CRU’s Copper services include market analysis and forecasts, price assessments and cost analysis, all based on robust methodologies for a global view of the copper value chain and related commodities.

Our market analysis brings you insights on copper market fundamentals in a global context, along with price forecasts for five and 25 years. CRU’s multi-commodity expertise provides unparalleled depth in our analysis, from how market dynamics in other commodities affect copper, to coverage of vital and opaque markets such as China.

Our copper prices, which follow the internationally recognised IOSCO principles on high-quality price assessments, cover key premia and discount price indices across Europe, North America and Asia. They are supported by regular updates on how market events are affecting prices.

Our base metals cost service provides granular cost breakdowns for 100% of global supply of copper, nickel, lead and zinc, including detailed Chinese coverage based on mine visits carried out by our teams worldwide.

You also have access to our analysts in London, Beijing, Hong Kong and Santiago for additional, personalised commentary on the copper market.
