Permanent Magnet Market Size

Permanent Magnet market size was valued at around USD 27.97 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to depict a CAGR of 7.4% from 2022 to 2030. Growing number of electric car registrations and government initiatives supporting advanced EV charging infrastructure will be key drivers for the business growth.

Permanent magnet market outlook

The growing automotive business and acceptance of electric vehicles serve as key contributors to the permanent magnet market expansion. Variable speed motor drives utilize permanent-magnet motors, where the rotor is powered by an electronically controlled, variable-frequency source, and variable voltage.

In many of the Asia Pacific countries such as China, the demand for electric vehicles has risen considerably. The rate of plug-in electric car registrations, for instance, rose to around 3.2 million in 2021, representing a hike of over 153% from a year earlier. The country is also the largest electric vehicle industry growth contributor, with over 257,000 units added to the total of 645,000 units during the first half of 2021, according to statistics from EV-Volumes.

Despite the promising growth environments, challenges associated with raw material prices act as a major roadblock to steady permanent magnet market growth, particularly in North America and Europe. In these regions, the price of raw materials has increased due to the expansion of the rare-earth metal reserves across China and other APAC countries.

Permanent Magnet Market Analysis

Permanent magnet market by product


Based on product, the global permanent magnet market is bifurcated into ferrite, neodymium (NdFeB), samarium-cobalt (SmCo), and aluminum-nickel-cobalt (AlNiCo). Among these, the ferrite segment will register revenue worth USD 8.6 billion by 2030.

The manufacturing procedures of ferrite magnets are economical, simple, and less likely to result in demagnetization or corrosion. These notable attributes increase the scope of product applications, including wireless connectors, automobile components, refrigerators, and microphones, accelerating permanent ferrite magnet industry landscape.

Permanent magnet market by application


With regards to the application spectrum, the industry is divided into automotive, energy generation, electronics, and others. Research activities are conducted to efficiently recycle permanent magnets from end-use industries such as consumer electronics. This will proliferate the growth of the global permanent magnet market from the electronics segment, which is poised to depict a CAGR of 7.2% through 2030.

Apart from electronics, other industry verticals including aerospace are prominent end-users of permanent magnets. With the air travel recovery and the escalating defense spending, product adoption for aircraft manufacturing applications will rise considerably.
