Top 3 ASX Lithium Stocks of 2024

Global demand for lithium-based power presents a significant opportunity for Australia, the top lithium-producing nation. As countries and companies establish their positions in the battery value chain, Australia has the ability to leverage its strong output and vast reserves to shape the industry landscape into the 2030s.

The future of lithium demand relies heavily on the growth of the electric vehicle (EV) market, and in recent years its rapid expansion has led to much higher mining of the commodity — so much so that the market has entered a surplus.

This oversupply kept lithium prices subdued in the first half of 2024, but experts continue to forecast a bright long-term outlook for the essential battery material as countries around the world pursue net-zero goals.

Top 5 Canadian Lithium Stocks of 2024

Continued surpluses in the lithium market have weighed down prices and impeded the sector’s growth during the second quarter of 2024. The excess has been attributed to heightened production in 2021 and 2022 amid higher lithium prices.

According to a July Fastmarkets report, increased lithium demand is fully priced into the market. China's lithium carbonate equivalent production from lepidolite rose by 126 percent year-over-year in April, while spodumene production increased by 109 percent. The accumulation of inventory suggests that there is no immediate supply shortage, but time is needed for demand to absorb the surplus.

With so much excess in the market, many lithium producers and explorers have struggled to see positive share price activity. However, several Canadian-listed lithium companies were able to see some growth during the first half of the year.
