What is a Ferrite Magnet?
Also known as a ceramic magnet, a ferrite magnet is made from a combination of iron oxide and various other metallic elements, such as barium, strontium, and lead. It is brittle and possesses a high magnetic permeability and resistance to demagnetization. It also offers high coercivity and low magnetic losses. It is more cost-effective and offers lower production costs than neodymium magnets. Moreover, it provides stable magnetic performance and is not affected by external factors, such as temperature, humidity, and vibration. It is widely used in small motors and generators due to high coercivity and low magnetic losses. It is also employed in speakers and headphones to convert electrical energy into sound waves. At present, the ferrite magnet is widely available in the form of rings, discs, cylinders, and blocks and utilized in various applications, including electro-acoustic products, power play tools, security machines, magnetic suspension systems, and calculating machines, across the globe.
The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak caused severe problems for the ferrite magnet industry and imposed unprecedented challenges on numerous countries. It also created a severe disturbance in the supply chains, transportation, and various social activities, which resulted in labor shortages and increments in the price of raw materials. This caused a significant drop in the production of ferrite magnet. Moreover, the pandemic also resulted in a decrease in demand for ferrite magnets in the automotive industry. This, coupled with the disruption in global supply chains, caused a decline in the demand for ferrite magnets, which further impacted the market. However, the growing demand for ferrite magnets in the healthcare industry for medical devices, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines and medical implants, has partially offset the decline in demand from other industries.
Ferrite Magnet Market Trends:
Inflating disposable incomes and the increasing adoption of consumer electronics, such as smartphones, laptops, and televisions, represent one of the key factors catalyzing the demand for ferrite magnets across the globe. In addition, the burgeoning automotive industry and rising utilization of ferrite magnets in the construction of various parts of vehicles, including electric power steering systems, sensors, alternators, generators, electric motors, windshield wipers, and seat belt indicators, are strengthening the growth of the market. Apart from this, ferrite magnets are used in numerous medical equipment, such as magnetic therapy devices, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners, dental braces, and orthodontic appliances, which is bolstering the growth of the market around the world. Moreover, ferrite magnets are used in magnetic bearings, which are further utilized in supporting the weight of large structures, such as bridges and buildings. They also provide a strong and stable support system that is highly resistant to wear and tear. This, in confluence with the increasing investments in the development of infrastructure, is fueling the growth of the market. Besides this, the widespread adoption of ferrite magnets as one of the most cost-effective types of permanent magnets is offering lucrative growth opportunities to manufacturers for reducing costs and achieving the required level of magnetic performance. Additionally, rising environmental concerns is increasing the adoption of ferrite magnets as they do not contain rare earth elements, which are expensive and have negative environmental impacts. Moreover, the widespread adoption of ferrite magnets in generators and turbines for wind power and hydroelectric power applications, in confluence with a significant shift towards renewable energy sources, is creating a favorable market outlook. In addition, ongoing technological advancements and new manufacturing processes and applications for ferrite magnets are fueling the market growth. Besides this, increasing investments in research and development (R&D) to provide high quality permanent magnet is creating a positive market outlook. Furthermore, rapid industrialization and urbanization, improving logistics, and an abundance of raw materials for ferrite production are stimulating the growth of the market around the world.
