In this report, Technavio highlights the discovery of primary cobalt mines as one of the key emerging trends in the global cobalt sulfate market:
Global cobalt sulfate market: Discovery of primary cobalt mines
New cobalt mines are being discovered to meet the low supply of cobalt. With the increasing demand for EVs and energy storage devices, the demand for nickel, cobalt, and aluminum lithium-ion battery is increasing. This is leading to a higher demand for cobalt. However, the prices of cobalt have been increasing owing to the low supply of the metal. Many mining firms in Canada have identified new sources of cobalt and many primary cobalt projects are gaining attention. Similarly, eCobalt is developing the Idaho Cobalt Project, which is the only advanced primary cobalt development project in the US.
“Another trend is the recycling and cobalt recovery to meet the increasing demand for cobalt. Manufacturers are looking for different methods to meet the growing demand for cobalt and one such emerging technology is electrowin. It is one of the best ways of recovering cobalt from low-concentration solutions,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
