Bolivia stopped exporting lithium in 2019 due to falling prices

Bolivia stopped exporting lithium carbonate from the Salar de Uyuni due to the fall in prices caused by an oversupply of the product on the international market. In 2019 the cost of the product reached US$10,500 per tonne (t), while in 2018 it was US$16,500. In 2018, 110 tons were exported to India and the United States, while in 2019, not a ton was traded.
