Global Rare Earth Elements Market to Reach US$ 34.3 Billion by 2032, Augmented by Increasing Sales of Consumer Electronics

April 10, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Rare Earth Elements Market Report by Application (Magnets, NiMH Batteries, Auto Catalysts, Diesel Engines, Fluid Cracking Catalyst, Phosphers, Glass, Polishing Powders, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global rare earth elements market size reached US$ 11.0 Billion in 2023. Rare earth elements (REEs) are a group of seventeen chemical elements that are found in the crust of the earth and exhibit similar properties. They comprise lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium, promethium, europium, gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium, and lutetium. They are soft, malleable, ductile, good conductors of heat and electricity, and have high melting and boiling points. They are highly reactive and readily form compounds with other elements to produce hydrogen gas. They offer high electrical conductivity, enhance heat resistance, improve magnetism, and weight reduction. They are used in the manufacturing of lighting, such as incandescent, fluorescent, and light-emitting diode (LED) lights. They are also utilized in the production of pigments and coatings. 

Global Rare Earth Elements Market Trends:

The increasing sales of electronic products, such as smartphones, laptops, coffee makers, grillers, toasters, microwaves, gaming consoles, computers, and smart wearables, represent one of the major factors driving the demand for REEs around the world. Moreover, there is a considerable rise in the use of REEs in renewable energy sources, such as solar panels and wind turbines. This, coupled with the growing electricity needs and generation, is influencing the market positively. In addition, there is an increase in the demand for hybrid and electric vehicles (H/EVs) due to rapid urbanization, improving living standards, and inflating income levels. This, along with measures undertaken by governments of numerous countries to minimize greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from vehicles are catalyzing the demand for REEs in the automobile industry. Apart from this, the rising utilization of REEs in various medical devices and equipment, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided and x-ray tubes to diagnose and treat severe chronic diseases is propelling the growth of the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 34.3 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.1% during 2024-2032.
