Commodity Price Development

Survey question: How do you predict commodity prices (oil, gas, minerals) will fare in the year ahead?

Slightly more than a half of respondents (51.5%) predict price improvements in the year ahead, though the expectation is that any improvements will be moderate, with a return to prices seen during the commodity boom years of the 2000s a long way off. The implication here is that, much like oil prices specifically, the adjustment to a “new normal” of lower prices has now taken the place of any expectations of a quick rebound. This is reinforced by the 29.3% of those surveyed expect that prices are unlikely to change much over the course of 2017.
