SunSirs lithium carbonate analysts believe that downstream construction has begun, market enquiries have increased, and the atmosphere is positive. It is expected that in the short term, the industrial lithium carbonate market will continue to operate strongly. The current demand for the downstream power market is slowly recovering. It is expected that in the short term, the battery-level lithium carbonate market will consolidate and wait and see. It will need to focus on cost and downstream demand.
