It is shown that the prices of aluminum, cadmium, copper, iron, lead, nickel, and zinc are at historic highs, that world stocks are at (or near) historic lows, and that China’s consumption of these metals had increased substantially, making it the world’s leading consumer of these metals.

Why Invest In Cobalt?
The price of cobalt has shot up exponentially in the recent past as demand for batteries also rose. Between 2016 and 2018, the metal’s price rose $20,000.
Currently global demand stands at 110,000 metric tons per year, but that could multiply by 30 times by 2030. The EV market, which is heavily reliant on lithium and cobalt, will drive demand in the coming decades.
Many governments around the world have been pushing their car companies and users to switch to EVs, and it appears only a matter of time before they replace combustion engines on the road.
This will translate into millions of li-ion batteries that use significant amounts of cobalt.
