FREE WEB SEMINAR: What is driving the battery raw materials markets? - catch-up

Ahead of Fastmarkets’ Battery Materials Europe conference in Amsterdam, we hosted a free web seminar to discuss recent market moves in the battery and EV sector, and what to expect over the coming months.

If you missed it, follow the link below to listen to the free recording.

What is driving the battery raw materials markets?

During the webinar, we discussed: 

  • Cobalt: metal, salts and intermediates prices since Glencore’s Mutanda closure announcement - where next? 
  • Lithium: acting more like a commodity now the market is in oversupply 
  • Nickel: running ahead of the fundamentals 
  • What’s hit demand? Headwinds, electric vehicle subsidies and fallout from the US-China trade war

We also answered questions relating to battery chemistries, cobalt stockpiles and inventories.

If you have any other questions arising from the points covered in the web seminar, please send them to Charlotte Radford at
