Cobalt is a significant by-product obtained from the mining of nickel and copper ores. It is refined first before it is made available in the market. These nickel and copper mining sites are majorly found in the Democratic Republic of Congo, China, Russia, Canada, and Australia, among others. The Democratic Republic of the Congo one of the largest producers of cobalt globally. China is a major consumer of the metal. It is also a significant manufacturer of the metal. The cobalt industry in China is likely to further grow due to the rising consumption of the metal as a battery material.
The increased demand for new energy vehicle-use batteries is further aiding the growth of the cobalt industry, globally. Batteries have become an increasingly prominent end-use for cobalt, which has significantly increased recently. Batteries account for the largest application sector, with 41% of cobalt used in battery production. Alloys and tool metals, together, account for around one-fourth of the product’s applications.
Cobalt is a bright, fragile chemical material used to create powerful alloys, permanent magnets, and hard metals with corrosion and thermal resistance. It is obtained as a by-product of copper and nickel mining. The silver-coloured metal is fragile and possesses a high melting point. It is preferred for its strength and wear resistance at high temperatures.

Cobalt is an extremely important and rare chemical element. With the growth in consumer electronics industry, the demand for rechargeable batteries is also growing, thus, supporting the growth of the global cobalt industry. Cobalt is a major chemical used for the production of batteries and, thus, the demand growth for the metal is aided by the rising demand for rechargeable batteries. Urbanisation and globalisation, along with the rising disposable incomes, are other factors guiding the growing demand for the latest gadgets like laptops, mobiles, smartwatches, etc. This further boosts the growth of the cobalt industry. The rise in gadget usage, especially among the youth, is also driving the growth of the industry.
The cobalt industry is also aided by the rising demand for the metal in the production of high-speed cutting tools for cutting products like diamonds, which are extremely hard. Electric vehicles are emerging as another significant driving factor for the rising cobalt demand. Electric vehicles, which are powered on batteries, also use cobalt-based batteries. Thus, the robust growth of the electric vehicles industry, globally, is expected to drive the cobalt industry growth in the forecast period. The rising population and the increasing penetration of consumer electronics in emerging economies are expected to act as additional catalysts for the industry growth in the coming years.
