CRU: Celebrating 50 years in commodity research

Since our foundation in 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 – our office in Beijing opened in 2004 and Singapore in 2018. In 2023, we acquired Exawatt, a strategic consulting and research powerhouse in solar PV, energy storage, and electrification, enhancing our comprehensive insights into energy transition infrastructure.

When facing critical business decisions, you can rely on our first-hand knowledge to give you a complete view of a commodity market. We also provide a tailored Sustainability and Emissions Service offering insights, analysis, data, and expertise to drive meaningful change and achieve your sustainability objectives. You can engage with our experts directly, for the full picture and a personalised response.

CRU – big enough to deliver a high quality service, small enough to care about all of our customers.
