Default Battery metals in 2030: lithium, cobalt, rare earths, graphite, nickel, copper

Really good article from Stockhead's analysis of UBS report.....

Battery metals in 2030: Here’s how lithium, cobalt, rare earths, graphite, nickel and copper could make your kid rich

By 2030, UBS also predict that:

Lithium demand will lift ~1100% from ~400,000 to 4.4 million tonnes
Natural graphite demand grows by 700%
Demand for nickel grows from ~2.6mtpa to 5.8mtpa
Rare earths neodymium (Nd) and praseodymium (Pr) face “a step change” in demand from ~30ktpa towards ~100ktpa
Cobalt demand to expand over the next decade from around 120ktpa to over 400ktpa
And by 2030, copper consumption in EVs — which averages 90kg vs 20kg in ICE vehicles — will represent 4.4mt of copper demand or around 13% of the total.

Default How at risk is the US re critical minerals?


Page 8 has a very revealing table.....

A Federal Strategy to Ensure Secure and Reliable
Supplies of Critical Minerals

The United States imports most critical mineral commodities. Specifically, the United
States is import-reliant (imports are greater than 50 percent of annual consumption)
for 31 of the 35 minerals designated as critical by the Department of the Interior.
2 The
United States does not have any domestic production and relies completely on imports
to supply its demand for 14 critical minerals.
