The rising demand for cleaner energy sources has, in turn, propelled the market.

Segment Analysis:

On the basis of type, it is segmented into Cerium, Dysprosium, Erbium, Europium, Gadolinium, Holmium, Lanthanum, Lutetium, Neodymium, Praseodymium, Cerium type is most widely used as its oxide is used as a catalyst in catalytic converters in automotive exhaust systems for reducing emissions.

By application, it is segregated into petrochemicals, Optical Instruments, and Catalysts. The rare earth metals are widely used in petrochemicals a major catalytic application in fluid cracking catalysts (FCC) in the oil & petroleum industry. The product is used in retaining catalyst effectiveness and is used for increasing the yield of gasoline fractions by cracking heavier oil fractions. Product used in FCC catalysts tends to be lighter ones, such as praseodymium and lanthanum.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increasing demand for cleaner energy sources.

  • Rising need and usage of electricity
