The US is All-In on Lithium

With the Biden Administration providing $3.16B USD in funding for lithium projects domestically, and investing $5B USD towards the EV charging network, the US is all in on the electrification of America. [1]

The World Needs More Mines

It is estimated that with the immense increase in battery metals demand, the world will need almost 400 new mines by 2035.[2]

Supply, demand, price image


Global lithium mining market is expected to grow from $3.33B in 2020 to $6.37B in 2030. 98% of the worlds lithium production occurs in Australia, Latin America and China.[1]


Lithium demand is set to rise from 500,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) in 2021 to an estimated 3,000,000 – 4,000,000 tonnes by 2030, representing an over 300% increase within the decade.[2]



Lithium has risen from $6,000 per tonne to over $78,032 a tonne in 2022, representing a 13 times increase in less than two years.[3]



Worldwide EV sales are forecasted to increase from 6.5M units to 51M by 2030. Almost 400 new mines are needed to meet this demand by 2035. With over 80% of lithium ion battery production being in China and currently only one operating lithium mine in the United States, the US Department of Energy is making a $3.16B investment in lithium ion battery production domestically to secure the supply of the future.
