Lithium Hydroxide (LiOH) is widely used as an industrial lubricant, and in battery manufacturing. The compound is mainly consumed for production of lithium greases such as lithium stearate, which is very popular lubricating grease and offers high thermal resistance. In battery industry, it is incorporated as a heat transfer medium and for the purpose of storage battery electrolyte. Due to indispensable usage of lithium hydroxide in these industries, and difficulty in manufacturing and sourcing, the products commands significantly high prices and is sold at prices between US$ 6000 – US$ 8000 per ton. The lack of supply and booming demand is expected to continue push prices towards higher end. Moreover, many new capacity additions from prominent suppliers is also anticipated over the forecast period. The global demand for lithium hydroxide is expected to expand with a decent CAGR over the forecast period.

Global Lithium Hydroxide Market: Region Wise Outlook
The global Lithium Hydroxide market is segmented into the seven key regions: North America, Latin America, Western Europe, and Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific Excluding Japan (APEJ), Japan and Middle East and Africa (MEA). The APEJ region is projected to be the largest market for lithium hydroxide consumption, followed by North America, Western Europe and Japan. Rapidly growing power industry of Asia Pacific and increasing penetration of more and more manufacturing companies in the region, are the prime factor driving more demand for lithium hydroxide in the region. The setting up of Tesla Gigafactory in the US is another prime factor driving demand in the North American market. The Latin America and MEA are at a nascent considering the demand for lithium hydroxide, however the regions are projected to pose significant growth rate over the forecast period. Japan on the other hand is anticipated to continue driving more demand for lithium hydroxide, amid rising solar industry in the region.
