As per a recent analysis by Future Market Insights (FMI), the global lithium mining market is projected to top US$ 3.3 Bn by 2031. Growing demand for lithium ion batteries from end-use industries including automotive, packaging and consumer electronics is expected to propel sales of lithium over the forecast period 2021-2031.

Lithium is widely being adopted in the manufacturing batteries for electric vehicles, owing to advantages such as longer lifespan, improved fuel efficiency and low discharge rates. Increasing sales of electric vehicles are anticipated to spur demand for lithium in the forthcoming years, which in turn will augment growth of the global lithium mining market.

Moreover, growing demand for glass and ceramics from the packaging industry is likely to create new opportunities for key players operating in the lithium mining market. Glass and ceramics are mostly used in packaging of pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, and other items. Increasing applications of lithium in the glass and ceramics industry will continue boosting growth prospects of the lithium mining market.

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.

Competitive Landscape

Albemarle, Ganfeng Lithium, Livent, Nemaska Lithium, Orocobre limited, Sichuan Tianqi Lithium Industries, SQM and Lithium Americas Corp. are among the key market players identified by FMI. These players are projected to command 60-70% of the total lithium mining market share.

Leading players operating in the global lithium mining market are focusing on production facility expansion through mergers and acquisitions to gain a competitive edge in the market. For instance:
