7 lithium stocks that will fuel the electric vehicle boom
The demand for lithium is expected to increase exponentially in the coming years. In fact, according to Statista, demand for lithium could very well double to 820,000 tonnes by then. Part of that demand will come from the companies that make the batteries we use every day. For example, lithium is an essential component of the batteries that power our mobile devices.
But the real growth will come as the United States invests in electric vehicles (EVs). The Biden administration recently announced its intention to convert the US government’s fleet of more than 600,000 vehicles to electric vehicles.
And as you know, electric vehicle stocks are in a kind of bubble right now. This is in part due to the growing number of companies that went public in the last year. However, as investors are starting to realize, not all of these companies will be the next Tesla. In fact, some of these companies might never succeed in bringing an EV to market, at least not on the scale required.
Those who make it will need lithium and a lot of lithium. To help you sift through the best lithium stocks to buy, we’ve put together this special overview.
