Global Rare Earth Elements Market is Predicted to Reach US$7.3 Billion by 2026, at 10.2% CAGR: Fairfield Market Research

LONDON, April 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Loudspeakers, telescope lenses, studio lighting, and computer hard drives all require rare earth elements to make them smaller and more efficient. Since they can create a variety of hues, they are utilized in screens and displays. These elements have a high electrical conductivity and are found together in nature in the form of minerals. Rare earth elements are the most powerful magnets currently available. As a result, they are used in a wide range of applications, including automobiles, transportation, power generation, construction, medicine, and defence. One of the most important applications for rare earth elements is magnets. Catalysts, ceramics, metallurgy, phosphors, glass and polishing, magnets, and others are the application-based segments of the market. The market is parallelly divided into cerium, neodymium, lanthanum, dysprosium, terbium, yttrium, and scandium, as well as others, per element-type.

Magnets are in high demand in areas including automotive, electronics, and healthcare, which have seen a lot of invention and advancement. Medical equipment such as MRI machines, pacemakers, sleep apnea machines, and insulin pumps all require magnets.

According to Fairfield Market Research’s latest analysis, the global rare earth elements market was worth US$3.5 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand to US$7.3 billion by the end of 2026, a 2x increase in value. According to the analysis, the market would grow at a CAGR of 10.2 percent between 2022 and 2026.
