Welcome to the November-December 2021 issue of Metal Market Magazine, where we look back at the rally experienced across the main battery raw materials this year and where the near- and long-term bottlenecks are likely to arise.

The October issue – which you can still download via this link – focused on the ongoing rally in mineral sands and the fundamentals driving rare earths supply projects outside China.
