Bets on electric vehicles light up lithium miners and battery makers

Investors are betting that the rise of electric cars will drive a period of rapid growth for lithium miners and battery producers.

The Solactive Global Lithium index, which includes shares of battery manufacturers, has risen 32 per cent this year to a record high, powered by gains for Chinese companies Ganfeng Lithium and CATL. Sales of electric cars have surged in Europe and China this year, boosting the outlook for the battery industry.

The world’s largest carmakers have pledged to spend billions developing new models. Meanwhile the EU said last week it might ban petrol and diesel cars by 2035.

Cadence Minerals plc (LON:KDNC) provides mining services. The Company focuses on finding lithium and other technology minerals in new places, as well as offers extracting services.
