CRU offers unrivalled business intelligence on the global metals, mining and fertilizer industries through market analysis, price assessments, consultancy and events. Since 1969, we have consistently invested in primary research and robust methodologies, and developed expert teams in key locations worldwide, including in hard-to-reach markets such as China. CRU employs over 290 experts and has more than 11 offices around the world, in Europe, the Americas, China, Asia and Australia.  When facing critical business decisions, you can rely on our first-hand and independent knowledge to give you a complete view of a commodity market:

CRU's Fertilizer Capabilities:

CRU provides a complete view of the fertilizer industry through market analysis and forecasts, market-leading price assessments and comprehensive cost services, all driven by a global team of analysts. 

The CRU Fertilizer teams’ unrivalled understanding across the fertilizer supply chain, spanning pit to port to field, provides a deep knowledge of the value chain. Recently the team's research focus has shifted to the evolution of green and blue ammonia - this research will be leveraged in a new Green Ammonia Market Outlook.  

Based in Beijing, Hong Kong, London, Mumbai, Pittsburgh, Santiago, Shanghai and Sydney, many of CRU’s fertilizer experts have worked inside the industry and they offer invaluable local and global market intelligence. We provide the most extensive coverage and holistic view of the market to help our customers make critical business decisions.

CRU Events:

CRU Events’ core mission is to share knowledge, spark debate and facilitate networking within your community. Our knowledge of the sectors we serve, combined with our trusted market relationships, enables us to deliver valuable programmes, driven by topical themes addressed by the thought leaders in your industry.

We have reinvented our events model to a virtual format, however, the only "virtual" element of the Conference is the venue: it still offers real insight, real networking, and real business opportunities. And at a reduced cost to attend and no travel and accommodation costs - real value.

CRU Sustainability:

CRU’s new Sustainability division is well positioned to help companies on their sustainability journey. Using our global footprint, our closeness to the market, on-the-ground experience and our vast network of contacts, we have built a reputation as an independent authority in the industry. We cover all the angles when connecting policy, data and decisions. 

At the heart of CRU Sustainability are data-led insights. Sustainability objectives now command almost universal assent but without accurate data, it is difficult to quantify and evaluate commitments. CRU Sustainability provides such systematic and comparative data on a range of metrics.

CRU Sustainability will have four focus areas: climate policy and regulation, carbon emissions and markets; the clean energy transition; and the circular economy.
