Media Organization


In the period of post-crisis, the global inflationary pressure increases. As cobalt concentrates price holds high on the back of tight supply while the competition in the downstream market becomes more fierce, Chinese cobalt manufacturers bear too much pressure. How can they adjust product structure and eliminate backward production capacity? What they can do to reverse the status quo of large production capacity and marginal profits? Under the premise of oversupply in cobalt market, can output expansion and listing in stocks market help companies get out of the dilemma? The above-mentioned issues are what enterprises need to think about and finger out

China is extremely short of cobalt concentrates and needs to import cobalt concentrates in large amounts every year. After processing cobalt concentrates into raw materials for lithium battery, Chinese enterprises export finished products to South Korea, Japan, and so on at prices lower than that in domestic market by means of government subsidies, which not only leads to serious pollution in China but also weakens the competitiveness of internal lithium battery enterprises. This should not be the healthy development of Chinese cobalt industry.

Asian Metal will hold "World Cobalt Forum 2011" on April 14-16, 2011 at Horizon Resort hotel in Sanya. We will provide an effective platform for producers, traders and end users to exchange ideas. Leading International experts, scholars from relevant sectors and decision-making official of government will be invited to the forum to discuss on the topics of ” the characteristics of global cobalt market, supply and demand in Chinese cobalt market, the sustainable development of Chinese cobalt industry”. The conference will be one of the largest and most extensive in 2011.
