Rare earth elements in high-tech industries with an emphasis on semiconductors, HDDs, LCDs, consumer products and green technology

DUBLIN,, April 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – “Rare Earth Elements in High-Tech Industries: Market Analysis and Forecasts in the Middle China Trade Embargo “the report of the Information Network was added ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offer.

Rare earth elements (REE) are a group of 15-17 elements containing lanthanides (atomic numbers 57-71) plus yttrium and scandium. Rare countries have a number of specific optical, magnetic and catalytic properties that drive demand in a wide range of applications. However, in terms of quantity, permanent magnets and catalysts make up more than half of the global demand. The weighting towards permanent magnets is even higher when looking at a value perspective, with some estimates that the app accounted for over 90% of demand for rare earths in 2020. As such, it is a key driver of the market.

The structural shift towards a green economy is an important driver of our bullish view of rare earth prices. In particular, the growing shift to electric vehicles (EVs) is expected to lead to a significant increase in demand for rare earths, especially neodymium. Adding 2 kg of REE in the form of a rare ground drive to electric vehicles results in engine efficiency 2-5% higher than alternatives, which saves energy over its lifetime. Because it is more efficient, the target range for EV is achieved with a smaller, lighter and cheaper battery, which is critical given that the battery accounts for about 50% of EV costs.

The RE supply chain includes everything from mining and separation to alloying, metal making and eventual production of catalysts, magnets, etc. Although mining is relatively simple, the separation of concentrates to oxides is not, reflecting both financial and technical barriers to separation, plus environmental impacts. As a result, the vast majority of LREE separation is performed in china, with the significant exception of Lynas’ Malaysian facility and the facility that will soon be put into operation by MP Material. All HREE separation is done in china. This monopoly on separation led to China the dominance of metal, alloy and magnet production downstream, and while countries like the US could change that, China the status reflects two decades of investment and the undeniable position of market leader in terms of rare earth reserves. In the next section, we cover global reserves, mine supply, key manufacturers and projects, as well as some of the key magnet manufacturers.
