The ICIS World Base Oils Conference is truly the global industry’s annual meeting place

2015 will be a fundamental year for the industry. Many think it will be the year that defines the future road map for quality, formulations and manufacturing, especially in Europe. 
Additional supply in the market of Group II base oils has already put pressure on Group I in Europe. Even more new supply of higher quality base oils is on the horizon from different regions, which raises some key questions:
  • What is the future of Group I in the new landscape, especially in Europe?
  • How does this impact wax and brightstock?
  • What are the new global balances and trade flows?
  • How will Russia meet these challenges?
  • What does all this mean for finished lubricant manufacturers?
  • Will Europe change formulations?
  • Are there still opportunities for re-refined base oils?
  • What is the additive company perspective of the latest developments?
  • Does this favour the trend towards synthetics?
  • How fungible are base oils, in reality?
The ICIS World Base Oils & Lubricant conference is the acknowledged leader in base oils and lubricants conferences around the world, offering the opportunity to engage with a wide selection of industry personnel. The quality of the information and attendance is what sets us apart. While retaining the global scale and remit of previous years, in 2015 the conference will focus more significantly on Europe as this region reverberates from recent developments and becomes the first ‘battlegound’ of the new market landscape.
