Report Details

Rare earths are also known as technology metal, because without the use of rare earths it would not be possible to make the latest digital technology products. Although rare earths are used in small quantities, their role is pivotal. Unlike other elements, the rare earths industry is dominated by China, which accounted for 95.3% of the total global production. However, the global market for rare earths is expected to be $18.3bn in 2012.

It is expected that the global rare earths market value will decline during the forecast period due to falling prices of rare earths. The recent downward spiral in the rare earths prices will continue during the forecast period. 

Having said that, Visiongain understands that in case of any increase in the Chinese rare earths' export quota or delays in production from the planned rare earths projects, this will send the prices of rare earths upward, and so the market value. 

The report contains 304 tables, charts and graphs that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends within the rare earths market. Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2012-2022 in terms of value (US$) and tonnages for the global rare earths market, as well as for eight end-use sectors (catalysts, glass, polishing, metal alloys, magnets, phosphors, ceramics, others) of the rare earths market. In addition, 12 leading national markets are forecasted and analysed by Visiongain over the period 2012-2022. The report also provides profiles of 16 leading companies in the rare earths market, and includes five exclusive interviews with principal rare earths companies, providing expert insight alongside Visiongain analysis.
