COVID-19 impact on Rare-Earth Metals Market:

Several countries' factories were forced to close during the early stages of the epidemic as governments imposed severe lockdowns to prevent the virus from spreading. Rare-earth metals manufacturers were allowed to continue manufacturing operations when the lockdown was ended and limitations were loosened, but only in limited capacity and subject to a number of laws and regulations.

Rare-Earth Metals Market Dynamics:

Rising demand of end-user industry: The main rare earth elements used in permanent magnet applications are neodymium, praseodymium, dysprosium, terbium, and yttrium. These metals have special characteristics, such as remanence and high coercivity, which can prevent permanent magnets from losing their magnetism even if they are used for a long time. These magnets are mainly used in the automotive market, and their demand depends on this market. Rare earth permanent magnets can be used in traditional cars and hybrid vehicles. In the long run, the application of rare earth magnets in wind turbines is expected to become another major growth market. The latest direct-drive wind turbines use rare earth magnets to remove the gearbox from the turbine, greatly reducing weight and maintenance issues. Due to its excellent performance to size ratio and strong magnetic strength, rare-earth magnets are widely employed in important consumer and industrial electronic applications, such as Smartphone’s, acoustic speakers, and hard disc drives. In the next five to ten years, the use of rare-earth metals in permanent magnets is expected to grow by 12% to 14%. New Recycling and reuse of rare-earth metals: Until new uses are discovered, rare earth metals are relatively cheap. The substantial spike in metal prices has created a gap in the supply and demand chain for rare earth metals. Metals were not as essential in the prior five years. Therefore, due to the inconsistency of demand and supply, many of them are wasted. At present, the situation of rare earth metals is different. Many key industries, including green technology and national defense, use large amounts of rare earth metals. Recycling is a method to reduce the criticality of metals and provide a secondary supply of critical metals. The existing rare earth metal recovery rate is less than 5%, which provides an important opportunity for important recovery work. Recycling will not only provide a secondary source of supply, but it will also have a positive impact on the environment by reducing mining. Costs of rare-earth metals fluctuate: As the price of raw materials fluctuates, manufacturers either bear additional costs or increase product prices. The demand for rare earth metals depends on the demand for their applications. In addition, the demand for applications depends on the end-user industry. Therefore, rare earth metals have a dual supply chain, which further increases the final price demand of manufacturers. When the price of raw materials suddenly rises, some manufacturers look for new suppliers to maintain their revenue targets. This usually means sourcing materials from low-cost economies. Switching to a different source of raw materials brings a high risk of disrupting the supply chain.
