The global lithium compound market is driven by the increasing use of lithium-ion batteries in portable electronic devices. The Asia Pacific region is the leading regional market for lithium compound, accounting for the majority of the market share.

 

Properties and Applications

Lithium is referred to as a soft, silvery-white alkali metal, which occurs in compounds like petalite and spodumene. Lithium compounds are available in small amounts in mostly all igneous rocks and the water of several mineral springs. It is used in extensive applications varying from the production of plastics and synthetic rubber to textile dyes.

The market is divided on the basis of type into:

  • Lithium Carbonate
  • Lithium Hydroxide
  • Lithium Concentrate
  • Lithium Metal
  • Lithium Chloride
  • Butyllithium
  • Others 

Lithium carbonate is the most popular type of the compound on account of the huge demand for the product as it is used in the production of ceramics and glasses, battery cathodes, and solid-state carbon dioxide detectors.

On the basis of end use, the industry is segmented into:

  • Batteries
  • Glass and Glass Ceramics
  • Automotive Parts
  • Greases
  • Metallurgy
  • Polymer
  • Air Treatment
  • Others

Out of these, the report finds that batteries exhibit the largest end-use segment for the product since lithium batteries can store a significant amount of power.

The report also covers the regional markets of the product like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Market Analysis 

The global lithium compound market is driven by the renovation of buildings, new housing projects, and investments in infrastructure developments. Lithium compound is used in the production of ceramics, enamels, glass, and lubricants for high-temperature applications, and these products further aid the construction industry, which, as a result, are propelling the market growth of the product. The market is further aided by the continuous growth in the segments, such as rechargeable batteries, armour plating, cooling systems for nuclear reactors, bicycle frames, aircraft, specialty glasses, and others. In addition to this, the increasing use of lithium-ion batteries in portable electronic devices, such as smartphones, cameras, watches, electric vehicles, and pacemakers, is further spurring the growth of the market. 

 

Competitive Landscape
