Global Lithium Market Segmental Analysis

The Global Lithium Market is segmented based on Product, Application, and Region. Based on Product it is categorized into Carbonate, Hydroxide, and Others. Based on Application it is categorized into Batteries, Glass & Ceramics, Lubricant, Medical, Polymers, Metallurgy, and Others. Based on the region it is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and MEA.

Analysis by Product

In 2020, lithium carbonate (Li CO) dominated the market. It's also known as Li salt, and it's most commonly used to process metal oxides. Carbonate is the first chemical in the production cycle, derived from brines. It is used in the pharmaceutical sector to create drugs for treating bipolar disorder patients and preventing cluster headaches. Furthermore, Li CO is widely used in the automotive industry as a result of the increasing popularity of electric vehicles, offering a boost to the Lithium market growth. Battery advancements have fuelled a surge in demand for lithium hydroxide, which is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period. It's produced from a mixture of materials, including petroleum hard rocks and brines. Several manufacturers are building plants worldwide to increase their entire company and secure a position in the value chain. Albemarle, for example, began building on a Lihydroxide (LiOH) production plant in Kemerton, Western Australia, in March 2019 for USD 709.4 million. The plant will be able to generate up to 100,000 tonnes of premium battery-grade LiOH per year once it is fully operational.

Analysis by Application

In 2020, the batteries segment dominated the market, and this dominance is expected to continue over the forecast period. Li batteries come in a variety of active material combinations for the cathode, electrolyte, and anode. There are two types of batteries: main and secondary. Cameras, calculators, electronic games, watches, laptops, and other devices all need primary batteries. Portable computers, telephones, tablets, electric vehicles, cordless tools, and video cameras all require secondary batteries. The Li-ion battery industry will be driven by an increase in the sale of electric vehicles due to rising per capita disposable income and consumer preferences.

Global Lithium Market Dynamics

Driver

  • Electric vehicles use lithium-ion batteries as a source of power. The widespread usage of electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) has grown exponentially lithium-ion battery adoption, which is expected to continue to increase in the future. Consumer acceptance of EVs has contributed to the growth of the Lithium market for these energy-saving, pollution-reducing vehicles. The number of electric vehicles is steadily increasing, owing to benefits such as reduced vehicle engine service, reduced usage of hazardous oil waste, reduced pollution caused by fuel combustion engines, and the advancement of battery tech. Electric vehicles are seen as the automobile industry's and transportation systems' future.; their increased adoption will eventually increase the demand for lithium-ion batteries.

Restraint

  • Hazardous chemicals, such as acids and heavy metals including mercury and lead, can be found in spent batteries. A few years back, a fire caused by lithium-based batteries resulted in the burning of more than 132,000 liters of chemicals, causing the closure of two major roads in the United Kingdom. It is required to store expended batteries in watertight containers and away from flammable and combustible materials. A Class D extinguisher and sand should also be kept nearby as a preventive measure in the event of a fire. As used batteries retain charge, there is a risk of unplanned discharge, which could cause damage to the property and people. Unless otherwise specified, all batteries should be viewed as holding a charge and stored with care.

Global Lithium Market Competitive Landscape

To supply excellent performance, production, and development of batteries, manufacturers are focusing on R&D developments. The US Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, in collaboration with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), developed a novel particle-level cathode coating for LIBs in July 2020 to improve their safety and life. In addition, at Argonne National Laboratory, DOE researchers have opened the ReCell Site, a LIB recycling center. These recycled components can be employed in new batteries, decreasing production costs by 10% to 30% and lowering the overall cost of electric vehicles. XNRGI is a Li battery firm that specializes in next-generation energy storage. Grid-scale energy storage is provided by the business, which has also introduced a porous silicon XNRGI storage technology for rechargeable batteries.
