Lithium Hydroxide Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


Lithium hydroxide prices registered a steep decline in the first two quarters of 2023 as the downstream industries seemed hesitant to raise new orders. Further disruptions in the supply chains due to uneven trends in the cost of transportation and overall logistics caused lithium hydroxide prices to move downwards. In the second quarter, the support from the upstream industries also took a negative toll, further pushing its prices towards a southwards side.


The bearish trend in lithium hydroxide prices in European countries resulted from the price war between some big market players in the automotive sector. Due to increased competition in the market, the traders had to reduce their price ranges, negatively affecting the price trend of lithium hydroxide. The downstream industries also faced the adverse effects of weak economic conditions and trading sentiments.

North America

In North America, the price of lithium hydroxide faced a consistent decline due to low demand, especially from the Asia-Pacific markets. The failure of two major banks in the region further accelerated the fall in the market sentiments of lithium hydroxide.

The struggle also escalated due to the consistent drop in the production and procurement of EVs in the region in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the economic recovery of the market activities was slow, toning down the demand for lithium hydroxide, leading to a decline in its prices.
