Lithium Supply & Markets Conference held this week

Industrial Minerals, the London-based intellectual home of one of our experts, Simon Moores, is hosting a conference on Lithium Supply & Markets in Las Vegas this week.

Over the past few years, Lithium has seen increased attention due to its relevance in battery technology. Lithium Carbonate is a key component in the manufacture of Lithium-Ion batteries, the batteries “that have been chosen to power the next generation of electric vehicles.”

Speakers at the event, which kicked off yesterday and wraps up on January 31, include industry representatives and other experts from the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Canada, Argentina, Peru, Chile and China.

While Lithium presently only makes the watch list of the American Resources Risk Pyramid, chances are this may change. With the United States being more than 80 percent reliant on foreign Lithium imports to meet domestic manufacturing needs, keeping a close eye on market and supply outlook is not only a good idea – it’s a necessity.
