Market Trends

The growing demand for electric vehicles, where cobalt-based batteries are used, is expected to aid the market growth over the forecast period. The growing concern regarding the environment is driving this trend. The governments across the nations are promoting the use of electric vehicles to curb vehicular emissions and reduce the carbon footprint on the environment. The incentives offered by the governments mainly take the form of purchase rebates, tax exemptions, or tax credits, among others. For instance, in Italy, electric vehicles are exempt from various taxes, including the annual circulation or ownership tax for the first five years starting from their registration. Afterward, they are provided a 75% reduction on the tax rate in comparison to gasoline-powered vehicles. Other regions like Norway has envisioned a national goal where all new car sales should be zero-emission vehicles (electric or hydrogen) by 2025. This is expected to boost the industry growth over the next five years.
