Cobalt: 5 things to look for in 2023

Report summary

2022 was eventful for cobalt, as we anticipated at the beginning of the year. It was very much a year of two halves with prices experiencing a rollercoaster ride. The cobalt market was marked by a shift in fundamentals, supply chain disruptions and price divergences across products and geographies. We expect 2023 to be a year of consolidation with a mixed bag of risks and opportunities for the industry.
