Will cheaper shipping help to keep prices of recycled materials high?
Understanding Recycling Insights
Recycling Insights is a data science service for the recycling industry.
But what does that mean for your recycling and waste management company?
Recycling Insights contains a wide range of economic data including:
- Energy prices
- Retail data
- Shipping indices
- Manufacturing output data
- Foreign Exchange
- And much more.
Our artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning takes this data, along with market prices for paper, plastics and metals, and analyses and understands what is likely to have most impact on the market in coming weeks. It is constantly learning and improving. So while we are confident our forecast prices for OCC, PET, HDPE, LDPE and Dry Bright Wire are pretty accurate, that accuracy will only get better over time.
Compare economic data to prices
As you can see above, there seems to be a strong correlation between electricity prices and OCC values. This helps to enhance your expertise, so when you are making decisions on trading, it is backed up by economic data. In fact, our AI tells you the correlations that are strongest for the materials you trade, and even includes pre-Covid and Covid period correlations.
Our daily dashboards give you everything you need in one place. See current market prices for key grades, our forecast prices, shipping, our market sentiment guide, news and access to key economic data. These dashboards are available at all subscription levels* and are available for paper and plastics.
*Small trader subscription only allows for access to either paper or plastic dashboard.
