Chinese EV subsidies squeeze lithium carbonate prices

June 19, 2018 (3:59 mins)



S&P Global Platts Battery Metals Podcast series continues, tracking one of the most-followed topics in the market and how this has impacted lithium carbonate prices over recent weeks. In this edition, Platts looks into the implementation of the 2018 Chinese electric vehicle subsidies that came into effect on June 12. The podcast analyzes some of the reasons why prices have come off since the beginning of May and what some market participants' expectations are for the second half of the year. Finally, the podcast explains the pricing gap between imported lithium carbonate and lithium carbonate trading on a DDP China basis.

This podcast is brought to you by Platts EMEA metals pricing specialist, Marcel Goldenberg, and battery metals specialist, Ben Kilbey. For comments or feedback, please contact Battery_Metals@spglobal.com.
