The 2018 conference has taken place and attracted a record 680 delegates from 54 countries. What was the focus of the debate and discussion? 

Base oils and lubricants have been markets in transition for some time, and some would argue, in a constant state of evolution. However, there are new long term challenges on the horizon – so-called ‘disruptive technologies’ - which will prospectively lead to a world of declining lubricant demand. How can the industry adapt to this changing environment? 

Electric, hybrid, autonomous and connected vehicles, which seemed far into the future only a short time ago, are arriving quicker than we ever could have thought. There are other major developments in industry digitization with ‘Smart Plants’ and ‘The Internet of Things’. Are these threats - or can they be opportunities? 

The ICIS Word Base Oils & Lubricants Conference is a unique forum where relevant stakeholders from across the globe and from different parts of the lube value chains can come together and discuss areas of common interest. Alongside the long view of 5, 10, 15 years from now, you will also gain valuable current market intelligence regarding the latest trends and developments impacting the industry and supply/demand balances.
