The scope of this report is broad and covers several types of permanent magnets used globally; it is broken down into four major types based on the magnetic material used in production, which includes alnico, neodymium, samarium-cobalt and ferrite. Each type is further divided on the basis of production process, which primarily includes sintering and bonding. The major applications of permanent magnets are in electric-motors, generators, medical devices, sonic equipment, magnetic sensors and transducers, and consumer electronics. The market for each type of permanent magnet in these applications and the market for each type of permanent magnet by region is also covered in this report. The global permanent magnet market is expected to grow from nearly $13.4 billion in 2015 to roughly $20 billion by 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.4% for the period of 2015-2020.

The market size of magnetic materials is estimated to have been USD 55.52 Billion in 2014, and is projected to reach USD 96.00 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 9.6% between 2015 and 2020. In this report, 2014 is considered as the base year and forecast period is 2015–2020. The global magnetic materials market has been segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. Semi-hard magnet is projected to play a key role in fueling the growth of the overall magnetic materials market owing to its unique properties, making it suitable for use in various automotive, electronics, industrial, power generation, and other applications. Semi-hard is the most extensively used magnetic materials owing to global demand for technological systems & devices that are used to develop innovative products. Some of the related products are antitheft articles, electronic systems, automotive devices, and smart electronic bank card.

Worldwide demand for permanent mag-nets, which totaled $11 billion in 2014, is forecast to climb 7.3 percent annually through 2019 to $16.2 billion. In volume terms, world magnet sales will expand 4 percent per year to over 1 million metric tons in 2019. Market gains will be driven by increases in durable goods output as economic conditions improve and the overall number of applications for mag-nets rises. The elimination of rare earth export quotas and taxes by the Chinese government in 2015 will also support growth, by helping to ensure that ade-quate raw material supplies are available on a global basis and by further easing pricing pressures following a period during which neodymium and samarium cobalt magnet costs unexpectedly spiked.

The global soft magnetic material industry is a mature industry. However, a new energy paradigm, consisting of greater reliance on renewable energy sources and increased concern for energy efficiency in the total energy life-cycle, has accelerated research into energy-related technologies. New improved materials with higher energy efficiency have been demonstrated for amorphous and nanocrystalline soft magnetic materials. While amorphous steel has been used extensively as the core material for transformers and motors, the emerging nanocrystalline core material has even higher efficiency and will see much higher growth in the future.
