Cobalt sulfate is an inorganic compound depicted by the chemical formula, CoSO4 (H2O) x. Cobalt sulfate refers to the hydrate, CoSO4.7 H2O, which is one of the most commonly available salts of cobalt. Cobalt sulfate heptahydrate appears as red monoclinic crystals, which liquefies at around 100°C, and becomes anhydrous at 250°C. It is soluble in water, slightly soluble in ethanol, and soluble in methanol. The salts of cobalt sulfate are paramagnetic.

The global cobalt sulphate market was valued at $913 million in 2016, and is anticipated to reach $1,089 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 2.1% during the forecast period from 2017 to 2023. In terms of volume, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period. Cobalt sulphate market is segmented based on application and geography. The demand for cobalt sulphate has increased, owing to rise in use in the lithium ion batteries. In addition, the use of cobalt alloys in growing industries, such as aviation, consumer electronics, stationery storage & electric vehicles drive the market.

Based on the application, the market is bifurcated into super alloys, hard facing/ HSS alloy, magnet, hard material, catalyst, color, and battery. The battery segment accounted for the highest share of cobalt sulphate market in 2015. Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are used in passenger electric vehicles, consumer electronics, and stationery storage. The market for electric vehicles (EVs) was valued at 270,000 units in 2015, and propelled to 1 million units in 2017. The growth in the electric vehicles segment was attributed to the rise of cobalt sulphate industry. However, the growth of the market is restricted, owing to its fluctuating prices & unavailability in many countries. The prices for both lithium and cobalt have increased from to $20.5-24/kg in 2017 from $7/kg in June 2016, thereby restricting the market growth for cobalt sulphate.

Geographically, the market is analyzed across America, Europe (Excluding Russia), Asia, Africa, and rest of world. Asia led the market, both in terms of value & volume, in 2015, owing to large volumes of ore & concentrate is mined in China. The demand for cobalt sulphate is anticipated to be highest in Asia due to the rise in applications of cobalt sulphate. China Molybdenum Co. Ltd. acquired Africa’s largest copper mines to secure China’s supplies of cobalt for increased applications of cobalt sulphate
