"Despite uncertainties regarding worldwide GDPs growth for 2012, the lithium industry continues to show signs of strong growth. Batteries will continue driving the growth of the lithium industry: We estimate that the use of lithium in batteries will reach about 45,000 tones this year, 20.5% more that in 2011. Other applications will also show interesting growth rates: the use of lithium in lubricating greases (in the form of lithium hydroxide) will grow about 5 - 6% this year while the use of lithium in frits and glass will reach around 38,500 tones from 37,000 tones in 2011. On the supply side, 2012 will be a crucial year: several projects are going to commence production at pilot scale, while others will complete their feasibility analysis. New projects will be added to the portfolio mainly in Chile because the government is going to put out to tender 100,000 tones as Li. In this context, prices should remain stable since new capacity is being added (mainly in Australia) in order to satisfy new demand."
