  • Today, ASX 200 Materials Index was 0.48% down, closed at 16,597.30 points.
  • Materials was the worst-performing sector today, along with consumer and healthcare.
  • A rebound in iron ore prices helped the lithium stocks today.

Lithium prices have risen fast as global demand for electric vehicles (EVs) has grown many fold in the last couple of years. Spodumene prices increased to US$1300 per tonne in 2021, up from an average of US$400 in 2020. The rise in demand for EV is helping the prices of aluminium, nickel, zinc, and copper.

Today (16 May 2022), ASX 200 Materials Index was 0.48% down and it closed at 16,597.30 points. Eight out of 11 sectors were higher along with the S&P/ASX 200 Index. Industrials was the best performing sector, while materials, consumers, and healthcare were the worst-performing sectors today.

Even if the materials sector is not performing well today, some ASX materials stocks are trading in green. This might be because of the rebound in iron ore prices.

On this note, let’s take a look at the performance of three lithium stocks in May 2022.
