In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the surge in demand from diversified applications as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global lithium market:
Global lithium market: surge in demand from diversified applications
The surge in demand for lithium from applications such as glass and ceramics, lubricants, and power grid storage is expected to drive the market growth. The addition of lithium compounds in the production of enamels and glazes reduces the thermal expansion and firing temperatures and increases strength. Lithium carbonate is generally used for ceramic applications. The rapid growth of the residential and non-residential building sector in APAC countries such as China, India, Indonesia, and the Philippines is expected to fuel the demand for lithium.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for metals and minerals, “The increase in demand for lithium-ion batteries from various consumer electronic products contributes to the market growth. The high energy-to-weight ratios, slow loss of charge, lightweight, and lack of memory effect of lithium-ion batteries allow their use for electronics applications such as mobile phones, PCs, power banks, digital cameras, and notebook PCs.”
