Electrification Supercycle Will Increase the Demand for Nickel and Cobalt

The demand for metals—such as lithium, cobalt and nickel—means that there is only one way to feed an electrifying world: higher prices. Key to the transition from internal combustion engine vehicles to electric vehicles(EV) is the development of the lithium-ion battery. Within each of these batteries, nickel and cobalt are key components that will be needed in increasing quantities.

Collin Kettell, CEO of Palisade Global, shares with us why there is huge investment potential in these battery metals and the factors that are likely to push their prices higher in the near future.
