World rare earths demand will expand 7.1 percent annually through 2015, driven by gains in battery alloy, electronic product, motor vehicle and permanent magnet output. Neodymium and dysprosium will post the fastest growth, while cerium will remain the most widely used.
This study analyzes the 128 thousand metric ton world rare earths industry. It presents historical demand data (2000, 2005, 2010) and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., cerium, lanthanum, neodymium, yttrium, dysprosium, terbium, europium), market (e.g., permanent magnets, fluid cracking catalysts, battery alloys, glass, polishing and ceramics, metal processing, auto catalysts, phosphors), world region and for 13 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 21 industry players, Inner Mongolia Baotou Rare-Earth Hi-Tech, China Minmetals and Jiangxi Copper.
