The second issue of the "Dai One Piece Shimbun" promotional publication printed an interview with One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda on Wednesday. In the interview, Oda states that he has finished around 65% of the manga. He adds that he cannot do any more long stories besides One Piece.
Oda previously mentioned in a previous issue of the One Piece Shimbun in 2012 that he had finished around 60% of the story.

Hmmm... so it took him 15 years to reach 60% mark, but after 4 more years, it's only 65% done? That's weird.

In any case, there's probably about 10 more years of One Piece left.
Then again, 10-15yrs was my prediction back in 2007-8, so who knows?

I think the reason is because of the pacing. Some arcs in real time take less time to create than others. For example, one of the most recent arcs Dressrosa had 102 chapters and took about 2 years in real time, however, in the One Piece world it was only a day, maybe three days at most (not 100% sure). I personally think the biggest fault with One Piece is its pacing. Oda really likes to draw things out and make the story last as long as it can. There were definitely a good portion of chapters in the Dressrosa arc that I thought were very necessary and interesting, however, at least 10 (probably more if I actually took the time to examine them) that I think could be removed without hindering the story at all, and would even help people to enjoy the story more. Then of course there are arcs like Sabaody, followed by Amazon Lily, Impel Down, and Marineford where the pace improves dramatically (hence the increase in sales and overall audience satisfaction). Although if you're reading volume to volume, I do think that having more chapters that aren't completely necessary isn't such a bad thing, however, when you're looking at the bigger picture, it does still put a bit of a dent in the overall story. With that said, however, sometimes it's better to have a slower pace and longer arcs so that the shorter arcs are more enjoyable and there is a greater emotional buildup that leads to a profound conclusion.

That math, oh boy. I lost interest after the time jump and stopped shorty after ch. 800, despite reading since 2001. My math gave me around 128 volumes total. Toei must be happy too. You milk that cow dead SJ!

One Piece is further the 3rd biggest comic ever and "only" sold 80 mil. copies less than Batman, who is the 2nd bestselling comic. 380 vs 460-ish. It will beat him within this decade, due to the recent sales explosion. Superman is the champion @ 600+ mil.
One Piece is only 19 years old and "only" behind the 2 Golden Age giants, who used to be official WW2 propaganda. This growth is unprecedented in the comic world! I wonder how the Hollywood version will look like... roll .
Why DC sold so many comics:

Thats extremely intresting!!! you can even add the notion that where Superman and Batman are episodic (recurrent) stories, One piece mantains a steady and open world building, i can only be in awe of Oda-sensei's brilliant storytelling skills!

One Piece Manga Creator Eiichiro Oda: I Want to End Story in 5 Years:

Quote
Manga creator Eiichiro Oda reported in a YouTube video posted on Friday that he "wants to end [the One Piece story] in five years." Oda spoke during a video visit to his home by popular YouTubers Fischer's. The video commemorates the release of the One Piece Stampede film.

Fischer's member Ndaho asked Oda, "About how long will One Piece's [entire story] keep going?" Oda responded, "I want to end it in five years."
Oda revealed during his appearance on Fuji TV's Honma dekka!? program in January that the ending of the manga is "near" and that the manga will have "just over 100 volumes." Oda noted that he had thought about the manga's ending since he was still in college. In addition, the show's host Sanma Akashiya also asked Oda what would happen if a fan managed to guess the same ending that Oda is writing. Oda replied that he would change the ending. [After Oda's January statement, OnePiece.com and V Jump columnist Greg Werner cautioned fans against equating Oda's estimates of the story's progress to precise timeframes.]

Oda said in an interview in July 2016 that he had finished around 65% of the manga.

Edit: @pyonk Your highlighted quote is also in mine. With a functioning link and attribution to who said the other remark. ANN is seemingly better at reporting news than Crunchyroll.

During the interview, Oda commented that he wished to end the manga within the next 5 years when asked by a member of the collective how much longer the manga would run.

This latest statement is not meant to be taken as a timeline of how close the manga is to concluding, rather the statement expresses Oda's personal desire to see the manga concluded in the near future, without specific timelines or milestones confirmed.
