Issue 63: September 2014 Lubes'n'Greases Magazine
Europe, Middle East and Africa
ACEA 2014 is coming, with widely anticipated revisions for performance in the presence of biofuels. Itís time to get prepared.
The grease market is grappling with two opposing trends. Demand is increasing because of industrial and vehicle growth in developing countries, but it is decreasing due to a shift to superior grades that provide longer life.
Synthetic lubricant demand is expected to grow more than 3 percent per year in Europe and by more than 4 percent per year in Africa and the Middle East from 2013 to 2023.
Economic and political turmoil in Ukraine, Turkey and Romania could force the regionís small to mid-size blenders to look elsewhere for new opportunities.
Lubes'n'Greases Europe-Middle East-Africa is the first independent regional business magazine for and about the lubricants, base oil, additives and lube packaging industries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It reports on marketing and technology trends, raw material supplies, regulations and OEM specifications, and the challenges faced by end users of lubes and greases and the solutions that meet their needs. Every issue includes breaking news, in-depth features and informed opinions.
LNG EMEA has separate content from its sister magazine, Lubes'n'Greases, but offers the same reliable, unbiased and vital reporting each month.
The print edition is free to qualified subscribers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and is available on a paid-subscription basis elsewhere. The digital edition, an exact replica of the print magazine, is free to qualified subscribers worldwide.
Print and digital subscribers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa will receive the Base Stock Guide for Europe, the Middle East and Africa in July.
