In recent times, environmental concerns and the consequent rise in demand for electric vehicles has led to higher output and production of lithium. At present, Chile has the largest reserve of lithium, while Australia is the world’s leading producer of lithium.

More than half of lithium produced worldwide is used in the making of rechargeable batteries which is expected to increase further with rise in demand for electric vehicles and portable electronic devices.
