CRU: Lithium Prices Crash Through $10,000 as Hype Meets Reality

Wednesday, August 21, 2019 - 9:00am

Many market players continue to forecast long-run prices for lithium in the mid-teens LCE, citing refinery bottlenecks and the potential for ramp-up delays in the mining and refining sector.

Key Points: 
  • Many market players continue to forecast long-run prices for lithium in the mid-teens LCE, citing refinery bottlenecks and the potential for ramp-up delays in the mining and refining sector.
  • We continue to forecast that lithium prices will be governed by cost fundamentals and that this will result in sustained lithium prices in the single-figures the same message which we have continually conveyed to CRU clients since November 2017.
  • Lithium carbonate prices in China have dropped by nearly 20% since the beginning of 2019 to RMB 65,000/t, equivalent to $9.25/kg LCE.
  • Many market players look to Chinese lithium spot prices as a bellwether of market health and therefore the continued decline of lithium prices in China has put mounting pressure on the global lithium market.
