Markets

 

Market demand for lithium products is largely driven by the increase in use of rechargeable batteries in portable electronic devices and electric transportation.

Lithium-ion batteries provide power for cell phones, smartphones, tablets, laptop computers, power tools, and many other mobile consumer devices. Larger format lithium-ion batteries provide power for electric cars, scooter, electric bikes, buses, forklifts and other forms of transportation.

New applications for lithium are emerging in the areas of grid energy storage, solar and nuclear energy generation, and other industrial uses. Extensive new lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant capital expenditures currently underway are viewed as a positive indicator of future lithium demand.
