Mercedes-Benz, Almonty Industries, Rheinmetall - New battery trend from Korea

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • RareEarths
  • renewableenergies

Major companies like Mercedes-Benz are fully committed to electric mobility. This can be seen in the numerous initiatives to open factories worldwide. Whether in Hungary, Thailand or Germany, Mercedes is planning a dense network of battery factories. But where are the raw materials coming from? And which batteries will prevail in the future? We provide an overview and highlight a new battery trend from South Korea.

Almonty Industries, Rheinmetall and Amazon - The profiteers of the crises

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • Defense
  • crisis

South Korea is one of the few democratic countries with high tungsten deposits. Almonty Industries is a mining company with unbeatable expertise, bringing a disused tungsten mine in South Korea back to life. The metal is urgently needed in the defense, aerospace and automotive industries. Until now, China and Russia have dominated the tungsten market. But the last 24 months have shown how fragile supply chains and democracies can be. Alternatives are needed. One profiteer of the crisis is the arms company Rheinmetall. Since Russia launched its war of aggression in Ukraine, the share price has shot up. Amazon employees are currently experiencing the exact opposite. Their wages are supported partly by share packages - and thus, a disaster could occur in 2023.

Rare earths are increasingly important: Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, Volkswagen

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • RareEarths
  • Electromobility

Der Spiegel, Die Welt, M√ľnchner Merkur - in the past week alone, many media reported on the role of rare earths in the energy transition. The conclusion everywhere: rare earths are not rare but urgently needed. Mining sites, therefore, urgently need to be developed - ideally in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. We focus on three companies in urgent need of rare earths or considered up-and-coming producers.

Rheinmetall, Almonty Industries, Lynas - Rearmament, now!

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • RareEarths
  • armaments

The decision on the Leopard deliveries to Ukraine has already been made, but now the discussion is turning to the provision of further heavy guns such as the "Panther" super tank developed by Rheinmetall. In addition, the NATO states are discussing the provision of combat aircraft. Once again, an important point is being forgotten. The production of these weapons systems requires critical metals, whose market is primarily dominated by China. The next dependency is thus preprogrammed.

Defense Metals, Rheinmetall, Encavis - New technologies cannot do without this critical raw material

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • Technology
  • renewableenergies

What do metal alloys, magnets, phosphors, ceramics, glass, catalysts and chemical processes need to function well? Rare earths - a critical raw material that is primarily processed in China. Without this raw material, there are no smartphones, computers, wind turbines or electric vehicles. There have been tensions between China and the United States for some time. If these tensions escalate and China stops its rare earth supplies, the Western world will have a problem. As demand for rare earths continues to rise, it is important to ensure sufficient supplies to meet the growing demands of the technology industry.

Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, Lynas - Time is running out!

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • RareEarths
  • Defense

Heavy weapons for peace. Tanks, submarines and fighter jets for Ukraine, whatever the cost. This scenario is the bitter reality right now and is being promoted across the board by Western politicians. It may not sound very understandable, but in order to guarantee peace, the world continues to arm itself. Companies in the armaments industry, now declared to be sustainable investment opportunities, are booming. With the seething conflict in Taiwan, tensions are again on the rise. With its raw materials, such as rare earth metals, China has the power to act. The West is frantically trying to reduce dependencies, which is impossible to achieve in the short term.

Auxico Resources, Rheinmetall, Rock Tech Lithium - Important news

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • Defense
  • Lithium

Fears of a global recession are still pervasive, and commodity prices are at moderate levels after the sell-off of recent months. In contrast, the price of lithium remains high. The reason is the continued strong demand from the electric car industry. However, the existing supply of lithium resources is scarce. The primary beneficiaries of this shortage, in addition to existing producers, are exploration companies that have already secured attractive properties. A similar phenomenon is occurring now with the critical commodity of rare earth metals.

Rheinmetall, Globex Mining, Brenntag - Just before the breakout

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Defense

The themes of the past year are likely to continue to dominate the markets in 2023. Despite excellent prospects, shares from the renewable energy and electromobility sectors corrected strongly and are currently trading at attractive long-term levels. Due to strong demand from this sector and the strengthening of the defense sector since the Ukraine conflict, commodity producers benefit in turn. In particular, companies from the Western world are likely to move closer into focus here.

Nio, Altech Advanced Materials, Rheinmetall - Still on trend

  • Energy
  • Batteries
  • Electromobility
  • Defense

The prevailing themes from last year will continue to be in vogue in 2023. Due to the political strategy of achieving peace through heavy weapons, the order situation for defense companies should improve even further. In addition, electric carmakers should continue to top the sales figures from the fiscal year ending in 2022. In terms of the efficiency of the battery, which is essential for electromobility, several companies worldwide are fighting for the crown. One German company has two hot irons in the fire.
