THE SHAMROCK BRIEF – MARCH 2021

Newsletters/ March 12, 2021

INDUSTRY OUTLOOK

Supply-demand continues to dictate base oils markets and prices. Seasonal trends boost demand while supply is limited among all regions and groups. We do not anticipate the situation to improve during March.
Our advice? Volumes offered by refineries are unclear. Buy now to secure the products before being sold out.

IN CASE YOU MISSED

We all miss the face-to-face business events, which were curbed in 2020 by the COVID-19 pandemics. The hopes were that in 2021 we could resume traveling and catch-up with our partners and friends from the industry. The first event of the year for the base oils and lubricants industry, the ICIS World Base Oils & Lubricants Conference, was still virtual.

In case you missed it, we bring you the highlights + info on what other events we plan to attend in the coming month.
