Cobalt oxides and sulphates are consumed in an array of battery precursors and cathodes, while cobalt fine powder is used as an additive in some battery applications. Batteries now comprise the main end-use for cobalt, accounting for 59% of demand in 2019, up from 41% in 2013. Furthermore, demand from the sector is expected to enjoy double-digit growth over the coming decade owing to the anticipated demand for cobalt in various cathode formulations, especially those used in EVs.
