No! Rest assured that there will be no additional cost for subscribers, even the ones who got access to the new database and/or more industries.
When your subscription renews, you will continue to have access to all data just as you will have right after the change, with no raises in subscription fee. As long as your subscription remains active, your subscription fee will be kept the same.
With this change, a few commodities were reallocated into other industries…so you are not finding it probably because you were looking for it in the wrong industry. Please check how the commodities were reorganized into industries here.
