    How lithium-rich Chile botched a plan to attract battery makers

    In March 2018, the Chilean government unveiled big news: Corporate investors, including South Korean electronics giant Samsung, would build three factories in Chile to produce battery parts for electric vehicles. Chile had lured the companies with an enticing offer. In exchange for helping the South American country, the world's No. 2 miner of lithium, jumpstart its own EV battery industry, the firms would get a guaranteed supply of the coveted metal at attractive prices for nearly three decades amid a global race to lock down supplies.

    Morgan Stanley forecasts 30 per cent drop in lithium prices by 2025

    Morgan Stanley says it’s even more bearish on the future of battery raw material lithium, saying it expects prices to fall by 30 per cent over the next six years. The investment bank said it expects lithium prices to keep falling until 2025, compared to an earlier forecast of 2021, as new technologies lower the cost of production and keep the market oversupplied. “We continue to see oversupply of raw material globally,” the bank said.

    RPT-COLUMN-Boom-and-bust lithium market needs a pricing rethink: Andy Home

    Albemarle Corp., the world's largest lithium producer, is not impressed by the London Metal Exchange's (LME) plans to launch a lithium contract. "An exchange contract tends to support a commodity market, and that's not what we believe this (lithium market) is," David Ryan, the company's head of corporate strategy and investor relations, told an industry conference in Chile earlier this month. The conference was hosted by Fastmarkets, which has been chosen by the LME to provide the reference price for the new contract, but Albemarle won't be contributing, for now at least.

    Albemarle details efforts to boost its Chilean lithium output by 30 percent

    Albemarle Corp on Tuesday detailed a process it believes will increase its Chilean lithium output by nearly a third and said it is working to reduce the affect of precipitation on its evaporation ponds. Both steps should, if successful, help the world's largest lithium producer solidify its operations in Chile's Atacama desert, which contains massive reserves of the white metal used to make electric vehicle batteries. A month ago, U.S.-based Albemarle announced it had developed a process to boost Chilean lithium output by 30% without extracting more brine from the Atacama, the world's driest desert.

    How much does lithium cost? The industry can't seem to agree

    Opaque pricing for lithium, the powerhouse metal fueling the electric vehicle revolution, is expected to be top of mind this week as the industry's leaders gather in Santiago, with calls rising for more transparency to attract much-needed expansion funding. The London Metal Exchange is working to develop a tradable price for the white metal, but until then, the industry's investors, customers, analysts and executives are left without a full sense of the global market. "The fact that there isn't a benchmark price means that some of the banks haven't been keen to get involved because they can't hedge their price risk," said William Adams, an analyst at Fastmarkets, which is hosting the Santiago conference and vying to be a pricing provider for the LME contract.
