The rare earth market witnessed a rather poor performance throughout 2015. The glum global economy coupled with excessive supply of material, culminated in the global rare earth industry witnessing pitiable downstream demand and slow buying activity and therefore a dramatic slide in price. Market participants currently lack confidence in the market for the short term. So can we expect to see a turnaround in the global rare earth industry in 2016?
The Chinese rare earth market was dim in 2015. The excessive supply and extensive illegal mining activities continued to depress the market. Suppliers had difficulty in concluding deals and the competition among suppliers was fierce. The market kept seeing limited buying activities. Chinese Customs tariff Commission of the State Council announced to cancel rare earth export tariff on April 23 of 2015. It suggested the end of rare earth export tariff, which was carried out on November of 1st, 2006. Participants expected the cancelation of this rare earth export tariff would result in a active rare earth export market, however Chinese rare earth export market remained lethargic throughout 2015 and witnessed a continuously dropping price. Overseas importers held wait-and-see attitudes. Will the Chinese rare earth market revive itself at all in 2016?
Outlook for global rare earth market in 2016
Global rare earth market was in low performance in 2016. The downstream demand remained weak and suppliers had difficulty in concluding deals, which resulted in dropping price in global rare earth market. Will the market rebound in 2016?
Prospect forecast of Chinese rare earth market in 2016
Chinese rare earth market was dim in 2015. Affected by soft downstream demand and excessive “black rare earth”, Chinese rare earth market was oversupplied and consumers delayed purchases continuously. Consumers had difficulty in concluding deals and Chinese rare earth market witnessed slow buying activities and declining price. Will the market see improvements in 2016?
