With new capacity coming online over the past year, and a shift in base oil groups and lubricant grades, the region is continuing to cement itself as a major player in the global market. As we move forward, and the Middle East undergoes a period of market transformation and commercial development, how can the region ensure it keeps hold of this strategic lead?

Alongside this, there is a complex mixture of factors impacting dynamics. Fuelling these changes are the drive for quality, the desire to innovate and the need to keep current with product offerings. With so many elements influencing business strategies for the region, the need for an up-to-date outlook and insight is essential in order to maintain commercial advantage in an evolving market.

As the biggest event in the region for the base oils community with over 370 delegates from 195 companies attending in 2017, the ICIS Middle Eastern Base Oils & Lubricants Conference provides the ultimate networking platform and content sharing opportunity that the region has to offer. View the pre-conference symposium and conference agendas to see the topics being covered.
