Research and Consulting

Commodity Inside provides consulting services on a wide range of commodities and their end-use sectors. We help clients to discover the answers that matter to them most which can be through the entire supply chain from digging the ground to an aerosol bottle on a shop-floor shelf. Our potential clients include world’s leading mining and metals companies, distributors, end-users, financial institutions, associations and governments.

All information acquired during the project is confined to the client only. We work closely with our clients to develop customised solutions and provide practical strategic advice, which can help them in making the right strategic decision.

We have a broad network of contacts around the world allowing us to efficiently access markets and source reliable information in order to provide cost effective solutions to clients of all sizes and profiles.

Our Approach


Consultation and Scoping

This is our first stage and we do not charge at this stage. At this stage, we will closely interact with you to establish the project’s requirements. On the basis of our interactions, we will prepare a research proposal in which we will propose the scope of work. It will also include methodology, project plan and estimated costs.

Research and Consulting

After commissioning we start working on the project and will keep you updated about the progress. We will conduct desk research and field research (if necessary). At this stage we will use various methods for market assessment and forecasts. We will make sure that all our analyses are robust.


Draft Report

On the basis of our robust findings we will start write up. Our editorial and quality control team will go through the draft report before submission. After submission, we will wait for your feedback, upon which we will issue the final report.


We usually present our findings in power point presentation. The analyses are usually supported by maps, graphs, flow charts and tables. The report will also be supported by Excel spreadsheet data and models.
