Li4UK End Users Market Research


Securing a Domestic Lithium Supply Chain for UK (Li4UK) is a project funded by Innovate UK as part of the UK Government's Faraday Battery Challenge. The Li4UK consortium is comprised of industry professionals from Wardell Armstrong UK, The Natural History Museum and Cornish Lithium.

The demand for lithium compounds used in lithium ion batteries (LIBs) is expected to grow exponentially with the increase in Electric Vehicle (EV) production. Currently the UK, like the rest of Europe, is predominantly dependent upon Chinese supplies of battery grade lithium compounds (e.g. Lithium Carbonate or Lithium Hydroxide) used in the manufacturing of LIBs. The consortium will address a critical missing link in the UK’s battery material supply chain by identifying the requisite processing technologies and possible sources of raw materials needed to develop a sustainable, domestic lithium supply chain.

This questionnaire is for companies involved in lithium chemical, lithium battery, and EV manufacturing. We aim to gather information on desired lithium chemical products for LIB production along with thoughts on current and foreseen gaps in the EV supply chain.
