Global Rare Earth Magnet Market to Grow at 5.88% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Significant Growth in Automotive Sector

Published on Jul 09, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Rare Earth Magnet Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global rare earth magnet market size reached US$ 16.4 Billion in 2021. Rare earth magnets are a type of permanent magnets that are made from alloys of rare earth elements. These magnets are ferromagnetic in nature and can be magnetized like iron. They are characterized by higher magnetic field strength and magnetic stability when compared with ferrite or alnico magnets. This aids in product miniaturization, enhancing product performance and minimizing overall manufacturing costs. Since they are also extremely brittle and prone to corrosion, they are most commonly coated or plated with other metals to avoid chipping, breaking or crumbling into powder. These magnets are combined with various transition metals, including iron, nickel and cobalt, to improve their natural magnetic properties. They are widely used in the manufacturing of printers, motors, microphones, separators and automotive starters.

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.
