Asphalt Market: Emergence of New Bitumen Refinery Plants
In the past few years, there have been remarkable developments in the asphalt industry and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Many new bitumen refineries have been established, and many are in the pipeline. Sohar Asphalt, an Oman-registered company, announced the physical construction of the bitumen refinery after obtaining the all-important environmental clearance from the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs (MECA). Similarly, many other agreements were signed for the establishment of new bitumen refinery plants in 2016-2017. This clearly indicates that the demand for asphalt is high, and vendors are increasing their investments to cater to this high demand,.
