Elevated demand for battery materials due to energy transition makes this period a super cycle, said Battery Materials Review Editor Matt Fernley.

On Friday Fernley recorded Kitco Roundtable podcast with Mining Audiences Manager Michael McCrae, Kitco correspondent Paul Harris and editor Neils Christensen.

Battery materials like copper, nickel and lithium have had big price run ups in 2021.

"We are in a super cycle. I define a super cycle where you see a structural demand event tied to a situation where you have tight supply, and this is the very definition of a super cycle," said Fernley.
