Global Battery Raw Materials
Balancing Supply, Demand & Costs for Battery Component Materials
15-16 January 2020
Understanding the complexities of the global supply chain for battery component materials from the mine to the market is critical to the successful commercialization of EV applications. An examination of the drivers of end user demand with a focus on
major new projects in the pipeline and how that demand will evolve over the near and long term will be presented. This conference will cover the global markets from multiple angles, including advances in mining and processing with an emphasis on sourcing
and cost control strategies by manufacturers with an outlook on the forecasted consumption trends for China, Japan, Korea, Europe, and the United States. Don’t miss your opportunity to network with the major players within the global battery
