Definition of Market/Industry:
Magnetic materials are materials that produce magnetic fields and are used in the production and distribution of electricity. They are also used in modern electrical engineering and electronics components. Magnetic materials are widely used across automotive, electronics, industrial, power generation, and other end-user industries.
The global magnetic materials market is estimated to be valued at US$ 103,486.7 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.9 % over the forecast period (2021-2028).
In March 2019, Arnold Magnetic Technologies, a global manufacturer of rare earth magnets, magnetic assemblies, and precision thin metals, has opened a research and development facility at the MGE Innovation Center in Madison, WI
In May 2019, Rare earths producer Lynas Corp announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Texas-based Blue Line Corp to set up a rare earths separation facility in the United States.
Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global magnetic materials market in 2020, accounting for 76.12% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and North America, respectively. Asia-Pacific is the largest and fastest-growing market for magnetic materials owing to high demand from major markets, such as China, India, and Japan. The growing automotive industry in the region is also driving the market for magnetic materials.

Robust growth in the automotive industry due to the increasing production of automobiles is primarily fueling the market growth of the magnetic materials. Magnetic materials such as soft magnets and hard magnets are widely used in the automotive industry. They are used in motors, alternators, and gearboxes as they require permanent magnets in their mechanism. Moreover, large magnets especially NdFeB and ferrite are used in the moving car parts, engine components, and battery components.
Increasing investment in the development of high-speed locomotive systems that employs electromagnets are projected to foster market growth. Moreover, the development and modernization of infrastructures coupled with the increasing use of permanent magnets in the motors of train doors and lift doors are again propelling the market growth of the magnetic materials. All these factors are projected to accelerate the market growth of the magnetic materials over the forecast period.
The growing demand for magnetic materials in hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) is expected to bring new market opportunities over the forecast period. Magnetic materials are widely used in the development of hybrid electric vehicles. Thus, increasing the penetration of hybrid electric vehicles is projected to foster market growth. According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, Plug-in hybrids and all-electrics combined accounted for 2.1% of the light vehicle market in 2019.
High demand for the electrical & electronics products is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities over the forecast period. Increasing use of electronic and electrical appliances among the consumer due to increasing disposable income and growing penetration of the internet around the globe is again projected to foster the demand for electrical & electronics products. This is in turn is expected to propel the market growth of the magnetic materials over the forecast period.
