of global energy consumption in 2035

Growth in other emerging Asia’s energy production

  • Other emerging Asia’s energy consumption increases by 62%, while production grows by 15% over the Outlook.
  • Demand for all fossil fuels expands, led by coal (+113%), followed by oil (+33%) and gas (+27%). Renewables (including biofuels) expand by 383%, hydro by 129%, and nuclear by 98%.
  • Other emerging Asia’s energy mix evolves slowly with fossil fuels declining from 92% of demand today to 87% in 2035, compared to a global average of 77% in 2035.
  • Other emerging Asia’s share of global consumption increases to 9% in 2035, from 7% today. This is still less than North America and Europe, and even China and India.
  • Other emerging Asia’s growth in consumption is faster than every other region in the world, except for Africa (+77%).
  • Industrial energy consumption increases by 61%, while the share of energy combusted remains over 75%.
  • Other emerging Asia’s energy production as a share of consumption falls from 87% today to 62% by 2035.
  • Declines in oil production (-34%) and gas production (-37%) are outweighed by increases in coal (+46%), renewables (including biofuels) (+383%), hydro (+129%) and nuclear (+98%).
  • Coal remains the dominant fuel produced in the region with a 51% market share in 2035, up from 40% today.
  • Energy consumption in power generation increases by 84%. Coal remains the dominant fuel source, increasing its market share from 41% today to 49% in 2035.
  • Other emerging Asia’s energy intensity (the amount of energy required per unit of GDP) declines by 31% over the Outlook, less than the overall decline in non-OECD countries (-37%).
