Alnico V/S Neodymium: Which is Better?

The neodymium market is expected to reach a volume of 80,293.8 tons by 2031. Though neodymium is gaining popularity as one of the strongest magnets, alnico is emerging as an alternative option and is being publicized as a wonder magnet. Alnico is likely to affect the prices for neodymium, as alnico is highly resistant to corrosion as compared to neodymium.

Companies in the neodymium market are gaining awareness about the advantages of alnico, since alnico is relatively cost efficient. Nevertheless, neodymium is being preferred in low temperature applications. Neodymium offers better performance than alnico in the sector of miniaturization of electronic devices. Benefits of neodymium magnets can far outweigh its disadvantages, mostly due to its strength in relation to size, which make it an ideal option for compact applications.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Due to the shifting demand and supply sentiments amid ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, companies in the neodymium market are taking this opportunity to help their employees and staff to upskill for adopting new business models. The market is slated to clock a favorable CAGR of 8% in terms of value during the forecast period. However, the National Health Service (NHS) has called for a ban on toy neodymium magnets linked with child safety concerns. Hence, manufacturers should consider changes in toy designs to ensure magnets are covered by a casing too large to swallow by children. Manufacturers should expand income sources via neodymium rod magnets used in experiments by inquisitive youngsters in schools.

Neodymium Market: Overview

  • Neodymium is present in large quantities in various ore minerals such as monazite and bastnäsite. The element is not present naturally in metal form and is always refined for general use. Neodymium is referred to as a rare-earth metal, but it is a common element that is largely found in the earth’s crust. The original color of neodymium is reddish purple.
  • Neodymium can be refined by separating neodymium salts from other rare-earths by ion-exchange or solvent extraction. Alternatively, it can be obtained by the reduction of anhydrous halides such as NdF3 using calcium metal.
  • Neodymium compounds are employed commercially in glass dyes. They are also used as additives in the manufacture of glass. Furthermore, neodymium is employed in lasers, which emit infrared light with wavelengths that range from 1047 nanometers to 1062 nanometers. These lasers are used largely in a variety of high power applications. Additionally, neodymium is employed as one of the components in alloys, which are used in the manufacture of powerful permanent magnets. These magnets are used in various electrical and electronic products including microphones, in-ear headphones, loudspeakers, and computer hard disks.
  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global neodymium market for the historical year 2020 and the forecast period 2021 to 2031, increase in usage of neodymium in green energy technologies and permanent magnets are key factors that are expected to boost the global neodymium market during the forecast period
  • In terms of revenue, the global neodymium market is expected to reach US$ 3.4 Bn by 2031, at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period

Rise in Usage of Neodymium in Permanent Magnets: Key Driver

  • Neodymium magnets are particularly used in hard disk drives, mobile phones, and video and audio systems of televisions. Neodymium magnets are also commonly used in magnetic separators, filters, and ionizers. They are also employed in the production of on-off buttons and security systems. Grease filter producers use neodymium magnets in metal separators to effectively filter out iron powder in oil. Additionally, they are beneficial in covering machines, cars with awning, and in the production of magnetic tool belts. They are also used in jewelry clips and identification badges. Furthermore, they are used in the production of baby strollers, which are attached to carriers via magnets.
  • The healthcare sector is another field wherein neodymium magnets are incorporated in medical devices due to their ability to generate a static magnetic field. They are used in magnetic resonance imaging devices to diagnose and treat chronic pain syndrome, wound healing, insomnia, arthritis, headache, and several other diseases. NASA uses neodymium magnets to maintain the muscular tonus of astronauts during space flights. Neodymium magnets have push-pull forces. They are used as motion generating devices in orthodontic treatments, molar distillation, and palatal expansion.
  • Neodymium magnets are widely used in satellite communications, remote control telemetry, radar technology, electronic countermeasures, and electronic tracking. These magnets are also used in magnetron tubes, magnetron traveling wave tubes, cathode ray tubes, and circulators. Neodymium magnets have also been widely used in several transportation applications such as magnetic suspension trains and permanent magnet devices for luxury cars.

Increase in Demand for Neodymium in Green Energy Technologies

  • Neodymium is extensively used for generating energy. As a result of global warming, many countries are striving to cater to their energy requirements using green energy sources. Thus, solar energy and wind energy have gained momentum. Wind energy is recognized as the most effective method available to generate energy. In order to generate this energy, large-scale wind farms need to have efficient turbines. These wind mills have in-built motors that are made of a special rare-earth magnet called neodymium. Special properties that exist in this rare-earth magnet have encouraged the use of the magnet in motors that are employed in wind turbines.
  • Neodymium is also used in windmills to develop magnetic mounting systems that securely attach ladders and other equipment to steel tower walls. This method allows equipment to be secured to the tower without the need to drill holes or weld brackets to the tower wall. This progressive mounting solution reduces construction time and costs. The use of several strong neodymium magnets strategically placed along the entire length of the ladder, thereby increasing worker safety by securing the ladder in a manner that prevents swaying or other lateral movement that could cause a worker to slip and fall, causing physical harm to individuals as well as operational and financial harm to the company and industry at large. Thus, increase in usage of neodymium in windmills for energy generation is anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period.
