Recent findings suggesting a global supply shortage of rare earth elements has created a panic
among end users and a gold rush among miners. IMARC Group, one of the world‘s leading
research and advisory firms, finds that with a number of new mines starting production in the
next five years, the total supply of rare earth elements will be significantly more than the
total demand. Although, a number of rare earth elements would be oversupplied, we may
face a shortage of some elements that are critical for the long term growth of the clean
technology industry.

    • Report Description & HighlightsRecent findings suggesting a global supply shortage of rare earth elements has created a panicamong end users and a gold rush among miners. IMARC Group, one of the world‘s leadingresearch and advisory firms, finds that with a number of new mines starting production in thenext five years, the total supply of rare earth elements will be significantly more than thetotal demand. Although, a number of rare earth elements would be oversupplied, we mayface a shortage of some elements that are critical for the long term growth of the cleantechnology industry.IMARC‘s new report entitled “The Global Rare Earth Elements Market 2011-2015: Is theHype Justified?” provides an analytical and statistical insight into the global rare earthelements market. The study that has been undertaken using both desk-based as well asqualitative primary research has analyzed five aspects of the rare earth elements market.Key Aspects Analyzed:Understanding the Mining Economics of Rare Earth Elements:Focus of the Analysis: Rare earth mine valuation Stages and time taken to develop and start production at a rare earth mine The total costs involved in rare earth mining Mining and downstream processing of rare earth elements Rare earth element pricingUnderstanding China’s Role in the Global Rare Earth Elements Market: Focus of the Analysis: China’s role in the global supply and demand of rare earth elements Reasons for China’s dominance China’s current and future supply strategies
    • Comprehensive Situation Analysis of the Global Rare Earth Elements Market: Focus of the analysis: Quantifying the historical sales and production of rare earth elements Identification and evaluation of current global rare earth mines Identification and evaluation of mines expected to begin production in the next five years Current and future consumption of rare earth elementsEvaluating the Supply and Demand of Various Rare Earth Elements: Focus of the analysis: Quantifying the production of each element from current and future mines Quantifying the current and future demand of each element Historical, current and future prices of each element Evaluating the supply risks of each element and its importance for clean technology Identification of critically undersupplied and oversupplied rare earth elementsEvaluating the Demand of Rare Earth Elements in Various Industries Focus of the analysis: Quantifying the current and future size of each Industry Quantifying the current and future demands of rare earth elements in each industry Identification of industries having the highest demand of rare earth elements.Information Sources:Information has been sourced from both primary and secondary sources: Primary sources include industry surveys and face to face/telephone interviews with industry experts. Secondary sources include proprietary databases and search engines. These sources include company websites and reports, books, trade journals, magazines, white papers, industry portals, government sources and access to more than 4000 paid databases.Imarc®
