The global lithium ores market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period, from 2021 to 2030. The growth in the market is attributed to the increasing demand for lithium-ion batteries in various applications such as electric vehicles and smartphones. Lithium-ion batteries are used in various applications such as electric vehicles and smartphones due to their high energy density, low weight, long life span, and low maintenance cost. The increasing demand for lithium-ion batteries has led to an increase in the production of these batteries which has increased the demand for lithium ores globally. The global lithium ores market by type is segmented into saline lake lithium and mineral deposits. Saline lake lithium accounts for a major share of this market owing to its high purity levels which make it suitable for battery manufacturing purposes. Mineral deposits account for a minor share of this market owing to their lower purity levels which make them unsuitable for battery manufacturing purposes but are still used as raw materials by chemical industries or other end users such as glass manufacturers or ceramic manufacturers who use them as fluxes or glazes respectively.

Some Of The Growth Factors Of This Market:

  1. Lithium is a key component in the production of batteries for electric vehicles and other electronics.
  2. The demand for lithium is expected to grow as the world moves away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy sources, such as solar power, which require more lithium-ion batteries to store energy.
  3. The global population is also expected to grow by 2050, which will increase demand for lithium ores because of increased consumption of goods and services per capita.
  4. China has been investing heavily in renewable energy sources, which will increase demand for lithium ores in the future as well because China consumes more than half of all global production of these materials today.
  5. Lithium prices have been rising steadily since 2010 due to increased demand from electric vehicle manufacturers like Tesla Motors Inc, BYD Co., and Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
