World rare earths World rare earths Document Transcript

  • World Rare EarthsReport SummaryWorld demand to rise 7.1% annually through 2015World demand for rare earths is forecast to expand 7.1 percent per year to 180,000 metrictons in 2015. In dollar terms, sales are expected to more than triple from $3.0 billion in2010 to $9.2 billion in 2015. Consumption will be driven by increases in battery alloy,electronic product, motor vehicle and permanent magnet output. Market growth is expectedto accelerate substantially from the 2005-2010 period, when demand in most nations wasnegatively impacted by sharp and unexpected reductions in Chinese export quotas which ledto an exponential rise in rare earths prices.Permanent magnets to remain largest marketRare earths demand can be segmented into eight major markets: auto catalysts; batteryalloys; fluid cracking catalysts (FCCs); glass, polishing and ceramics; metal processing;permanent magnets; phosphors; and other. Permanent magnets are -- and will continue tobe -- the largest rare earths market, both in terms of value and volume. Global demand forrare earths used in permanent magnets will register both a substantial improvement fromthe 2005-2010 period and the strongest rate of growth of any major market in volumeterms. Sales will be fueled by increases in consumer electronics, electric motors, and hybridelectric and other motor vehicle production. Neodymium iron-boron (NdFeB) magnets, alsoknown as “neo-magnets,” will account for the vast majority of sales.Worldwide demand for rare earths used in metal processing applications will exhibitrenewed strength following a period of minimal growth between 2005 and 2010. Sales willbe stimulated by increased levels of global steel production, particularly high-strength steelsand steels with elevated anti-oxidation properties.Browse All Energy and Power Market Research ReportsNeodymium, dysprosium to be fastest growing typesNeodymium and dysprosium are expected to post the fastest volume gains of any rareearths type, spurred by increased sales of heat-resistant NdFeB permanent magnets.However, cerium will remain the most widely used rare earth, accounting for nearly one-third of the 2015 total tonnage. Lanthanum and neodymium, with 27 and 23 percent of the2015 tonnage total, respectively, will be the second and third most utilized types of rareearths. China has held a virtual monopoly on rare earths production since the turn of thecentury. In 2010, Chinese mines produced 111,000 metric tons of rare earths, accountingfor over 90 percent of world output. However, the emergence of non-Chinese suppliers,combined with increased research and development in rare earths refining technologies, willboost overall rare earths supply and eventually reduce upward pricing pressures.Rare earth prices to peak around 2013Prices for rare earths have jumped dramatically in recent years, particularly in the wake ofunexpected cuts in China export quotas. Pricing determinations are complicated by a
  • dichotomy between pricing within China and spot prices outside of China. It is anticipatedthat prices will peak around 2013, when there will be downward pricing correction as newindustry entrants begin to operate at close to full production capacity. Especially notable willbe the elevated prices for the light rare earth neodymium and the heavy rare earthsdysprosium, terbium and yttrium. Table of Contents INTRODUCTION I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY II.
