Technology

The technology used by the Demand Tracker depends on the type of asset being analyzed. In the case of steel mills, thermal imagery is used to monitor the heat emitted by blast furnaces, and these signals are used to infer the production rate of a steel mill. The resulting time series can be aggregated in order to provide a leading indicator of demand for iron ore and metallurgical coal.
