Lithium Market Overview:
Lithium can be defined as a low-density metal that finds application in both inorganic and organic reactants. Lithium can be found with other compounds in brine pools and igneous rock. Its high density enables it to store substantial power within a very limited space. Its applications cover myriad sectors like ceramics, lithium soaps, fire-viewing windows for fireplaces, air-conditioners, lubricating greases, and batteries. Its use as power storage unit for portable electronic devices, smartphones, and electric vehicles can impact the market growth.
Market Research Future’s (MRFR’s) take on the global lithium market reveals a possibility of crossing USD 6.62 billion valuation by the end of 2028 with a CAGR of over 10.6%. One of the major market drivers is the electric vehicles that includes diverse types like pure battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). It finds application as lithium bromide in absorption chillers for air conditioning. It can assist in dehumidification, air regeneration, and also, cooling process, which is bound to provide traction for growth.
