Lithium Market Evolution

27 November 2018 Samantha Wietlisbach

The market for lithium, lithium minerals, and lithium chemicals has seen major changes over the last four years in terms of supply and demand and will continue to evolve and grow over the coming five years and beyond. The main driver of growth in demand over recent years has been secondary (rechargeable) lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles (EVs) and portable electronics market.

During 2013- 17, global lithium consumption increased at nearly 9% annually, with growth of more than 19% per year forecast over the next five years. The main driver for this growth in demand has been lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) for electric vehicles (EVs), including battery electric vehicles (BEVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs).

We have built on our extensive experience with Lithium minerals & chemicals, electronic/portable devices, electromobility and grid storage.
