The pandemic has had a long-term impact on raw material availability, and the industry is seeing a ‘de-globalisation’ of market activities. There are supply chain hurdles, regardless of how you are transporting goods, and the commercial impact of shipment disruptions must be factored into overall strategies. Plus, incorporating sustainability into everything you do provides a layer of complexity.

The business of base oils and lubricants is challenging, but the community is stronger together.

The ICIS World Base Oils and Lubricants Conference has been the meeting place for the industry for over 25 years. 2023 will continue to provide you with the largest gathering of the base oils and lubricants community.

Attendees can expect unparalleled networking opportunities with people from across the value chain. Like this year the networking lounge will be a constant stream of industry faces, giving you time to make connections that you cannot get anywhere else.

With over 150 years of market reporting, ICIS is a trusted source for industry insight and information. Supporting the topics of supply and demand, logistics, and sustainability, attendees can expect thought-leading content from ICIS and industry experts, a senior-level audience, and a world-class experience.
