Battery metals in focus

Electromobility is on the triumphant march. Battery metals such as nickel and cobalt are in demand like never before.

Urgently needed in the batteries are nickel and cobalt. According to experts from Wood Mackenzie, the demand for nickel will double by 2040. From 2.4 million tons in 2020, nickel consumption is expected to increase to 4.9 million tons. If demand from the electromobility industry now accounts for around seven percent, it is expected to rise to around 30 percent in the next 20 years. The stainless-steel market is still responsible for around 70 percent of nickel demand, but by 2040 this figure will fall to around 53 percent.

Climate targets and government subsidies are responsible for more and more car buyers switching to battery-powered vehicles. While around three million of these were sold last year, it is forecast that there will be an estimated 49 million by 2040. After a lower demand for nickel in the Corona year 2020, there is already an increasing demand.

Alongside nickel and lithium, cobalt is an important raw material for electromobility. Currently, a ton of cobalt costs around 52,000 US dollars. Industry experts expect prices to continue to rise in the coming months, albeit not as dynamically as recently. This can be seen from the forward contract curve. From an investor's point of view, cobalt should not be overshadowed by lithium, because in terms of its importance for electromobility it is in no way inferior to lithium. Around 42 per cent of global cobalt demand comes from the battery industry and around two per cent from the catalytic converter sector.

Nickel and cobalt are owned, for example, by the Canada Nickel Company - Its flagship project is the Crawford nickel-cobalt project in Ontario. 
Cobalt also exists at Mawson Gold's - - Rajapalot gold-cobalt project in Finland. In addition, Mawson Gold owns gold properties in Australia.
