Global Commodity Forecast

Commodities are not mined, manufactured, bought and sold in a vacuum. Rather they are intricately woven into the broader economic story, closely tied to industrial outputs, investments and megatrends such as energy transition. At Oxford Economics, we embrace this broader perspective in our approach to commodity forecasting.
