The physics of gluon saturation and non-linear evolution at small values of parton momentum fraction x in the proton and nucleus is discussed in the context of experimental results at HERA and RHIC. The rich physics potential of low-x QCD studies at the LHC is discussed and some measurements in pp, pA and AA collisions accessible with the compact muon solenoid (CMS) experiment are presented.
