Riding on the success of the previous conference, which attracter more than 100 delegates from over 30 companies, this conference will provide continuing insights into technological advances, challenges and the way forward for the Indian Bitumen market.

The Indian bitumen market this past year has been subjected to a roller-coaster ride with crude oil prices and shrinking refinery margins. Crude oil prices tripled in 2003-07, spiked in 2008, and collapsed in the same year. Now crude prices are creeping up again, despite the recession, surplus capacity and high crude stocks. This conference will bring together key market participants to address the critical issues affecting their bitumen business bottom line and determine what the impact will be on their economies and on their budgets for infrastructure development.

It will also present a perspective of the bitumen industry in India and the way forward while discussing the outlook on expansion of the airport sector, the road construction industry (including rural and urban) and the challenges in the highway construction sector.
