Is lithium out of power?

The battery metal has taken off, but it’s unlikely demand will outstrip supply in the long run.

Summary: Demand for lithium has shot through the roof, but investors should consider these three things: the global market is very small compared with other metals, those currently mining it could up production, and the big miners like Rio Tinto are considering jumping in – while the need for the metal will increase, so too can output.

Key take out: The boom might not be over, but investors should be aware that it’s likely there’s only a year of gains left before things slow.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Commodities.
