S&P Global Platts

Platts webinars – Compelling content, timely insights

Nationalism, trade wars and a pandemic make for a heady cocktail. Global commodity markets have been reeling over from demand destruction unlike never before on the world stage and questions abound where we might be headed. Will the demand collapse continue? Will excess supply push prices down to an unthinkable minimum? As we slowly, and cautiously, navigate our way through 2020, how will geopolitical tensions, civil unrest and a down economy continue to rattle commodity markets?

Join this highly informative and engaging panel discussion hosted by S&P Global Platts with three leading geopolitical experts and economists, as we discuss the current state of affairs in commodity markets.

  • Direct and indirect effects from shutdowns and disruptions to global supply chains as economic growth stalls
  • The future of oil – a glimpse into future demand reshaped by COVID-19
  • Exploration of major world developments such US-China trade tensions, Russia-Saudi price war, COVID-19, civil unrest among others at the forefront of driving market volatility
