The global lithium market has been estimated at XX.XX metric tons in 2016 and is projected to reach XX.XX metric tons by 2021, at a CAGR of XX.XX% during the forecast period from 2016 to 2021. Lithium, a silver-white appearance soft metal, is the lightest metal in the periodic table. It reacts immediately when it comes in contact with air and water. Also, the metal exhibits the following properties such as extremely high coefficient of thermal expansion, viscosity modifier in glass melts, highest electrochemical potential, compared to other metals, and catalytic and fluxing characteristics; therefore is being used in numerous applications. Lithium is used in the form of metals, compound, and alloys.
Although lithium is widely distributed on earth, it does not occur in elemental form, owing to its high reactivity. Lithium is a rare metal and is found in continental brines, hard rock minerals, and clays in various parts of the world, but in very low concentrations. Presently, high-grade lithium ores and brines are the commercial sources of lithium production.
Lithium, owing to its excellent electrochemical potential, catalytic characteristics, and light weight, is becoming an integral part of the various commercial and industrial sectors. In the global lithium market report, the following major applications were taken into consideration: batteries, air treatment, frits, medical, metallurgy, ceramics, glass-ceramics, polymers, nuclear, lubricating greases, aluminium smelting, and others. The batteries segment accounted for XX.XX% share of the global lithium market in 2016.
The market has also been geographically segmented on the basis of consumption (APAC, North America, South America, Europe, and MEA) and also on the basis of reserves & production (Australia, China, Chile, Argentina, Zimbabwe, Brazil, Portugal, and the Unites States). In terms of consumption in 2015, China led the market with a share of XX.XX%. China has the second highest reserves of lithium in the world and combined with the restrictive lithium export policies enacted by the government; the consumption is consistently increasing in the country. Additionally, with the growing environmental concerns, the consumers are shifting towards the electric vehicles, which in turn increases the demand for lithium-ion batteries that are used to power electric vehicles, consequently increasing the consumption of lithium. Furthermore, with the consistent economic development, the financial status of the middle-class consumers has increased, as a result, their demand for portable electronic products such as laptops and smartphones has increased, in turn increasing the consumption of lithium in the country.
Furthermore, the shifting focus towards usage in aerospace and defense sector and adoption of green tires manufactured from lithium solutions will offer numerous opportunities for the growth of the global lithium market. Some of the major companies dominating this market are:
