Minor and specialty metals have become part of critical raw materials (CRM).

Our society evolves along with innovations and sustainable concerns. Innovations require specialty metals. Among them, we can list: Cobalt, Graphite, Lithium, Molybdenum, Manganese, Niobium, Titanium, Tantalum, Tungsten, Vanadium, Zirconium...

We can say we are in the age of New Efficient Materials at the dawn of Industry 4.

The world population is growing and is quickly urbanising. The need for these specific metals is growing, while the industry is innovating, seeking technology efficiency for more sustainable objectives.

Today’s economies are dramatically changing, triggered by development in emerging markets, the accelerated rise of new technologies, sustainability policies. digitisation, increasing automation, and new business models have revolutionised many industries. But more importantly, these industries follow the evolution of materials and competition is played in the quality and reliability of products.

Strategic metals are today improving significantly some components for our needs of a modern world in search of : sustainable energy, mobility, miniaturisation, speed, lightweight alloys and efficient materials.

Many supply chains in key sectors are concerned by the need of these speciality metals and today defined as critical metals. .
