About the 2nd AICON Petroleum & Petrochemical Conference 2019

The AICON Petroleum & Petrochemical Conference is one of the leading annual gathering of petroleum & petrochemical industry experts to exchange views and share knowledge, expertise, and experiences.

This mega event attracts officials from all oil majors, technologists, scientists, planners & policymakers, management experts, entrepreneurs, investors & venture capitalists,importers & exporters, service providers & vendors, transporters & customers etc.

India is the third largest consumer of crude oil & petroleum products in the world. According to the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) World Energy Outlook, India’s economy is expected to grow more than five times its current size by 2040, leading to a massive increase in energy demand. This presents the industry with immense growth opportunities.

With the advancement of technologies like Artificial Intelligence & Electric Vehicles and availability of alternate sources of energy, the sector is faced with new challenges.

India’s petrochemical sector is a key pillar of the economy and one of the fastest growing with domestic demand for petrochemicals expected to grow at a compounded annual rate (CAGR) of 8-9 per cent through 2022-2023, according to ratings agency CRISIL.

The key factors that have driven the industry forward include strong GDP growth, changing consumer behaviours and government initiatives.

Despite witnessing healthy growth, the penetration level of petrochemicals in India is far lower than global average. India’s per capita consumption stands at 10kg compared to the global average of 30kg, indicating significant headroom for growth.

Against this backdrop, the 2nd AICON Petroleum & Petrochemical Conferences 2019 is planned on the theme: “The New Opportunities and Challenges for the Indian Petroleum & Petrochemical Industry in the Changing Global Trade Order”

The conference aims to address current challenges and explore areas of growth in petroleum & petrochemical industry.

Through AICON 2019, we look forward to showcase opportunities, exchange knowledge, network with the best in the industry which would go a long way in the betterment of the industry.
