Lithium Iodide Market: Key Takeaways

  • Market in North America to propel highest growth
  • The electrolyte segment to garner the highest growth
  • Market in Asia Pacific to grow at the highest rate

Increasing Demand for Electric Vehicles across the Globe to Boost Market Growth

In China, the EU, and the United States, the average share in total sales of electric vehicles is anticipated to be nearly 60% by 2030. Lithium-ion batteries are the preferred choice for electric vehicles due to their high energy density, long cycle life, and lightweight nature. The demand for lithium-ion batteries is expected to climb elevenfold between 2020 and 2030, accounting for more than 2 terawatt-hours by the end of year 2030. Lithium iodide can be used as an electrolyte additive in lithium-sulfur batteries. 

Moreover, the addition of lithium iodide to the electrolyte improves the overall performance, stability, and cycling life of batteries, enabling their commercial viability. By 2030, the global nuclear capacity must increase by approximately 10 GW per year. Moreover, nuclear energy might provide approximately 14% of global electricity by 2050, up from 10% currently. In nuclear reactors, specifically designs of molten salt reactors (MSRs), lithium, is used as a component in the coolant or fuel salt. The lithium component helps in regulating the reactivity and temperature within the reactor.

Lithium Iodide Market: Regional Overview

The market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa region.

Expanding Pharmaceutical Research and Development to Drive Market Growth in the North America Region

The market for lithium iodide in the North American region is estimated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2035. The rising manufacturing units of lithium iodide in the region are driving lithium iodide market growth in the region. For instance, SQM, a Chilean lithium and iodine manufacturer, has submitted to the environmental assessment service SEA a USD 987 million project to expand the lithium capacity of its Carmen plant. By adopting new technology, the business hopes to raise the plant’s lithium production to 270,000t/y by 2024.

Research and development in the pharmaceutical sector, particularly in the field of thyroid disorders and radiographic contrast agents, could drive the demand for lithium iodide. The use of lithium iodide in certain types of nuclear reactors for cooling and neutron absorption could see growth with advancements in nuclear technology. Advances in materials science and chemistry could lead to new applications or improved formulations involving lithium iodide.
