2Global passenger transport activity 2000 – 2050Index of pkm (2000 = 100) High: European saturation levels in BRICs Low: Japanese saturation levels in BRICsSource: International Transport Forum calculations using IEA MoMo version 2011.
3Global passenger transport activity 2000-2050• Meeting the needs of 9 billion people• Outlook fraught with uncertainty over such a long period• Global passenger-km increase 3-4 times by 2050• Outside OECD pkm could increse 5 or 6 fold• Range is not measure of uncertainty but illustrates potential impact of modest changes in assumptions• Low scenario – IEA base case in WEO 2008, Emerging economies reach Japanese levels of car ownership and use levels• High scenario: European saturation levels• Share of car trips seems set to rise from <10% in China to >50%
4Aviation• Medium term in line with IEA and IATA• Longer term:• Low scenario lower than IATA especially in OECD countries• High OECD continues to grow non-OECD accelerates with deregulation and open skies• High is still much lower than aircraft makers forecasts
5Global freight transport activity, 2000 - 2050Index of tkm (2000 = 100) High: Constant freight intensity Low: Dematerialisation of growth Source: International Transport Forum calculations using IEA MoMo version 2011.
6Freight Transport Activity 2000-2050• Global freight tonne-km to rise 2.5 – 3.5 times by 2050• Low scenario: Dematerialisation of growth, eg shift to services• High scenario: GDP growth continues at 2005 freight intensity levels• Developing countries may be embarking on a relatively freight intensive growth path, so full upside risk not reflected in graph
7High Scenarios• Best interpreted as where demand would like to go• Realistic? Policy intervention?• Eg fast urbanisation might slow growth of car ownership and use• High energy prices would suppress• But high scenarios far from impossible

13Global CO2 emissions from transport• CO2 emissions rise less quickly than mobility through fuel economy improvement• Increase 2.5 to 3 times

18Peak travel?• Evidence of reduced responsiveness of car and light truck travel to increasing incomes in advanced economies• As the effect of income on travel (vkm) diminishes, it leaves a larger role to other determinants such as fuel prices, urbanisation, ageing and network management• But economic cycle visible in US in particular• And income distribution may have a large role. Income growth in last decade concentrated on wealthiest 10%. Incomes decreased in many of the lower deciles.
19Peak travel?• High income households are less responsive due to saturation, low income households very responsive• Whether or not growing income translates into more driving (VMT) thus also depends on the distribution of income growth• Uncertainty over future income likely to play a role in medium term• Demographics becoming increasingly important• These factors have strong implications for the projection of long run transport demand
