Growth Of Rare Earth Metals Market 2012 – 2018
Overview of Rare Earth Metals Market
Rare earth metals are set of seventeen chemical elements, especially fifteen lanthanides, plus scandium and yttrium. The set includes lanthanum, gadolinium, holmium, praseodymium, cerium, samarium, neodymium, promethium, dysprosium, terbium, thulium, europium, erbium, ytterbium, and lutetium. These are further classified into heavy earth metals and light rare earth metals. The heavy set is inclusive of yttrium, gadolinium, europium, terbium, holmium, dysprosium, thulium, erbium, ytterbium, and lutetium, while the light set includes lanthanum, praseodymium, cerium, promethium, neodymium, and samarium. Despite termed as rare, these metals are used in most of the day-to-day items such as DVD’s, fluorescent lighting, cell phones, rechargeable batteries, magnets, computer memory, and car catalytic converters.

What Lies Ahead
The rare earth metal reserves are concentrated mostly in China, followed by Russia, United States, Australia, and India. Owing to high reserves in the region, China nearly accounts for 95% of the total global rare earth metal production and consumption. According to statistics provided by analysts, the rare earth metal market revenue stood at $ 3.4 billion in 2011. The forecast for this industry suggests this figure will grow at a CAGR of 13% from 2012 to 2018. The growth in rare earth metals market depends on the type of metal too. The one expected to do solid business in the coming years is cerium.
Cerium is widely used in fast growing applications such as magnets and metallurgy. This metal is followed by lanthanum, neodymium and others. Despite cerium’s popular usage, scandium wins in terms of revenue, which is followed closely by neodymium, dysprosium and others.
