Strong global economic growth over the past decade has seen the industrialization and rise of many developing nations, leading to increased need in energy and commodities to support growth. Constraints on available capacity due to historical underinvestment in infrastructures however, have resulted in significant price inflations. Speculative investments from both corporations and private investors have further compounded the volatility of this industry.
