Executive Summary

Cobalt is a hard metallic element found in the Earth's crust only in chemically combined form. Bulk of the cobalt around the world is found as a by product of nickel and cobalt extraction processes consisting of mining and processing ore into concentrate or a semi refined product. It possesses some crucial features such as remarkable energy density, high melting point, etc. Properties like these make Cobalt an ideal element for use in various industrial applications such as aerospace, automotive, electronics and even in the medical domain.

The Cobalt market can be divided on the basis of its use in various end markets such as battery chemicals, super alloys, hard metals, ceramics, catalyst, wear products and rubber additives. The global Cobalt market is expected to increase at high growth rates during the forecast period (2017-2021). The global Cobalt market is supported by various factors such as rise in Lithium ion battery production, superior energy density and spike in production of electric vehicles.

However, evolving battery chemicals and substitution materials are some of the challenges faced by the market. Emerging methods of Cobalt recovery, upsurge in Cobalt development projects, rise in Cobalt prices and increasing use of Cobalt in consumer electronics are some of the latest trends existing in the market.
