Global Lithium Market to Reach US$ 7.28 Bn by 2026 : TMR


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/28/2019 -- Lithium Market – Snapshot

Lithium, which is a low-density metal is present in the earth's crust in the amount of 65 ppm (parts per million). Lithium takes part in reactions with both organic and inorganic reactants. Lithium is usually found in the form of compounds with other minerals, usually in igneous rock or brine pools. High-energy density is the unique feature of lithium and due to this property, lithium can store a significant amount of energy in a very limited space. Lithium is primarily used in applications such as energy storage, air treatment, greases and lubricants, and glasses and ceramics. Examples of lithium applications include batteries (smartphone batteries), ceramics and glasses (fire-viewing windows for fireplaces), lithium soaps (lubricating greases), and air treatment (air-conditioners).

The global lithium market was valued at US$ 2,983.59 Mn in 2017 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 10.7% from 2018 to 2026, according to a new report titled 'Lithium Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018–2026,' published by Transparency Market Research (TMR). The global lithium market is driven by rise in the demand for electric vehicles. Asia Pacific accounts for a major share of the global lithium market.

Increase in demand for lithium for its use in electric vehicles to fuel the lithium market

Increase in sales of electric vehicles including hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and pure battery electric vehicles (BEVs) is anticipated to fuel the demand for lithium batteries and thereby, lithium during the forecast period. Low weight and high energy density are major properties of lithium responsible for its use in battery applications. Increase in government funding for research and development activities for energy storage applications is likely to augment the demand for lithium in the next few years. The U.S. government has granted US$ 2 Bn to accelerate the development and manufacture of next-generation electric vehicles. Increasing use of lithium in mobile phones, cordless power tools, laptops, and high-tech devices is anticipated to drive the global lithium market during the forecast period.
