Pune, India, June 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As per the report published by Fortune Business Insights™, the global rare earth elements market size was valued at USD 2,607.4 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 5,520.2 million by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.0% during the forecast period. The rare earth elements market is set to gain traction from the rising adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) owing to the urgent need to reduce emissions in the environment. For instance, the International Energy Agency (IEA) declared that the demand for EVs is rising at a fast pace in Japan, the U.S., and China. This information is given by Fortune Business Insights™ in a published report, titled, “Rare Earth Elements Market, 2023-2028.”

In the coming years, Europe is predicted to become the second-fastest-growing market after APAC, because European countries hold a significant share in rare earth metal imports.


The demand for rare earth elements has been steadily increasing in recent years due to the growth of high-tech industries and the transition to clean energy. This has led to a rise in prices for many rare earth elements, particularly neodymium, praseodymium, and dysprosium, which are used in the production of permanent magnets for electric vehicles and wind turbines.
