The availability and performance of raw materials play a decisive role in the production process. In addition to established basic raw materials such as crude oil, natural gas and metals, there are many material innovations that could change entire industries in the future.

With over 30 years of experience in monitoring commodity markets and evaluating market opportunities for material developments, we know what matters.
