[Research Report] The lithium compounds market is expected to grow from US$ 6.3 billion in 2021 to US$ 25.1 billion by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 22.0% between 2022 and 2028.

The consumer electronics and automotive industry has been flourishing rapidly over the years. The increase in demand for mobile phones, cameras, laptops, electronic toys, wireless headphones, handheld power tools, small and large appliances, electric vehicles, and electrical energy storage systems that are powered through lithium-ion batteries is propelling the need for lithium-ion batteries, which is fueling the lithium compounds market growth. 


Lithium is a silver-white alkali metal generally extracted from ores and mineral springs. It is a mixture of the isotopes Li6 and Li7, which are corrosive and burn with a white flame. It has the lowest density of all the metals and forms organic and inorganic compounds like oxide, nitride, carbide, hydride, and hydroxide. These compounds are widely utilized in various industrial applications, such as the manufacturing of ceramics, nuclear materials, glass, pharmaceuticals, and batteries. Moreover, lithium compounds are versatile and find extensive applications in various end use industries, such as li-ion batteries, glass, ceramics, lubricants, metallurgy, polymers, and air treatment. All these aforementioned factors are propelling the market growth.


The "Global Lithium Compounds Market Forecast to 2028"  report aims to provide an overview of the lithium compounds market with detailed market segmentation based on derivative and end use. The report provides key statistics based on the performance of the leading market players. It also offers key trends and opportunities in the lithium compounds market.
