Global Lithium Compound Market Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecasts 2019-2024 -

The "Lithium Compound Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024" report has been added to's offering.

The global lithium compound market reached a volume of 278,735 Tons in 2018.

Lithium is a soft and silver-white alkali metal, commonly present in the soil, plants, animals and human body. It is generally extracted from ores and mineral springs where it is found in small amounts. It has the lowest density of all the metals and reacts vigorously with water. Lithium is corrosive in nature and burns with a brilliant white flame. It forms numerous organic and inorganic compounds including hydride, oxide, nitride, carbide, hydroxide, etc. These compounds find applications in cooling systems for nuclear reactors, rechargeable batteries, special glasses, glass ceramics, aircrafts, armour plating, bicycle frames, etc.

Lithium-ion batteries are majorly used in portable electronic devices such as electric vehicles, camera, pacemakers, smartphones and watches. Increasing usage for these devices among the consumers has boosted the demand for li-ion batteries in the emerging countries such as China, South Korea, India and Brazil. This acts as the major growth-inducing factor for lithium compounds since they are used in the production of li-ion batteries.

Moreover, huge investments in infrastructure developments, renovation of buildings and new housing projects are increasing the demand for glasses and ceramics, thereby influencing the market of lithium compounds. Further, a shift towards electronic vehicles instead of petroleum-based vehicles is facilitating the demand for lithium compounds in the industry.

Owing to these factors, the market is expected to reach a volume of 420,658 Tons by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of more than 7% during 2019-2024.
