This report analyzes the global market for permanent magnets, which are defined as "hard" materials that can be magnetized (gain the ability to attract iron and other ferromagnetic objects) by an external magnetic field and remain magnetized after the external field is removed. In this report, the terms "magnets" and "magnetic materials" are used as synonyms for permanent magnets and permanent magnetic materials.

Demand figures presented here represent the value of finished magnets and do not include the value of magnet-containing subassemblies or devices.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
