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. Cobalt demand will exceed supply by 42% in 2025 and 170% in 2030. Supply chain is not just about the procurement and transportation of goods from source to consumer. Ten years later, that number has more than doubled. It’s expected that market demand for the metal will increase to more than 120,000 tonnes per year by 2020 — 60% of which will account for battery production alone.
