Future Facing Commodities Forum 2024

Virtual Event - Sessions available in APAC, EMEA, & US timezones

No Metals, No Transition

The Year of the Tiger in 2022 was marked by three major paradigm shifts; the return of war to mainland Europe, the energy trilemma, and China’s longer-term economic growth dynamics have been outsized drivers of commodity markets.

As we move into 2023, much uncertainty remains. To make sense of these seismic shifts, and their impact on the key commodities that underpin the energy transition, Future Facing Commodities Forum makes a comeback once again on 14 March. The event focuses on the outlook for those materials that are key to building our electrified future, such as battery and EV materials, lithium, cobalt, nickel, copper, rare earths, cathode & precursor, graphite and more.

By attending this forum, you will explore the latest trends and insights on:

  • Get updated views on our unparalleled and integrated coverage of the battery and electric vehicles value chains
  • Watch as our world-class analysts unpack their detailed analysis of key future facing commodities
  • Understand the implications of our short- and long-term fundamental forecasts




Topics we'll cover include:

  • Paradigm Playbook: Unpacking the impact of war, an energy trilemma and China’s evolving economic landscape
  • Panel Discussion: Technology Watch - Rising trends in Future Facing Commodities
  • Copper: Anchoring electrification
  • Rare Earths: A critical pillar of the energy transition
  • Panel Discussion: Dynamics of the EV value chain
