About cobalt
Cobalt is a chemical element obtained in combination with other elements in minerals such as skutterudite (a
cobalt-nickel arsenide), carrollite (a copper-cobalt-(nickel) sulfide), and asbolane (a nickel-cobalt-manganese
oxide). Cobalt is obtained from three main ore deposits: sediment-hosted stratiform copper deposits, magmatic
nickel sulfide deposits, and nickel laterite deposits. It is generally processed as a byproduct of processed nickel and
copper ores. Cobalt and its alloys find application in numerous industries such as battery chemicals, superalloys,
defense, and catalysts.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global cobalt market to grow at a CAGR of 9.19% over the period 2014-2019.
