Likely run on Cobalt?

With the increasing demand for electric cars, there is likely to be an increased demand for cobalt see this article.

I wonder if this will make cobalt pigments scarcer?

Cobalt was widely used in old Lithium ion accumulators for Mobile Phones and for Notebools. Cobalt metal price rising due to mobile phone mass production. But nowadays it was totally replaced with Iron phosphate. Lithium/Iron Phosphate system accumulators have low cost and better power characteristic.

For example: https://www.amazon.com/Battery-Tende.../dp/B00F9LPL5E
