Market Overview

“The Global Rare Earth Elements Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 10.0% during the forecasting period (2021-2028)”.

Rare earth elements are a group of seventeen metals and compounds of the same metals in the periodic table with specific properties. The group of elements consists of yttrium, scandium and the 15 lanthanide elements such as Cerium, Erbium, Europium, Gadolinium, Holmium, Lanthanum, Neodymium, Praseodymium, Promethium, Samarium, Scandium, Terbium, Thulium, Ytterbium and Yttrium. These elements possess certain characteristics such as high electrical conductivity, fluorescent properties, and have high magnetic properties. It can be useful when alloyed, or mixed, in small quantities of other metals such as iron, aluminum, etc.

Rare earth elements are usually found in several applications such as portable electronic devices such as smartphones, portable computers readers, loudspeakers, and cameras as well as in automobile batteries.
