Lithium Mining Market Demand is expected to grow at a rapid pace owing to growing production of electric vehicles & electronic products

With lithium reserves in Australia, the country is emerging as an attractive market for electric vehicles. The world’s second-largest economy will continue experiencing an increase of this valuable mineral due to increasing productivity within the industry

/EIN News/ — NEWARK, Del, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global lithium mining market is anticipated to reach US$ 3.3 Bn by 2031, according to a recent report by Future Market Insights (FMI). Over the projection period of 2021–2031, rising demand for lithium ion batteries from end-use industries such as automotive, packaging, and consumer electronics is anticipated to drive lithium sales.

Due to benefits like a longer lifespan, increased fuel efficiency, and low discharge rates, lithium is frequently used to make batteries for electric vehicles. In the upcoming years, it is projected that rising sales of electric vehicles would increase demand for lithium, which will in turn accelerate expansion of the worldwide lithium mining industry.

In addition, increasing packaging sector demand for glass and ceramics would probably open up new business prospects for major companies in the lithium mining market. Pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, and other things are typically packaged in glass and ceramic. Lithium will continue to find more uses in the glass and ceramics industries, which will enhance the market for lithium mining’s growth prospects.

In 2020, the global lithium mining market was heavily impacted by the novel coronavirus pandemic. Nationwide lockdowns, travel restrictions, and halted on mining operations hampered the production and consumption of lithium. However, sales are expected to recover in 2021 as demand for lithium from the automotive sector continues to grow.

“Growing focus on fuel efficiency in automotive vehicles is expected to propel consumption of lithium for batteries in the forthcoming years. Besides this, increasing sales of wearables and portable consumer electronics will continue augmenting growth of the lithium mining market through 2031,” says an FMI analyst.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lithium production through brine solutions is expected to capture 65% of the total lithium mining market share.
  • The lithium hydroxide segment is projected to account for a dominant share over the forecast period.
  • Applications of lithium in the battery segment are projected to grow at 8.5% year-over-year in 2021.
  • Sales of lithium in the U.S. are projected to grow by 3.2% year-over year in 2021.
  • Australia will emerge as an attractive market owing to the presence of high-capacity lithium reserves in the country.
  • China will continue experiencing high demand for lithium due to increasing production and sales of consumer electronics.
