According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Magnet Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the global magnet market size reached US$ 20.7 Billion in 2020. Magnets are materials that are capable of maintaining a magnetic flux in the absence of an applied magnetic field. They produce a magnetic field that can attract iron, nickel and cobalt and other objects containing these metals. They are widely utilized in the manufacturing of numerous devices as they assist in transforming energy from one form to another. As a result, they are extensively employed across numerous sectors for applications in power generation, magnetic sensors, magnetic recording, microwave communications, transportation, and energy conversion.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
