Permanent Magnet Market: Introduction
A permanent magnet is an object which maintains a lasting magnetic field around it without the use of an external power source. Naturally occurring substances sometimes also possess magnetic field within them. These substances are further magnetized to increase the intensity of their magnetic field, thereby converting them into usable permanent magnets. These magnets are commonly used for both industrial as well as domestic purposes. Permanent magnets are used in areas where their attracting and repelling force is harnessed without an external power and converted to perform useful functions. They are also used to convert electrical force to mechanical force and vice versa, as in motors and generators, among others. New found applications of permanent magnets include their widespread use in healthcare and cathode ray tubes. With a widespread array of applications served by permanent magnets, it is expected that the market and demand for permanent magnets will improve manifolds in the upcoming years.
Permanent Magnet Market: Dynamics
Continuous technological advancements and development of innovative machineries have been aiding in the evolvement of sustainable and efficient mining processes across the world. This factor has led to an increase in mining produce, including rare earth metals. This factor has also aided in catering to the growing demand for permanent magnets which are being unearthed as part of mining activities. Moreover, permanent magnets have found increased usage in medical imaging devices which are being increasingly utilized for diagnostic purposes, thereby leading to an improvement in the growth of the market in the upcoming years.
