Corporate report data is not readily available before 2006. However, as we look at the Colgate orbit chart, it should spark a question of “If IT standardization is the answer for managing costs and inventory, why is Colgate at the same level in 2015 that they were in 2006?”

Big Tech and Auto Battle for the World’s Cobalt Resources

Elementum

In 2006, lithium-ion batteries consumed only 20% of the global cobalt supply. However, as standards for sourcing become more strict, these big players may lose business if they fail to provide visibility into their supply chains. Cobalt demand will exceed supply by 42% in 2025 and 170% in 2030. It’s estimated that locating enough new sources to meet these demand spikes would take about 30 years — a long-term solution for a short-term need.
