Commodities face green wave in 2020
Increasing global demand for cleaner energy is set to impact commodity prices in 2020, according to ANZ Research, with some markets set for a boost and others facing new pressures.
In crude oil, tighter global emission rules are likely to weigh on trading, particularly with the implementation of new International Maritime Organisation fuel regulations in January.
The shift to low-sulphur fuel in shipping should see crude consumption increase, while stronger demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) should also emerge.
