Has recent pricing volatility affected your business? Are you feeling uncertain about the best way to plan for future market shifts?

Join the 7th ICIS Indian Base Oils & Lubricants Conference in Mumbai to hear global and Indian perspectives on the upcoming opportunities and challenges for operating successfully in the region.

April 2020 will see the new Euro VI and Bharat VI legislation come into effect in India. With one year to go, crucial discussions will begin to take place, finalising the preparations for this key industry turning point. The global shift towards lighter viscosity oils across all base oil groups will result in base stock replacement. What will be the impact for the light and heavy duty transport sectors? How will stakeholders further up the value chain adapt? In addition, the electric vehicle sector is growing in the region and is sure to have a direct impact on lubricant demand – the question is, when and how?

With Middle East base oil capacity increasing and competing with South Korean material, the trade flows of base oils and lubricants are changing. Changing worldwide trade agreements and sanctions will also play an important role in shaping the sector. Not forgetting the Indian general election in spring 2019, will the country continue on the same political track or could Prime Minister Modi’s vision for reformed business in India be disrupted?

Don’t miss out on the 2019 event to find answers to your most pressing questions and ensure prosperity for your business amid market volatility.
