MINING, METALS AND FERTILIZERS

CRU's reputation with customers across mining, metals and fertilizers is for integrity, reliability, independence and authority.

CRU's insights are built on a twin commitment to quality primary research and robust, transparent methodologies. You can rely on our work - our data, our views, our models - because we have built them ourselves, from the ground up, since our foundation in 1969.

The requirement for exclusive, first-hand knowledge has driven us to invest in a global team of analysts, the key to gaining a real understanding of critical, hard-to-reach markets such as China.

CRU's people - whether delivering market outlooks, price assessments, cost analysis or consulting - focus on helping customers to make important business decisions. Across a comprehensive range of commodities, we strive to provide customers with the best service and the closest contact - flexible, personal and responsive.

CRU - big enough to deliver a high quality service, small enough to care about all of our customers.
