Demand for battery raw materials is still growing with the continued focus on where the supply of major materials such as lithium, graphite, nickel, cobalt and rare earths will come from as car manufacturers switch to HEVs and EVs. China continues to dominate the battery and NEV space, but in the rest of the world there are a number of projects that are coming on stream and ready to meet growing demand.
As governments have pledged to reduce emissions and clean up polluted city air, (Norway and The Netherlands would like to do so by 2025), there is more pressure on the battery industry and the raw materials supply chain to be cost effective and reliable. Manufacturers are scrutinising raw material requirements and the robust nature of all supply chains, with future demand increases in their sights.
Sourcing materials in increasingly larger volumes is already having an effect, with major price increases this year especially in cobalt. Plus lithium and graphite supplies are under scrutiny too.
Join us in Oslo next March and find out where will new supply for this burgeoning market come from. Are there enough raw materials going forward to service the electric vehicle revolution?
