Salt Lake Battery Grade Lithium Carbonate Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (99.5 % , >99.5 % ), By Application (Power Battery, 3C battery, Others) and Regional Forecast 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103466 | Status : Ongoing



Lithium carbonate Li2CO3 is an important engineering chemical. It is widely used mostly in chemical batteries. Salt Lake Battery Grade Lithium Carbonate is type of Lithium carbonate that is extracted from Salars which basically are brine water sources. Almost 87 % of the lithium is extracted from the Salars. Salars have the highest concentration of lithium nearly 1,000 to 3,000 ppm.

Increasing demand for salt lake battery grade lithium carbonate from electronics industry is likely to drive the market. Additionally, the inexpensive extraction process as compared to land mining is turning to be an advantage which shall foster the market growth.

However, the brine mining method is upfront but it is a time-consuming process that involves natural evaporation. It may take 8 months to 3 years of time for evaporation. This is expected to hinder the market growth. However, the scientists are developing new methods to overcome this drawback which can turn out to be an opportunity.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing demand for Lithium batteries from electronics industry.

Key Market Restraint -

Time consuming method for extraction.
