With the increasing demand for electric vehicles, the demand for batteries continues to increase, which has boosted the demand for various raw materials for battery production, including cathode materials, according to foreign media reports.

Foreign media, citing data released by the Korea Customs Office on Thursday local time, reported that South Korea’s battery cathode material exports reached $10.186 billion last year, more than twice the $4.42 billion in 2021.

According to the foreign media report, after the significant increase, South Korea’s exports of battery cathode materials last year also exceeded the exports of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles for the first time. The latter exported $6.59 billion last year, up 14.4 percent year-on-year and up more than 10 percent for the fourth consecutive year.
