CRU's Cobalt Market Outlook 2016, published on 18th August 2016, Senior Consultant Dr Edward Spencer writes "the refined cobalt market will fall into a 3,000 tonne deficit this year following seven years of overcapacity and oversupply.  CRU anticipates prices to increase onward into 2017 as global demand for refined cobalt exceeds the 100 kt mark and mine and refined supply tightens."

To help you and your colleagues examine how the cobalt industry will evolve through the next 10 years and plan your business strategy optimally, we are delighted to introduce to you the new 2016 edition of CRU's Cobalt Market Outlook as well as quarterly Cobalt Market Updates and CRU Insights.

The new 2016 edition includes key coverage, such as:

  • 100% of mine production estimates by operation, so you can see where units come from and how they are processed, and review how supply will develop at individual operations
  • Distinction between the metallurgical and non-metallurgical refined market balance, so you can identify the different trends between the markets for metal and raw materials and understand benchmark price dynamics
