[market] from May to June, the overseas market recovered or the demand for lithium cobalt oxide increased

Mobile phone shipments surged in April, mainly driven by the launch of new mobile phones, in addition to the delay of channel providers and consumers from February to march in the early stage. From March to April, the shipments of lithium cobalt oxide battery factory and lithium cobalt oxide cathode materials increased synchronously. In addition to the recovery of the domestic market, the overseas market is also gradually recovering. It is understood that some apple stores in the United States are about to resume operations. The first to resume operations are some stores in Idaho, South Carolina, Alabama and Alaska. In addition, Apple's retail stores in South Korea, Australia, Germany and other countries have gradually reopened. In India, the city closure has been gradually opened since May 1, and some factories such as Xiaomi, oppo and vivo have begun to resume work. In April, due to the launch of new mobile phones, it experienced a wavelet peak. In May, the domestic mobile phone shipments may decrease slightly month on month, but the global demand gradually warmed up. In May, the demand for lithium cobaltate batteries and lithium cobaltate may be basically flat, and in June, the demand for lithium cobaltate batteries and lithium cobaltate may increase slightly.

铁锂电池生产发力明显 钴价持续回升几率小

[market] the production of iron lithium battery is strong, and the probability of continuous recovery of cobalt price is small

Ternary materials: the price of ternary materials was flat last Wednesday. Last week, the price of upstream precursors was under pressure, the demand of battery factories was weak, the acceptance of price rise was low, and the price of ternary materials remained unchanged. Overseas European and American car companies have resumed work one after another, but the resumption of production of vehicle factories is slow, and the export orders of material factories have not been restored. Domestic battery factories are in the state of de stocking, and their willingness to purchase is not high. The price of SMM ternary material (type 523) is 111000-118000 yuan / ton, with the average price unchanged from last week. The price of SMM ternary material (type 622) is 131000-139000 yuan / ton, with the average price unchanged from last week.

Lithium iron phosphate: the price of lithium iron phosphate fell last week. Last week, the price of lithium carbonate continued to fall, and the price of iron phosphate also fell slightly, which led to the decline of the price of lithium iron phosphate. Domestic power market demand is weak, and orders have not increased. The purchase volume of 5g base stations in the energy storage market has gradually increased since April, but the supply of iron and lithium is too large, and the market order grabbing is serious. Most manufacturers are forced to reduce prices, and the price of iron and lithium basically fluctuates above and below the cost line. Last week, the price of SMM lithium iron phosphate (power type) was 35000-38000 yuan / ton, and the average price fell by 1500 yuan / ton compared with last week.

Cobalt prices rose last week, but the current new energy market demand continues to be depressed, large-scale superalloy and magnetic material manufacturers have sufficient raw materials for electrolytic cobalt, and the transaction scale in the spot market is relatively small. SMM believes that the probability of continuous recovery of cobalt price in the later period is small. In terms of lithium, the current price of lithium carbonate has entered a cyclical bottom range. According to SMM, due to the current high inventory of ores and finished products and the lack of willingness of enterprises to enter the mine, enterprises have begun to reduce the operating rate or stop shipping this month, and it is expected that the price of battery grade lithium carbonate will gradually stop falling and stabilize. As the supply and demand structure of lithium hydroxide changes, the upstream and downstream carry out price negotiations based on the new market conditions, and the market price of lithium hydroxide may loosen later this month.

[quotation] on May 18, the domestic cobalt price fluctuated, maintaining stability, and the international cobalt price fell violently

On May 18, the price quotation of domestic metal cobalt fluctuated and remained stable, the domestic cobalt market fluctuated and warmed up, and the international cobalt price fluctuated and fell, which was bad for the domestic cobalt market. The demand of the cobalt market was general, the enthusiasm of customers to purchase fell, and the demand was low. The overall outlook of the cobalt market was bad. At this stage, the risk aversion psychology still existed, and the pressure of cobalt price decline was great.

Global mobile phone sales have slowly recovered, new energy vehicle sales are expected to pick up, cobalt market demand is reduced, the supply of cobalt mines in DRC and other countries is affected by the epidemic and transportation is not smooth, cobalt raw materials from cobalt mines arriving in Hong Kong in May and June are affected, the supply risk of cobalt market is increased, the benefits are increased, and the short-term cobalt market is still bad. It is expected that the short-term cobalt market will fluctuate and adjust, and the rising cycle of cobalt market is still difficult to determine. (source: Business Club)

[think tank circles] the rumor of "cobalt removal" is rising again

"Cobalt removal" is becoming the key research and development direction of battery enterprises and cathode material manufacturers. In order to reduce the cost of batteries, battery enterprises at home and abroad have been reducing the proportion of cobalt in cathode materials as early as a few years ago. Since this year, the concept of cobalt free battery has been mentioned constantly. There has been constant speculation in the industry about the material system of cobalt free battery. With the approaching of the product technology conference of honeycomb energy, Tesla and other enterprises, can the mystery of cobalt free battery be solved?
