During the NBI Expo the countries' top opportunties within the broad spectrum of commodities are highlighted, while network options for direct trade, setting up supply chains and distribution channels are created on the floor.
General Sector Information
For investors' purposes there are currently about 50 major commodity markets worldwide that facilitate investment trade in nearly 100 primary commodities.
Commodities are split into two types: hard and soft commodities. Hard commodities are typically natural resources that must be mined or extracted (gold, rubber, oil, etc.), whereas soft commodities are agricultural products or livestock (corn, wheat, coffee, sugar, soybeans, pork, etc.).
Today’s commodity markets stem from the trading of agricultural products. In the nineteenth century, wheat, corn, cattle and pigs were traded. Other foods were only recently added in most markets. To establish a commodity market there must be a wide consensus on why the product is useful and for what purpose. A commodity market is a physical or virtual marketplace for buying, selling and trading raw or primary products.
Different countries are promoting their Commodities sector during the NBI Expo.
