Lithium Miners Expect Significant Supply Crunch by 2025

By 2027, the electric vehicle market could grow from $121.8 billion to $236.6 billion, says BlueWeave Consulting. Better, companies like Albemarle Corp. (NYSE:ALB) and Sociedad Quimica y Minera (NYSE:SQM) expect to cash in on “surging demand for the battery metal lithium, critical to electric vehicles,” reported Reuters.

In addition, Piedmont Lithium (NASDAQ:PLL) CEO Keith Phillips says lithium supply will struggle to keep up with demand, “and steps will need to be taken to incentivize additional production and exploration of the battery metal,” as noted by S&P Global Platts. "When people talk about 20% EV penetration by 2025, there might be a zero chance that could happen because there is no way the raw material supply will be ready,” he added.

Worse, by 2026, David Merriman, an expert on EV and battery materials at Roskill, as noted by The Northern Miner, global demand is “expected to exceed one million tonnes.”

“To meet this increasing demand for lithium products, which is more than double that expected this year, we would need to see not just an expansion in output from existing producers but also new producers looking to commission new capacity,” added Merriman. “This will require significant new investment in the industry.”
