The commodity services market has experienced tremendous growth globally in recent years. A commodity refers to goods or services used in trading and exchanged with certain other commodities in the market. Primarily, commodities are used as inputs to manufacturing or processing of several goods or services. Commodity services are type of services that allow purchasers or sellers to meet the counterparty to trade a commodity or commodity related investment items. Traditional examples of commodities include gold, crude oil, zinc, lead, silver, natural gas, and cotton. Nowadays, several brokerage firms offer platforms and commodity exchanges to trade commodities instead of physical delivery of commodities.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • The pandemic’s consequent effect of supply chain shutdowns, owing to economic slowdown has affected both demand and supply of commodities. 
  • Economic slowdown has led to the halt of industrial activities and put a toll on industrial commodities such as copper and zinc and metal prices have resulted in muted demand. 
  • On the other hand, gold prices have risen as buyers have sought security amid instability on the capital markets, thus the market is expected to experience demand for gold securities.
  • However, commodities related to transportations are largely impacted, owing to nationwide lockdowns. 
  • Oil prices have steadily declined and demand is set to fall by a record high in 2020. Historic crash of the U.S. crude oil prices to negative pricing has left many Indian commodity brokerages in losses as they provided leverage to clients for trading. 

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis 

Surge in demand for diversifying a portfolio with advance commodities over traditional securities and higher implied volatility in capital markets has enhanced individuals to approach commodity brokering services in the market. These factors fuel the market growth. However, higher competition, higher liquidity risks, and stringent government regulations are some of the factors that hinder the market growth. 
Conversely, rise in financial awareness and less market penetration in emerging countries are expected to provide lucrative opportunities in the coming years. 
The global commodity services market trends are as follows: 

Introduction of agriculture commodity derivatives to flourish the market:

Various new services in the commodity industry are attracting huge customer base for bigger investments. For instance, in India, National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX), one of the largest online trading platforms based on agriculture, launched Agridextrading in May, 2020, to increase market participation. In addition, this trading platform allows traders, suppliers, and organizations of agricultural producers (FPOs), independent growers, institutional investors, and enterprises to hedge their risks in agricultural commodities in the market. 

Rise in trend of gold and coal commodity derivatives in Asian markets:

Launch of new derivatives for commodities has increased market participation in the commodity trading sector, owing to low cost investments. For instance, in January 2020, China's Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange launched rapeseed meal and thermal coal options in the country to provide hedging instruments in the energy sector. Moreover, in India, National Stock Exchange (NSE) introduced option derivative contracts and raised market participation to hedge the risks over commodities traded in the market.
