Like it or not, the Green Agenda is here to stay. The electrification of the global economy will continue—not just because of government mandates and incentives, but because consumers want electric cars and more.

This means that the need for “battery metals” will continue to grow—and that’s a trend with investment implications.

And lithium is the star of this show.

But after a meteoric rise in 2022—that’s been wiped out in 2023—the question is whether it’s a rising or falling star.

Our free lithium report covers the essentials of the market, including our own projections for supply and demand—and hence likely price trends.

Novices can get up to speed quickly. Seasoned investors can doublecheck their investment theses.
