The LME is working with global market participants along the value chain to deliver new risk-management tools for the battery materials and electric vehicle (EV) industries. Some key battery materials such as nickel, lead, cobalt, copper and aluminium are already well established on the LME. Our recent cash-settled LME Cobalt (Fastmarkets MB) contract, and partnership with Fastmarkets MB to develop a transparent and robust pricing solution for lithium, are providing further hedging and trading opportunities for this growing sector in the future.
