Rare earth magnet is a set of strong permanent magnets that are made from the alloys of particular earth elements. It has significantly higher performance than ferrite and alnico magnet. It is rarely found in its concentrated form and generally found dispersed with other elements. They are classified into two categories- neodymium magnets and samarium-cobalt magnets. Neodymium magnets are the strongest and most affordable type while samarium-cobalt magnets have certain niche application because of their higher cost and higher Curie temperature as compared to Neodymium magnets. During 2009-2016, the global rare earth magnet market grew at a CAGR of around 6% The market is currently being driven by the strong demand of rare earth magnets in applications such as motors, generators, consumer electronics, HDD, CD, and DVD etc.
