Magnetic Materials Market Analysis, Size, Growth, Demand, Share, Revenue, Graph, Segmentation and Forecast

Magnetic materials are those that can be magnetized and thus attract other magnetic objects. These materials are composed of atoms with an unpaired electron, allowing them to align with an external magnetic field and generate a magnetic moment. Magnetic materials have a wide range of applications, from motors and generators to storage devices like hard discs and tapes. They’re also used in medical devices like MRI machines and pacemakers. Magnetic materials are in high demand due to the development of new technologies and the increasing demand for devices that use magnetic properties.  The main uses of magnetic materials include in electrical motors, generators and transformers, consumer electronics, medical equipment, magnetic recording media and aerospace applications.

Semi-hard magnet account for the major share of the magnetic materials market

The semi-hard magnets neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) account for the majority of the magnetic materials market. These magnets provide the most magnetic energy and are used in a variety of applications including automotive, electronics, and robotics. NdFeB magnets are extremely hard and brittle, making them unsuitable for use in applications involving shock or vibration. They are, however, ideal for applications that require a strong magnetic field.

Growing industrialization drives the automotive & transportation application segment

The automotive and transportation segment accounted for approximately 41.4% of market revenue. This is primarily due to increased demand for electric vehicles and the use of magnetic materials in various automotive components such as sensors, motors, and powertrain components. During the forecast period, the electronics and consumer appliances segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate. This is primarily due to rising consumer electronics demand for smartphones and other consumer appliances.
