With the term raw materials we indicate that group of materials which are the basis for the construction of objects and goods. They are therefore the elements through which all the objects are produced that are then commonly used.
Since man has existed, raw materials have been the main trading market. The situation has not changed over time, since the price of these will depend on the whole price of production.
In fact, if the raw material for the current year has a higher cost, the cost of the good or finished product will also rise. For this reason, indices relating to commodities are held in high regard by traders.
