Global Lithium Hydroxide Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Lithium hydroxide is a white, odorless solid that is soluble in water. It can be used to produce lithium carbonate, which is used in the production of lithium batteries. Lithium hydroxide is also used as an absorbent for gases and vapors.

Industrial Grade:

Industrial grade is a high purity form of lithium hydroxide that has been processed to remove impurities and is used as an ingredient in the manufacturing of glass, ceramics, and other industrial products. It can also be used as a de-icing agent for roadways during adverse weather conditions.

Battery Grade:

Battery grade is a product that is used in lithium hydroxide market. It’s an intermediate chemical which acts as a precursor for manufacturing battery cell and battery packs. Battery grade can be segmented into two types on the basis of its usage in the lithium hydroxide market, namely “Primary Battery Grade” and “Secondary Battery Grade”.

Application Insights:

The consumer electronics segment accounted for a revenue share of over 30% in 2017. The growth can be attributed to the growing demand for smartphones and laptops across the globe. Increasing disposable income has also positively influenced the market growth. Growing usage of lithium hydroxide in manufacturing batteries is expected to drive demand over the forecast period, especially from China, which is one of the largest producers and consumers of such batteries globally.

Traffic application was estimated as one of the major applications owing to its rising use in friction products such as brake pads, clutch plates and transmission components among others worldwide since its introduction about 100 years ago.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global lithium hydroxide market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The presence of key manufacturers such as Panasonic, Sanyo, and Samsung coupled with rising demand from end-use industries such as consumer electronics, automotive and others are some of the major factors contributing to regional growth.

The growing adoption of electric vehicles across various countries including China, India, South Korea has increased the demand for lithium ion batteries which in turn is anticipated to drive industry growth over the forecast period. In addition Lithium Ion battery prices have been declining steadily which has resulted into an increase in their applications across several end-use sectors thereby driving regional growth.

North America accounted for a significant share owing to increasing R&D activities on energy storage devices along with rising government support aimed at reducing carbon footprint associated with conventional fossil fuel based power plants leading to an increase in renewable energy projects thus positively influencing industry growth over the projected period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for lithium ion batteries in electric vehicles and portable electronics
  • Growing demand from the glass and ceramics industries
  • Rising production of aluminum-lithium alloys
  • Growing use of lithium hydroxide in pharmaceuticals and other industrial applications
  • Limited global supply of lithium, which is expected to drive prices higher
