As markets and economies change at a stunning pace, industry players need to adapt and rework their approach to not just business fundamentals, but also to recreate competitive advantage. The game changers of yesterday may simply not be relevant in the near future.

In the context of marine fuels, in addition to the impact of the global economy energy markets, the industry is also keeping a close watch on the possibility of implementing the 0.5% global sulphur cap in 2020. In addition, the slew of initiatives launched by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore illustrate just how important it is for the players of the marine fuel industry to be on the front foot.
