    FXStreet (Mumbai) - Vitol, the world's largest oil trader, is of the opinion that crude prices will struggle to trade above USD 60/barrel next year as fresh supplies from Iran and Libya are expected to hit the markets.

    Oil demand forecast revised lower

    As per Reuters report, Ian Taylor, the chief executive of Vitol, said his company forecast global oil demand growth in 2016 to reach around 1.35 million barrels per day (bpd), slowing from this year's strong expected growth of 1.7 million bpd.

    As per Vitol, demand from China is likely to increase next year, but it would not be enough to counter the drop in the demand from the rest of the world.
