Benchmark Minerals Launches Lithium Carbonate and Hydroxide Price Indexes

Benchmark Mineral Intelligence is delighted to announce the launch of two new lithium price indexes. The two dedicated price indexes – lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide – draw from the data collected by our analysts across 11 market prices to give the most accurate, independent and reliable industry insights.

The two indexes build on the original Benchmark Lithium Price Index, which was launched in 2015 to provide an overview of lithium chemical price trends from Benchmark Minerals’ monthly Lithium Price Assessment. We revamped this at the start of 2019 with an increased number of data points, making the index more reflective of market developments.

The latest additions to our suite of lithium price indices provides increased insight into the trends of the two key lithium chemicals.

Having spoken at length to the lithium industry from both the sell and buy side of the supply chain, Benchmark Minerals has launched the lithium carbonate index and lithium hydroxide index to provide industry stakeholders with a more specific tool to use in contract negotiations.
