Rare Earths Forum: Technology Development & Growth

Metal Events Rare Earths Forum is coming to Montreal. Sign up now and benefit from the super early-bird fee of £400 per person.

Our 14th International Rare Earths Conference in Hong Kong in November was very well attended. There is an air of greater optimism returning to the global rare earths sector and market sentiment is improving,

The outlook for demand is positive as the requirement for magnets in electric vehicles grows but as  demand increases are other sources of supply required? If so where will this new supply come from? Can OEMs rely on China?What is the game changer that will enable new supply to come to the market?

These and other topics will be covered at this one-day event so book now to find out what is in store for rare earths in 2018 and beyond.
