Glass segment among the other applications to dominate the rare earth metals recycling market in terms of value during the forecast period
Erbium, ytterbium, and neodymium are the most widely used rare earth metals in glass. Optical communication uses erbium-doped silica fiber, engineering materials processing uses ytterbium-doped silica fiber, and glass lasers used for inertial confinement fusion apply neodymium-doped. The ability to change the fluorescent properties of glass is one of the most important uses of rare earth metals in glass. Rare earth is used as clarifier, additive, decolorizer, colorant, and polishing powder in the glass industry and plays an irreplaceable role in other elements. By using the characteristics of high refraction and low dispersion of some rare earth elements, optical glass can be produced, which can be used to make good lenses of cameras, cameras, telescopes, and other good optical instruments.
Hydrometallurgical technology segment to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period
Rare earth metals bearing deposits are limited and, hence, secondary sources of rare earth metals such as wastes are becoming the potential sources. Hydrometallurgical processing technology methodologies routed through leaching, solvent extraction, and precipitation is often preferred as a prominent technique for recovering rare earth metals from secondary wastes such as batteries, spent magnets, e-wastes, and others. The technology has a number of advantages over the pyro-metallurgical route. The favorable features of this technique are low production costs, small amount of waste generation, and low levels of noxious gases emission, which prevent environmental contamination and enable a clean separation of targeted rare earth metals.
Fluorescent lamps to be the largest source of rare earth metals recycling during the forecast period
The inner lining of fluorescent tubes is coated with phosphors, which absorb the ultraviolet light from electrically charged mercury vapor and re-emit visible light based on a mix of blue, green, and red emitters. While the adoption of LED lighting technology is growing rapidly, there are still about 2.3 billion fluorescent light sockets in the US, which will probably continue to be widely used in the foreseeable future. Europium (Eu) and yttrium (Y) are two rare earth metals that are commonly used in sustainable technology and high-tech applications. As these metals are difficult to mine, there is a great scope for recycling them. They can be recovered from red lamp phosphor, a powder that is used in fluorescent lamps such as neon tubes.
Asia Pacific is the largest market for rare earth metals recycling
Asia Pacific has witnessed tremendous growth in the past few years, driven by the growing population, favorable investment policies, growing economies, and government initiatives directed at promoting electronics and automobile industries in the region. The region is the largest consumer of rare earth materials due to rapidly increasing demand in China, which accounts for the maximum consumption of rare earth metals globally.
