Rare Earth Metals Market: Drive Factors

The global rare earth metals market is expected to experience rapid revenue growth over the forecast period, primarily driven by the increasing popularity of electronic devices and communication networks worldwide.

Rare earth metals are composed of 17 different metallic components, including 15 isotopes on the periodic table, as well as scandium and yttrium, which have physicochemical properties similar to the isotopes. These minerals are used in a wide range of current technologies, including home appliances, network hardware, telecommunications, medical services, and homeland security due to their unique magnetic, optical, and electrochemical properties.

Rare earth metals and alloys containing them are used in many modern gadgets, including memory chips, DVDs, rechargeable batteries, smartphones, turbochargers, magnets, fluorescent lights, and many more. These compounds are used in the manufacture of many rechargeable batteries, and pocket electronic gadgets such as cell phones, readers, portable laptops, and cameras boost demand for batteries. They are also widely used in the production of catalysts, cathode rays, and refining compounds. These are used to manage air pollution, brighten electronic device monitors, and polish optical-quality glass. The elements are critical to military security for manufacturing night-vision spectacles, precision-guided weaponry, networking devices, GPS systems, batteries, and other defense technologies used by the military.

Increasing acceptance of modern technologies, growing demand for batteries and stable equipment due to rapid industrialization, and rising electronics industries are some key factors expected to drive revenue growth of the rare earth metals market. Rare earth metals are used to make a wide variety of gadgets that are used in almost every industry due to their high performance and stability. Contrary to their name, these minerals are abundant on the surface and are actually more easily found than gold and other precious metals. In addition, technological advancements leading to the development of new equipment and processes for refining and strengthening extraction capacities of various major companies is another factor contributing to revenue growth of the market during the forecast period.

High costs of extraction machinery and complexity of refining process are some key factors that can hamper revenue growth of the rare earth metals market to a certain extent. Over time, manufacturers have found numerous alternatives to these elements as they can be quite expensive, and the extraction process is not environmentally safe. In addition, damages and risks due to the extraction process are some other factors that will restrain revenue growth of the market to a significant extent over the forecast period.

These elements are known to have cheaper alternatives such as aluminum sulfate or titanium dioxide, but the strength of these alternatives is questionable and unreliable. The artificial synthesis of these metals is proving to solve a lot of the problems such as high-quality product at reasonable prices for consumers to use. These factors are expected to increase research and development activities for creating innovative methods of both production and application. Moreover, increasing extraction and exploration of newer compounds and alloys due to rising demand for electronics in security and communication industries are expected to further open up new avenues for major companies and revenue growth of the market.
