CRU delivers independent market analysis on a comprehensive range of global commodities – its 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.

CRU’s network of overseas offices and analysts based in key commodity hubs across Asia, Europe and the Americas, enables deep insight into local markets and gives CRU the capability to forge connections across global supply chains.

Our in-depth market analysis and forecasts – where commodities meet economics – provide you with reliable and authoritative views. CRU’s global teams ensure that you have up-to-date, objective analysis on the latest industry events and market trends. Exawatt's recent integration into the CRU family also amplifies our ability to support global clients with vital insights for decarbonisation efforts.

CRU's cost services help users gain an understanding of industry cost structures, to rank facilities against each other, investigate investment opportunities and conduct accurate strategic planning.

As part of our cost services, stakeholders across the copper industry and beyond are empowered to make informed decisions, optimise costs, and enhance operational efficiency through CRU’s Copper Smelting and Refining Asset Service.
