However, the market value is expected to decline mainly due to plummeting rare earths prices. The prices of rare earths which unprecedentedly spiked in 2010 and 2011 due to the reduction in Chinese rare earths exports is expected to decline in the next few years, due to price adjustment, and the additional rare earths supply from the US, Australia and Canada.
The Visiongain author of The Rare Earths Market 2012-2022 report commented that ‘currently there are more than 400 rare earths projects in various stages of development, however, only less than 30 projects will make it to the production stage over the period 2012-2022. The sooner the project will complete the better it will be for the survival of the company. It is highly likely that delays in the project development will make it difficult for the producer to enter into the market.”
Indeed, the demand for rare earths will increase despite a decline in the value of the rare earths market. The demand for rare earths is expected to increase by 2.7% on the year-on-year basis and will reach 135,000 tonnes in 2012.
