Global Lithium Derivatives Market  - Overview

Lithium Derivatives market is surging exponentially mainly due to one of its type Lithium ions. Great capacity to store energy makes Lithium ions an ideal component for making rechargeable batteries and grid connected storage. Emergence of electric vehicles that run on Lithium batteries, consumer preference towards rechargeable batteries due to its high drain application coupled with the increased environmental and economic benefits these batteries provide are some of the driving forces increasing the uptake of Lithium batteries that eventually drive growth of Lithium Derivatives market.

Simultaneously, other properties of Lithium Derivatives such as viscosity glass modifiers in the glass melts, high coefficient of thermal expansion, and higher electrochemical potential as compared to other catalytic metal; these derivatives find extensive application in manufacturing of lubricants, Glass & Ceramic items, Polymers and Aluminium Smelting & various alloys.

Attributing to the wide uptake & range of application industries; the market of Lithium Derivatives enjoys a great market traction on the global platform. Furthermore, contribution from the burgeoning consumer electronics industry owing to the consumer preference & adoption of portable devices coupled with the expanding uptake of electric vehicles. Factors as such are expected to provide impetus to the market growth during the review period. 

Recognizing the potential of the market to grow further in the years to come, Market Research Future (MRFR) has published a detailed study report giving out the market forecast for the period 2017 – 2023. In its analysis, MRFR asserts that the global Lithium Derivatives market is expected to reach up to USD 2,074.2 million by 2023 growing at 5.80% CAGR during review period of 2017-2023.

On the other hand, factors such as high initial investment cost & lack of expertise in the lithium extraction activities are expected to restrict the market growth during the assessment period.
