CRU Group Analysis and Consultancy Services for the Global Mining, Metals and Fertilisers Industries

CRU provides a wide range of services to the global mining, metals, cables and fertilisers industries. Our range of independent analysis, consulting and events services helps industry stakeholders to understand in detail the markets in which they operate, the issues impacting their business and their strategic and commercial opportunities in the years ahead.

The services that we provide are built upon three core strengths – our independence, our multicommodity coverage and our global presence. Our absolute independence allows clients to rely on our impartial and trustworthy view. Our multicommodity coverage ensures we understand both direct and indirect market issues, so that our research is not conducted in isolation. Our global offices and presence allow us to build strong relationships and gather local information from the regions driving our industries now and in the years ahead.

We employ more than 150 experts worldwide, in our offices in London, Beijing, Mumbai, Santiago, Sydney, Sao Paulo, Langley and Pittsburgh.

Strategic support for equipment, consumables, service and infrastructure suppliers

CRU’s broad commodity coverage allows us to carry out single-client work that requires multicommodity input. Our experience includes helping investment funds analyse mining companies with exposure to multiple commodities, and helping mining and metals companies in the process of diversification.

CRU also assists providers to the mining and metals industry by helping them to understand the demand for their services and products. Equipment and service providers value our information and insight to make important strategic decisions. We also work with infrastructure providers to support multi-billion dollar investment decisions.

If you are a supplier of exploration, engineering or contracting services or of infrastructure, equipment and consumables to the mining and metals industry, CRU can help you make informed business decisions. We cover the full value chain in a very wide range of commodities, being the trusted source of information on supply, costs, demand, prices and unparalleled expert insight and analysis.

We cover the iron and steel industries, nickel, cobalt and special steels, copper and wire and cable, aluminium, lead, zinc, tin, precious metals, uranium, fertilisers and many more.
