According to the price monitoring of the business agency, the overall price of lithium carbonate in East China showed a downward trend in June, while the prices of industrial carbon and electric carbon were still at a low level. As of June 29, the average price of industrial grade lithium carbonate in East China was 39440 yuan / ton, which was 760 yuan / ton lower than that at the beginning of the month (the average price of industrial carbon in East China was 40200 yuan / ton on June 1), down 1.89%. On June 29, the average price of battery grade lithium carbonate in East China was 44200 yuan / ton, which was increased by 200 yuan / ton or 0.45% compared with the average price at the beginning of the month (June 1: the average price of carbon in East China was 44000 yuan / ton).

According to the observation of market changes, the market price of lithium carbonate decreased slightly in the first ten days of June. Due to the sufficient supply, the sluggish downstream demand, the prominent contradiction between supply and demand in the market, and the sluggish market trading, the price fell under pressure. By the end of June, the transaction situation of lithium carbonate market was still relatively cold. Due to the slight recovery of lithium iron phosphate market demand and the low operating rate of ternary materials, the market transaction was difficult, so the price of lithium carbonate went down further. However, there was a slight rebound in the price of battery grade lithium carbonate in the first ten days of June, which made the price of battery grade lithium carbonate still showed an upward trend.
The downstream market price of lithium hydroxide ran smoothly in the first ten days of June. The demand for power type lithium iron phosphate was weak, and it operated under pressure. Due to the slow recovery of the ride market, lithium iron phosphate was in a weak position. From the perspective of market development in late June, the downstream terminal is still pushing down the price. Downstream purchasing enterprises intend to transmit the cost pressure to the upstream, which makes the price of lithium carbonate still under pressure. This month, the comprehensive price of industrial grade lithium carbonate is between 35000 yuan / ton and 45000 yuan / ton, and the comprehensive price of battery grade lithium carbonate is between 45000 yuan / ton and 48000 yuan / ton.
According to the lithium carbonate analysts of the business club, the current lithium carbonate market is still in a relatively weak state. The operating rate of the downstream market recovers slowly, which has a certain impact on the market demand. The inflow of imported lithium carbonate also has a certain impact on the domestic market. It is expected that the price puzzle of lithium carbonate market will continue in the short term.
