About Global Lithium Market

Lithium is the lightest metal and solid element, with atomic number 3. It is not a naturally occurring element but is present in compounds such as lithium hydroxide, lithium carbonate, and lithium chloride. It is used in numerous industries and applications, including ceramics and glass industries, where it is used as a flux for processing silica.

Investments in the generation of energy from renewable sources, such as solar and wind, have increased rapidly over the past five years, which is leading to a higher requirement for energy storage devices. Li-ion batteries are extensively used in energy storage devices, which are a vital component for solar and wind-based electricity generation plants. This is because these energy sources produce electricity intermittently, which requires energy storage devices for storing and subsequently distributing electricity to the nearest grid.

New Report Released: Global Lithium Category - Procurement Market Intelligence Report 2017-2021.

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key suppliers in the Global Lithium Category - Procurement Market Intelligence Report: Albemarle, SQM, FMC, Tianqi Lithium, and Ganfeng Lithium.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One of the best procurement practices for the buyers is to enter into exclusive agreements with suppliers to ensure continuity of supply over longer durations.”

According to the report, a major growth driver of this market is the rise in investments in the generation of energy from renewable sources, such as solar and wind, leading to a higher requirement for energy storage devices.

Further, the report states that a key procurement challenge faced by buyers is the difficulty in locating suppliers that can provide uninterrupted supply. The buyers continuously face problems of interruptions in supply due to issues such as labor unrest, unfavorable climatic conditions, and accidents at lithium extraction facilities.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains actionable insights to improve source-to-contract cycle performance in addition to a PESTLE analysis.
