Commodity Dealing and Brokerage in the US

Regardless of bull or bear markets, the industry has received a boost from the increased use of commodities. Traditionally used as a hedge against inflation, commodities have become a valuable diversification tool. Use of commodities has increased because of strong returns generated by speculators. These strong returns and diversification benefits have led to an increase in the use of commodities in pension funds and hedge funds. In addition, the introduction of commodity exchange-traded funds has helped industry revenue as another form of commission.

This industry includes firms and individuals that trade commodity derivatives. Commodity derivatives, such as futures, forwards, swaps and options, are financial securities that offer returns based on the return of an underlying commodity, such as agricultural products, energy resources and foreign currency. Brokers execute buyers’ orders by arranging transactions on a commission or transaction-fee basis, while dealers buy and sell derivatives on their own accounts for profit.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
