Markets for bitumen, or asphalt as it is known in the Americas, are changing. The introduction of the IMO 0.5pc sulphur cap in January 2020 has affected the way bitumen is priced. This, along with changing crude slates, refinery upgrades, site closures and increased pressure on logistics, is redefining bitumen markets globally.

Argus understands bitumen markets on a local and global level. Our coverage includes regional pricing, including truck, rail and seaborne, as well as in-depth news coverage from dedicated teams around the globe, supply and demand fundamentals, and long-term forecasting.
