Rare Earth Magnet Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

The global rare earth magnet market reached a value of US$ 14.4 Billion in 2020. Rare-earth magnets refer to a type of permanent magnets which are made from the alloys of rare earth elements. They generate strong magnetic fields that assist in product miniaturization, improving product performance and reducing manufacturing costs. As these magnets are brittle and prone to corrosion, they are generally plated or coated to avert breaking, chipping or crumbling into powder. Owing to their numerous advantages, they find applications in the manufacturing of motors, separators, printers, microphones, automotive starters, acoustic transducers and computer disc drives.

Earlier, the application of rare earth magnets was largely confined to the motors and automotive industry. However, the global rare earth magnet market has recently experienced a rise in the demand from several new industries such as electronics, medical devices and actuators manufacturing. Moreover, on account of rapid urbanization, industrialization, growing penetration of electricity and increasing levels of automation in several industries, the electric motor industry is experiencing moderate growth. As the motor industry represents one of the largest end-users of rare earth magnets, this growth is creating a positive impact on their demand. Apart from this, expansion of the wind energy generation plants on account of the growing population and increasing demand for electricity is anticipated to boost the market growth in the upcoming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global rare earth magnet market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.

Breakup by Magnet Type:

Neodymium-Iron-Boron (NdFeB) Magnets
