CHICAGO, April 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the new market research report "Rare-Earth Metals Marketby (Lanthanum, Cerium, Neodymium, Praseodymium, Samarium, Europium, & Others), and Application (Permanent Magnets, Metals Alloys, Polishing, Additives, Catalysts, Phosphors), Region – Global Forecast to 2026", published by MarketsandMarkets™, the Rare-Earth Metals Market is projected to grow from USD 5.3 billion in 2021 to USD 9.6 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 12.33% during the forecast period.
The increasing use of rare-earth elements that are used in the permanent magnet application are likely to drive the rare-earth metals market. APAC is the fastest-growing market for rare-earth metals due to increase in production and consumption in China. Significant usage of permanent magnets offer a huge impetus to these advanced materials, are expected to drive the rare-earth metals market in the region.
The Neodymium Oxide segment is projected to lead the global rare-earth metals market through 2026
Neodymium oxide is used to produce magnets which are found in most modern vehicles and aircraft as well as popular consumer electronics, such as headphones, microphones, and computer discs . It is used in high-strength permanent magnets that are also known as neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) magnets and are one of the strongest magnets in the world. Incresing use of Clean energy application has driven the market.
The Phosphors segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
The Phosphors segment, by application, is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Phosphors used in many applications that require color in the light exhibited, namely, cathode ray tube displays, fluorescent lamps, and other applications. The important elements in this sector are europium, terbium, and yttrium. Phosphors are used to convert the incident radiation into the light of designed colors. This is based on the properties of the elements that are included in the phosphors. The demand for rare-earth oxide phosphor products is expected to increase, due to the government policies in US, Canada, China, among other countries, and the European Union, where the incandescent lamps are being replaced with fluorescent and LED lamps.
The Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest share in the rare-earth metals market during the forecast period
APAC is the top region in terms of total rare-earth material consumption due to rapidly increasing demand in China, which accounts for maximum global rare-earth consumption. It was the largest consumer of rare-earth elements in 2019, with an estimated market revenue of over USD 5.2 billion. The region is also expected to witness the fastest-growth in terms of consumption due to growing industrialization and extraction activities in China.
Key players operating in the rare-earth material market are Lynas Corporation (Australia), Alkane Resources ltd (Australia), Arafura Resources Ltd (Australia), China Minmetals Rare Earth Co Ltd (China), Avalon Advanced Materials, Inc (Canada), Iluka Resource Ltd (Australia), Canada Rare Earth Corporation (Canada). These players have adopted various growth strategies to expand their global presence and increase their market share.
