Our market analysis examines supply, demand and prices in all countries and regions. Our multi-commodity coverage across fertilizers and metals allows us to support this analysis with insights on the entire value chain, from fertilizer producers and consumers, to traders, metals producers and industrial markets. We also provide a five-year and 25-year price forecast with details of price movements and drivers.
CRU is a leading provider of global fertilizer prices, such as sulphur and sulphuric acid prices, which are assessed on a weekly basis. Our assessments depend on a robust and transparent methodology, supported by intraday market updates.
Primary research is at the centre of our approach, with teams on regular site visits and in constant contact with a wide network of market participants. Our team of economists adds invaluable depth to our multi-commodity insights and forecasts with views on the wider dynamics of the mining, metal and fertilizer industries.
CRU analysts specialising in sulphur and sulphuric acid are based in London, Mumbai and Beijing. We are available to discuss market developments, prices and any aspect of our methodology with you on the phone, by email or in person.
