Commodities Data

World Bureau of Metals Statistics (WBMS)

An overview of World Bureau of Metals Statistics (WBMS) 

On the 9th June 2022, Refinitiv acquired World Bureau of Metal Statistics (WBMS), bringing more than 50 years of highly valuable data to Eikon for the first time. Eikon users will now receive supply, demand and trade flow data on industrial metals to support their trading decisions and research needs, while WBMS customers will gain access to our broad metals and macro-economic data, news and analytics.

Across 2022, Refinitiv will onboard WBMS data onto Eikon, with the goal of integrating with Refinitiv’s other metals data sets and analytical tools in 2023.

Metals data is becoming increasingly important for customers, as the mining industry begins to supply more copper, cobalt and nickel to enable the energy transition from fossil fuels to clean power. WBMS complements Refinitiv’s mine data, ESG metrics and pricing, enabling Refinitiv to offer its customers a broad dataset at this important inflexion point.
