Cobalt sulfate is an inorganic, divalent cobalt salt of sulfuric acid, represented by the chemical formula, CoSO4. It is an odorless reddish metallic salt, which is readily soluble in water and methanol. Cobalt oxide or other cobalt derivatives are dissolved in dilute sulfuric acid, which crystallizes to form cobalt sulfate. In addition, large amount of cobalt sulfate is produced as a by-product during the manufacturing of various metals, such as nickel and copper. The global cobalt sulphate market is segmented based on application and region. Based on application, it is bifurcated into super alloy, hard facing/HSS & other alloy, magnet, hard material, catalyst, color, and battery, and others. Super alloys are high-performance alloys, used in situations that require exceptional properties, such as high mechanical strength, resistance to high temperatures, corrosion, and other stress situations. Besides the batteries segment, a major share of the cobalt sulphate industry has accounted by the super alloys segment due to their applications in aircraft manufacturing.
