Rare Earth Metals Market Drivers and Trends: –
Rare Earth Metals Market Driver: – One driver in market is elevated usage in direct-drive turbines for wind energy production. Wind energy has become one of the most recognized, cost-effective, and clean solutions for generating electricity. A clean alternative to non-renewable fuels, wind energy farms provide an alternative method to generate electricity and reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. Wind energy generation is expected to be one of the fastest-growing markets in the future because of growing federal incentives for renewable energy production and easing regulations. Wind turbines involve the use of large gear boxes for generating electricity. Conventional gear-driven turbines are being replaced by direct-drive permanent magnet generators because of the latter’s efficiency and lesser downtime during maintenance. Some direct-drive turbines are as much as 25%-30% more efficient than gear-driven turbines. A typical large wind turbine generator requires nearly two tons of high-strength magnets that are usually alloys of boron, iron, and didymium metal. Each MW of turbine uses about half a ton of permanent magnet and in turn involves the use of 150-200 kg of didymium metal, which is a mixture of praseodymium, dysprosium, and neodymium.
Rare Earth Metals Market trend: – One trend in market is rise in production capacities and emergence of alternative suppliers. Lucrative trade and the growing demand for rare earth metals has resulted due to the intense evaluation of domestic reserves for exploitation and leveraging them for strategic uses by several countries. This is being encouraged by large rare earth metal consuming nations in order to leverage their supply risks. Technavio observes an increased investment in this sector in India, South Africa, Brazil, Australia, Canada, Vietnam, and Malaysia. These countries are likely to emerge as reliable alternative suppliers to China. New developments in North America (mainly Canada), Australia, and Africa are contributing to the new rare earth element resources. Japan has committed huge investments in these nations in order to reduce its import dependence on China. Most of the mines currently being developed are expected to come on-stream by 2017-2020. Therefore, Technavio expects a further drop in the supply share of China

Rare earth metals comprise 17 chemical elements in the periodic table, which include fifteen elements of the lanthanide series, and scandium and yttrium. Scandium and yttrium are also considered rare earth metals as they are found in the same mineral ore deposits as the other elements of the lanthanide series. Rare earth metals have unique physical and chemical properties, which make them suitable to alloy with other metals in applications that require properties such as enhanced magnetic strength and high-temperature resistance.
