What our customers say about the supply and demand database

I have to look at long-term and short-term supply and demand information. We have to have an eye on the immediate future in order to place ourselves strategically. 

Purchasing Manager

I use the annual supply and demand balances to enrich my knowledge as a trader. I need to know at all times where demand is going, what the global expectations are, so it's important to have an idea with regard to what's happening in the long-term. 


When we make long-term marketing studies and also short-term marketing plans we use supply and demand data balances.
