Lithium Carbonate Price Trend for the Q1, Q2 and Q3 of 2022


The price trends for Lithium Carbonate kept strong during the first quarter owing to the limited inventory and high downstream demand. The downstream lithium hydroxide market was on the rise, and owing to the strong cost support, the lithium carbonate prices averaged 369,600 RMB/MT in Q1.

The second quarter continued with positive price trends. However, the prices fell slightly mid-quarter as the demand side was impacted owing to epidemic restrictions. Also, the acceptance of high-priced lithium salts was low. The lithium carbonate prices averaged 460,000 RMB/MT towards the end of the second quarter. As the market demand rebounded owing to solid support from the EV sector, the prices inclined again, averaging 494,000 RMB/MT towards the end of Q3.


Lithium carbonate prices surged throughout the first quarter owing to robust demand from the downstream sectors. With the manufacturers restricting activities with the Russian suppliers, the feedstock prices soared. The situation worsened with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, triggering an energy crisis and high-cost inflation. The prices dwindled but recovered soon as the demand surpassed the supply. The heavier prices continued in the third quarter averaging 74622 USD/MT.

North America

Similar price trends were seen in the US domestic market. The prices kept high owing to solid demand amid labour shortages, power consumption restrictions, high feedstock prices, supply shortages and inflationary pricing. With the world switching to greener methods massive surge in the market was created to acquire lithium carbonate manufacturing processes/facilities, thus driving the prices further. The lithium carbonates prices averaged 72960 USD/MT towards the end of Q3.
