Volatility expected in manganese sulfate amid supply and processing capacity bottlenecks; spotlight on sulfate

Sometimes regarded as the “forgotten” battery material, attention towards manganese has increased drastically as participants seek to localise supply chains and ramp up battery production to meet growing demand.

Manganese sulfate is a key material component of some lithium-ion battery chemistries, particularly nickel, manganese, cobalt (NMC) cathodes, providing stability to the cathode during cycles, enabling greater range.
