Company

Here at MRC we understand commodity markets are evolving - they are adapting rapidly as supply lines and value chains merge with future technology and new global challenges threaten the status quo. 

We also understand the need for a simple solution - one that offers the whole picture, not just a price or a dataset. For too long participants in the marketplace have been underserved by costly, cumbersome and outdated solution providers.
We want to change that - our mission is to build the next generation of PRA (Price Reporting Agency), one which fuses price information and data analytics seamlessly to offer unrivalled insight into the global commodity markets.

MRC has been at the forefront of chemicals business intelligence for the past two decades. We are a PRA (Price Reporting Agency) covering multiple commodities across the CIS region and wider global geographic market. Our data-driven solutions, pricing & data analytics combined with local market insight help market participants make committed decisions across commodities markets and, in particular, the commodity value chain.

Our regional expertise has been developed over 20 years supporting our global customer base.. We are more than just a traditional PRA - we provide our global supply chain customers with the market pricing, fundamentals and data analytics they have come to depend on to understand what is really happening in one of the world's most important regional markets.

MRC is on a journey to evolve the traditional PRA model by fusing pricing analysis and data analytics together to provide unparalleled insight for the global commodity market.
