Cathode and precursor: 5 things to look for in 2022
1 minute read
What's inside this year's report?
Looking back, 2021 was an exciting year characterised by far more than expected demand growth from the electric vehicle (EV) sector, but also a worrying year with a looming raw materials shortage. We also saw a significant boom in use of LFP in EV applications, and considerable LFP cathode investment from the beginning of 2021.
A few new cathode and precursor projects were announced in countries outside Asia, driven by governments’ local supply chain ambitions, decarbonisation goals and value chain extension.
Read Cathode and precursor: 5 things to look for in 2022 for our take on themes including:
- Lithium chemical price rises pose a risk to the electric vehicle industry
- Progress of LFP projects from new entrants will be worthy of attention
- Cathode and precursor materials prices set to rise
- Sector to attract more investment from electric vehicle makers
- Battery recycling business and precursor and cathode industry to be more closely connected
