Permanent Magnets Market Report and Forecast 2017-2022


Permanent magnets are the basis of an increasing number of devices of modern life. They are found in or used in making almost every modern convenience today, from air-conditioners and washing machines to speakers in mobile phones and electric motors in hybrid cars. Their ability to maintain a large magnetic flux, even in the absence of an applied magnetizing field, or upon modifications of the environment (temperature, demagnetizing field, etc.) is a unique feature that can be employed in a wide variety of applications. During 2009-2016, the global permanent magnets market grew at a CAGR of around 6.6% in terms of value.
