April 04, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "North America Lithium Compound Market Report by Type (Lithium Carbonate, Lithium Hydroxide, Lithium Concentrate, Lithium Metal, Lithium Chloride, Butyllithium, and Others), End-Use (Batteries, Glass and Glass Ceramics, Automotive Parts, Greases, Metallurgy, Polymer, Air Treatment, and Others), and Country 2024-2032," the North America lithium compound market size reached 68,008.2 Tons LCE in 2023. Lithium compounds refer to chemical compounds that contain lithium as one of their constituents. They are used in various applications, such as the medical treatment of the bipolar disorder, air conditioning systems, and the production of lithium greases. They are also employed in the production of rechargeable batteries that are used in electronic devices, such as cell phones, laptops, and electric vehicles. Besides this, lithium compounds are extensively utilized in the manufacturing of lubricants, pharmaceuticals, batteries, and chemicals, across the North American region.

North America Lithium Compound Market Trends:

At present, the escalating demand for lithium-ion batteries in various electronic devices, such as cell phones, tablets, laptops, electric toothbrushes, tools, and hoverboards, represents one of the key factors positively influencing the market in the North American region. In line with this, the easy availability of these electronic devices through online and offline distribution channels are propelling the market growth. Moreover, governing agencies across the region are promoting the use of renewable energy sources to reduce carbon emissions, which is catalyzing the demand for lithium compounds in energy storage applications. Apart from this, rising environmental concerns due to the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from traditional internal combustion engines are contributing to the sales of electric vehicles (EVs), which, in turn, is increasing the demand for lithium compounds in the North American region. Additionally, the growing adoption of lithium-ion batteries in multi-shift cold storage operations due to fast charging and no battery swaps is creating a favorable market outlook. Furthermore, declining prices of lithium, subsidies and financial incentives for lithium-ion battery manufacturers, and the burgeoning automotive industry are stimulating the growth of the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a volume of 169,919.3 Tons LCE by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.4% during 2024-2032.
