Crude Oil is one of the most important sources of energy for a country. The prices of crude oil depend on many factors like Supply restrictions by Oil producing nations, demand for oil, uncertainties like war in the middle east and also the stability of US Dollar, in which crude oil is priced. The price fluctuations of crude oil affect the cost structure of the companies in the whole value chain of the crude oil. Some companies might be highly sensitive to these changes while others can withstand the same. The sensitivity here means the effect of the crude oil price fluctuations on the companies cost structure and in turn on its profitability. This project is about doing the sensitivity analysis of the industry selected, to crude oil price fluctuations. The Industry selected for analysis is ?Fertilizer Industry?.
