We help the mining and projects industry plan for the future

Scenario Planning for COVID-19 and 

its impact on Southern Africa's

Core Commodities

Molecules Bio

"Scenario planning is not a tool for making predictions. The future remains as unpredictable as ever. Rather, it is a tool for better decision making. The measure of good scenario planning is whether we made a better decision as a result of having considered the possible scenarios."  


In light of the COVID-19 infection rapidly wreaking havoc on both public health & the global economy, Afriforesight  is offering a series of highly informative web presentations.

We will be exploring various future scenarios & their impact on each of SA’s core commodities, where we will assess:

  • Commodity prices, with forecasts of the next 18-months

  • Global and local supply, with forecasts and analyses of the major producers

  • Global demand, with forecasts and analyses of the major demand drivers

We consider key economic drivers, inflation, interest rates, and exchange rates, covering all major regions.

Commodity Forecasts

We have niche skills in commodities that are not usually forecasted such as manganese, chrome, ferrochrome, palladium and rhodium
