About the Lithium Market Lithium is recovered from brine, pegmatites, and sedimentary rocks. It is extracted from brine in the form of lithium chloride. Lithium is derived from spodumene, a commercially exploited hard rock mineral, through acid fusion. Lithium and its derivative compounds are used in many end-use segments such as batteries, ceramics and glass, lubricants, metallurgy, air treatment, and polymers. In addition, lithium compounds are used as psychiatric medication. Technavio's analysts forecast the global lithium market to grow at a CAGR of 7.84% during the period 2016-2020.
