Reportlinker Adds Cobalt – A Global Market Perspective

December 1, 2009

NEW YORK, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ –

Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Cobalt – A Global Market Perspective

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164495/Cobalt—A-Global-Market-Perspective.html

The global market structure for cobalt has changed drastically over the past few years. New end-use applications and large number of cobalt producers have emerged in the market, along with the continuous rise in the price of the commodity. Cobalt is now being manufactured separately, unlike the previous years, where the product was the result of various by-product operations. Cobalt is used in mobile phone batteries, false limbs, automobile rechargeable batteries, catalyst in industrial processes and fighter jets.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Cobalt: A Global Market Perspective” by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
