Price Trends in the Global Resource Market

April 04, 2022

Because of Russia’s brutal war against Ukraine, Fitch lowered its global economic growth forecast to 3.5% in late March.

Nevertheless, as of 4 April 2022, forecasts for energy and metals prices have been significantly improved by Bloomberg and S&P analysts compared to the beginning of the year. Apparently, this was due to increased demand in the vast majority of markets and the completed reformatting of supply chains of sanctioned resources.
