Lithium & Cobalt: Has the EV Bubble Burst?

The meteoric rise in “battery metal” prices tied to the hype around electric vehicle (EV) markets (e.g. lithium and cobalt) has just as quickly turned to a subsequent price crash. With the majority of the EV-driven pricing gains now lost, was this price crash the inevitable bursting of the EV bubble or is it just a speedbump for these EV minerals?

This presentation evaluates the state of the current EV market and how potential future demand scenarios for EVs will impact the potential demand for key EV commodities, lithium and cobalt, including supply and prices.
