A magnet refers to any material that produces a magnetic field and is capable of attracting iron, nickel and cobalt and objects containing these metals. It is made of a group of materials called ferromagnetic metals, such as nickel and iron, which have the unique property of being able to be magnetized uniformly. Over the years, the demand for magnets has escalated around the world as they are used in a wide range of devices used today, from air-conditioners and washing machines to speakers and hybrid cars.
Magnets are used in various home appliances such as refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, lawnmowers and garden tractors. They also play a critical role in the functioning of multiple medical devices, particularly magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines, hearing aids, and ventricular assist devices (VAD). Besides this, their strong magnetic strength allows for significant product miniaturization, improved product performance and reduced manufacturing costs. Apart from this, the reduction in the emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases in line with the Kyoto Protocol is rapidly emerging as a major global agenda. Owing to this, governments of various countries are focusing on using energy-saving technologies and devices that can help them in reducing their carbon footprints. Moreover, manufacturers have introduced magnetic levitation (maglev), a relatively new transportation technology, in which non contacting vehicles travel safely at a speed of 250 to 300 miles-per-hour or higher while suspended, guided and propelled above a guideway by magnetic fields. This technology has the potential to grow in the near future, thereby creating a strong demand for magnets.
