The new energy economy and electrification of the transport industry will likely result in booming demand and supply shortages, while the current market is fraught with supply surpluses and low metal and mineral prices that have not yet found their floors. In recent years the certainty of significant market growth has so far provided price volatility in battery raw material markets. With the full impact of Covid-19 yet to be realized, price uncertainty is likely to continue. Our in-depth report Resourcing the New Energy Economy looks at the factors at play that will impact this industry and the prices of the commodities that supply it.
At Fastmarkets we provide price data for global commodity markets, including prices for lithium, nickel, cobalt, graphite and manganese alongside market news and price forecasts. This information, surfaced through our new platform, provides those buying, selling and trading these commodities with reliable and trusted information to help make informed business decisions, minimize risk and identify future opportunities. Our events, including Lithium Supply & Markets, bring industries together to trade, network and learn the latest developments in the supply chain.
