PetrolWorld targets the fuel retail and distribution markets. This includes
the Fuel Retail Service Station Networks, Commercial Fuels (including
Aviation& Marine Fuels), Distribution Logistics and Lubricant’s. It is also
concerned with ancillary services around the fuel service station including
the convenience store.
The PetrolWorld Fuel Retail Conference with supporting Expo, VIP Oil
Company Business Meeting Room and Networking Dinner is about
creating a key “Local & International Meeting Point” for the industry. With
the trade event being held in Kuala Lumpur, there will be a special focus
on the Malaysian, Singaporean and ASEAN fuel retail markets. With
PetrolWorld's geographical reach, we are expecting participation from the
rest of Asia and Middle East and some parts of Africa.
The Asia Pacific region is the most significant developing fuel retail region in the world along with Latin America. The Asia Pacific region demand for energy is likely to rise by 50% and oil by 40% over the coming 2 decades. On the fuel supply side development of the fuel retail network and fuel distribution infrastructure are a huge challenge.
In Malaysia and Singapore fuel retail markets, employing tech-nology (mobile payments), loyalty programme and generating revenues from ancillary services like the c-store are now fundamental to network development. The Philippines has seen a transformation of the fuel retail network in terms of independent players like Eastern Petroleum, Phoenix Petroleum and Seaoil Franchise. In Australia and Myanmar, we have seen the arrival of new global players like Puma Energy and Viva.
China and India have witnessed a revolution in fuel retail network numbers where consolidation remains a key strategy. Companies like Bharat Petroleum have a loyalty programme with +2 million members!
PetrolWorld has covered all these regions over the last 12 years and held forum events in all of the countries mentioned above. The PetrolWorld Conference 2017 will now bring the markets together as a key international meeting point. This in turn will evolve into an important industry platform alongside ASEAN in the future.
PetrolWorld who is organizing the event, is the only established international business media platform operating in Asia since 1998 that is focused on the fuel retail, handling and distribution markets.
