Global Lithium Hydroxide Market: By Applications (Li-Ion Batteries, glass & ceramics, medical, lubricants, metallurgy, polymers and others); By Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-pacific and Rest of the world) - Forecasts till 2020
Lithium hydroxide has its application across industries such as li-ion batteries, lubricants, air treatment, and mining. The higher grade lithium concentrate with low iron content is primarily used in the glass & ceramics industry.
The chemical grade lithium concentrate is used in lithium batteries. Lithium hydroxide is an inorganic compound that is soluble in water. Based on purity, it is also available in technical grade and battery grade. The technical grade lithium hydroxide is obtained from the hard rock mines, which is found primarily in Australia.
The market is growing at a CAGR of 10.58% between 2015 and 2020. Lithium hydroxide is mainly used in industrial lubricant, active cathode in batteries, etc. Also, due to better properties than other concentrates, it is mostly preferred for new battery technologies. Moreover, there is a potential market for lithium hydroxide for use in rechargeable battery industry.
Lithium hydroxide is used to manufacture industrial lubricants. Lubricating greases enhance the performance in transportation equipment and other industrial application. The market is driven by strong focus of the manufacturers to expand in the lubricants market in the region. On the other hand, market in North America is primarily driven by the growth in industries such as automotive, construction, etc.
