Critical Raw Materials: Achieving European Supply Security

Critical raw materials (CRMs) are essential for key future sectors, industries and technologies. As a result, global demand for CRMs will significantly increase in the coming years, intensifying global competition. Against this backdrop, the importance of supply security of CRMs has become a key item on the European Commission’s political agenda. Germany is already one of the world's fifth largest importers of raw materials. At the same time, however, the global supply of many CRMs is limited to a few countries (which are also often politically unstable). In addition, geo-economic and geopolitical import dependencies are increasing with the rising demand for raw materials - and with them the risks and vulnerabilities of the European economy. In this context, China is vying to control entire global value chains for key technologies, including CRMs.
