We have been assessing the global market of certain commodities for construction on behalf of a major international contractor, including:
- Crude oil
- Gas Oil
The market analysis and the commodity price forecast have been maked by gathering and interpreting information obtained from: (a) direct and indirect researc, (b) proprietary market modelling, (c) direct interviews to operators.
Volumes and prices of the concerned commodities are subject to significant fluctuations, due to a number of factors such as:
- Unbalance of demand and supply
- Stock level
- Scrap availability
- Expectations of the operators, reflected in the financial “future” markets.
Since prospects differ sharply across countries and regions, we have made deeper local investigations on the availability and price of certain commodities, such as cement, timber, bitumen for certain construction sites.
