7th ICIS Indian Base Oils & Lubricants Conference

Mumbai, India

Last update:

Ensuring prosperity amid market volatility

The Indian Base Oils & Lubricants Conference will be returning to Mumbai for its 7th edition on 9-10 April, and will provide 110+ attendees with 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 and 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?
