Rare Earth Metals Market

Rare-Earth Metals Companies - Lynas Rare Earths Ltd. (Australia) and Australian Strategic Materials Ltd. (Australia) are Leading Players in the Rare Earth Metals Market

The rare earth metal market size is projected to grow from USD  6.0 billion in 2024 and is projected to reach USD  10.9  Billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 12.6%. The rare earth metals market is witnessing a significant surge, largely propelled by the rising demand for these elements in permanent magnet applications. As these materials become increasingly integral to various industries, especially in technologies like electric vehicles and wind turbines, their importance continues to grow. The Asia Pacific region, particularly China, stands out as the fastest-growing market due to its substantial production and consumption levels. This trend is expected to persist as China maintains its dominant position in the global rare earth metals market. Over the next five years, this dynamic is likely to remain a key driver, shaping the market's trajectory and fueling further growth.

Lynas Rare Earths Ltd. engages in the exploration, development, mining, and processing of rare earth minerals, offering a range of rare earth oxides derived from its operations. Rare earths, a group of elements prized for their distinctive magnetic, luminescent, and electrochemical qualities, constitute the core of Lynas Rare Earths' product portfolio. These include europium, lutetium, lanthanum, samarium, yttrium, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium, dysprosium, gadolinium, terbium, holmium, and thulium, among others. These elements find applications across diverse industries such as aerospace, metal alloys, batteries, fiber optics, wind turbines, energy, solar panels, lasers, and glass coloring. With operations spanning Malaysia and Australia, Lynas Rare Earths is headquartered in East Perth, Western Australia, Australia. In the fiscal year ending June 2023 (FY2023), the company reported revenues totaling USD 491.1 million, marking a 23.6% decline compared to FY2022.

Australian Strategic Materials Ltd. is a leading player specializing in rare earth metals essential for advanced and clean technologies. Its operations are centered around two main areas: 1. Extracting and processing critical metal oxides from the polymetallic Dubbo Project in Australia. 2. Building metal plants in key global locations to refine oxides into high-purity critical metals and alloys.

The Dubbo Project is based on a substantial, globally significant resource of rare earths, zirconium, niobium, and hafnium, located in central western New South Wales, approximately 400 kilometers northwest of Sydney. This project aims to offer an alternative, sustainable, and secure source of critical metal oxides, presenting one of the few supply options outside China. It is designed to be a flagship project for clean resource development, targeting net-zero carbon operational emissions. Additionally, its vertically integrated critical metals business converts oxides into high-purity metals, utilizing less energy than conventional methods. The company was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in West Perth, Australia.  ASM became an independent company on the ASX in July 2020. Before that, it was part of Alkane Resources Ltd. which demerged its critical materials division (ASM), creating a separate company with its own listing. This allowed ASM to focus on its business goals and raise capital independently.

Canada Rare Earth Corporation (CRE) is a mineral exploration company that focuses on acquiring and exploring mineral property interests. The company's product applications are diverse, including motors, metal hydride batteries, glass, autocatalysts, and electronic industries. CRE operates in North America and Southeast Asia, and classifies its operations into one reportable business segment: Mineral Products.

CRE's product portfolio includes a variety of high-purity rare earth oxides, rare earth fluorides, larger particles, and nano rare earth oxides, as well as special products. Some of the high-purity rare earth oxide products offered by CRE include cerium, erbium, samarium, europium, dysprosium, gadolinium, holmium, lutetium, neodymium, lanthanum, praseodymium, terbium, ytterbium, scandium, yttrium, and yttrium-europium. The company also offers rare earth fluoride products such as lanthanum, neodymium, and yttrium.

The company's core activities include identifying existing and potential rare earth sources for reliable long-term supply, developing pre-treatment facilities, establishing full capability rare earth separation facilities in strategic locations, and enhancing relationships with major international manufacturing companies

  • On January 2024, Canada Rare Earth Corp. has acquired a majority stake in a private company, Privco, which operates a mining quarry (the "Quarry") containing valuable grades of rare earths and essential minerals. The acquisition, costing USD 400,000, marks a crucial move in its strategy to develop exclusive sources of these minerals.
  • On February 2023, Canada Rare Earth Corp. announced a major step forward in its expansion strategy with the launch of rare earth supply operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The company's operations in the DRC will be carried out under its wholly owned subsidiary, Simba Essential Minerals S.A.S., which was established in December 2023. This move allows Canada Rare Earth to have a more controlled and secure source of rare earth minerals from the DRC's Kivu Provinces, a region known for its rich mineral resources.
  • On February 2022, MP Materials Corp. (NYSE: MP) secures a USD 35 million contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to build a large-scale processing facility for heavy rare earth elements (HREE) at Mountain Pass. These elements are crucial for various defense and commercial technologies, such as electric vehicles, wind turbines, drones, and missile systems.
  • On December 2020, Austrialian Strategic Materials manufactured 6kg of neodymium iron boron (NdFeB) alloy at the Korean Institute of Rare Metals (KIRAM) facility in Korea. This alloy was derived from the FeNd alloy produced at ASM's metallization pilot plant.
