Battery Metals Outlook 2022

A Sneak Peek At What The Insiders Are Saying about Lithium

"Demand will drive prices in the second half of the year. A swift battery demand increase will push prices back to where they were mid-2021 or higher — without these anticipated demand increases, prices for the highly by-product vanadium could easily fall."
— Willis Thomas, CRU Group

“When we look at the project pipeline, it’s very thin. There are very few projects which are close to production; there are a few more which are early stage exploration. The deficit is going to be so big that to fill it by 2030 the global production of high-purity manganese products, which is mostly the sulfate, will need to grow more than 10 times to meet that demand."
— Andrew Zemek, special advisor at CPM Group

"We expect growth in supply to be outpaced by demand growth in 2022, which should provide beneficial pricing to the majority of current lithium producers."
— George Miller, Benchmark Mineral Intelligence"
