Global Lithium Market 2015-2019

About Lithium
Lithium is a chemical element used for psychiatric medication and is recovered from three types of deposits: brines, pegmatites, and sedimentary rocks. It is extracted from brines in the form of lithium chloride. These brines are found mostly in salt flats or salt lakes. One of the commercially exploited hard rock minerals is spodumene. Lithium and its derivative compounds are used in many applications such as batteries, ceramics and glass, lubricants, metallurgical, air treatment, polymers, and other applications.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Lithium market to grow at a CAGR of 11.12 percent over the period 2014-2019.
