The global minor metals industry is grappling with painful oversupply, but lithium carbonate has bucked the trend to register a strong performance on support from the Li-ion battery sector. The booming battery industry is also likely to lift future consumption of manganese, cobalt and nickel while the changing dynamics for battery chemistry, in line with the expansion of the lithium-ion battery industry, may also spark new metal demand.
The battery metals market remains upbeat, but the sustainability of a market characterised by sharply rising prices and tight supplies is unclear. Argus returns to Beijing on 6-8 September 2016 with a dedicated Battery Metals Conference as part of our China Metals Week 2016. Join the conference to uncover the true drivers and trends of the market, meet with your peers and make informed business decisions that will lay the foundations for continued success in the coming years.
