An investment trend in 2019 according to börse-am-sonntag are raw materials such as lithium and cobalt. These two commodities are interesting for sustainable returns, as they are mainly used in the manufacture of e-car batteries and the e-car market in particular is still at a young stage of development.
Lithium demand doubles according to experts
Experts even speak of a doubling of lithium demand by 2025 and the figures already speak for themselves. The number of e-vehicles sold worldwide has doubled every 15 months over the last 8 years, which has already led to a considerable increase in lithium demand.
Investors should invest directly in individual companies
A very similar picture emerges for cobalt, which is becoming scarcer relatively quickly due to the limited mining areas. So far, investors have no choice but to invest directly in individual companies in the sector. Lithium, on the other hand, is easily tradable in the form of ETFs on various stock exchanges.
Regardless of how exciting your chemistry class was. It definitely makes sense to find out more about lithium and cobalt in terms of your own finances. – Maxim Bederov
