CRU is the leading provider of analysis, prices and consulting in the mining, metals and fertilizer markets. Our strength comes from our extensive network of industry contacts, our global team of analysts who have a deep understanding of commodity markets, and our unique methodologies.

Quality primary research and robust, transparent methodologies
We do not rely on other people’s models and methodologies. Whether it is forecasting demand, supply and prices, calculating site costs or settling price benchmarks, our work is based on a proprietary foundation, developed over many years.

This means that by understanding a commodity at all levels of the market, our final insight delivers a complete view.  Where customers come to us with a question on a specific trend, issue or event, our consultants and analysts work together to find the answers in a consistent way.  The basis of our responses are transparent.  Our methodology is detailed, documented and transparent.  Where answers depend on uncertain assumptions and data, we will say so.
