Global Permanent Magnet Market Overview:

The global permanent magnet market is rising at a steady pace over the past many years. The extensive use of permanent magnet for the production of batteries used in electric and hybrid vehicles is a key factor fueling the permanent magnet market.

China is a key manufacturer of rare earth magnets due to the presence of large iron ore deposits. In addition, low cost of production complemented with high production output contribute for substantial revenue of China in the global permanent magnet market.

The manufacture of a permanent magnet involves a number of steps. Mining and extraction of metal ore is the first step in the making of a permanent magnet. This is followed by separation, which plays a significant role to determine the final properties of permanent magnet products. Product manufacturers employ a number of techniques and processes to obtain magnetic materials. The magnetic materials thus obtained are used to form metal alloys and magnet poweders.

Today, technological advancements and development of modern machinery have aided efficient and sustainable mining processes. This factor has aided the growth of ancillary industries such as permanent magnet.

The growth of medical devices industry is benefitting the permanent magnet market. Permanent magnets are increasingly used in medical imaging devices. These devices are extensively used for diagnostic purposes. The rising practice to harness renewable energy sources for energy production is stoking demand for permanent magnets that are used in electric generators.

The rising popularity of plug-in electric vehicles is likely to immensely benefit the permanent magnet market.

Permanent Magnet Market: Introduction

A permanent magnet is an object which maintains a lasting magnetic field around it without the use of an external power source. Naturally occurring substances sometimes also possess magnetic field within them. These substances are further magnetized to increase the intensity of their magnetic field, thereby converting them into usable permanent magnets. These magnets are commonly used for both industrial as well as domestic purposes. Permanent magnets are used in areas where their attracting and repelling force is harnessed without an external power and converted to perform useful functions. They are also used to convert electrical force to mechanical force and vice versa, as in motors and generators, among others. New found applications of permanent magnets include their widespread use in healthcare and cathode ray tubes. With a widespread array of applications served by permanent magnets, it is expected that the market and demand for permanent magnets will improve manifolds in the upcoming years.

Permanent Magnet Market: Dynamics

Continuous technological advancements and development of innovative machineries have been aiding in the evolvement of sustainable and efficient mining processes across the world.
