Samarium Cobalt Magnets Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Forecast and Opportunity 2018-2023

A type of rare earth magnet, Samarium Cobalt (SmCo) magnets are made of samarium, cobalt and iron. Developed in the early 1970’s and 80’s, they are known for their high magnetic strength and high resistance to corrosion. These magnets have excellent thermal stability and can withstand very high operating temperatures. Being very strong and brittle, they require proper handling and packing. Samarium Cobalt magnets can, however, be more susceptible to chipping and cracking, as a result, they need to be stored in a low humidity and mild temperature. These magnets are currently used for certain niche applications, particularly in the defence and aerospace sectors. According to IMARC group, the global samarium cobalt magnets market has grown at a CAGR of around 4% during 2010-2017, reaching a value of 462 Million in 2017.

IMARC’s latest study “Samarium Cobalt Magnets Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Forecast and Opportunity 2018-2023” has segmented the market on the basis of major regions. At present, China represents both the largest producer as well as the largest consumer of SmCo magnets accounting for more than 71% of the total global consumption. One of the key factors making China the biggest producer of these magnets is the fact that it has a monopoly over the raw materials that are used to produce them. As a result, many dependent industries have set up their plants in China so as to have a cost advantage. China is followed by the United States and Europe.
