Rare earth metals are a group of elements consisting of the fifteen lanthanide series elements in addition to scandium and yttrium. These elements are often found in nature along with each other. While not being rare as such, they are widely dispersed across the earth and can be hard to separate. These metals display a similar set of properties and are utilized in a variety of application avenues in the electrical and electronics sector. Digital memory devices, smartphones and other cellphones, fluorescent lighting, catalytic converters used in automotive exhaust systems, and rechargeable batteries are among the key application segments of the global rare earth metals market.

The global rare earth metals market is divided into heavy earth metals and light earth metals on the basis of product type. Cerium, which is a light rare earth metal, is the most widely used rare earth metal. Lanthanum and neodymium, two of the other leading product segments of the global rare earth metals market, are also light rare earth metals. Neodymium is also among the highest revenue generators in the global rare earth metals market; scandium is the leader in the global rare earth metals market in this regard.
