A research study challenged the concept that "Peak Oil" will be a supply side phenomenon and predicts that the demand for oil may well peak before 2020 and then fall back to levels significantly below 2010 demand by 2035. "The world is nearing a paradigm shift in oil demand," said Peter Hughes of Ricardo. "The predominant role of oil in the global energy mix is facing an ever greater challenge from a number of emerging trends. Over the past few years a near 'perfect storm' for oil demand has been forming and gathering strength, created by a preoccupation in many quarters about the availability of future supplies."
