REIA Event: How Resilient is the Rare Earth Supply Chain?

DATE: 16 September 2021

TIME: 13.00-15.00 (CEST)


Rare Earth market is like driving on a bumpy road with frequent price fluctuations, supply chain uncertainty and unpredictable demand forecast. 

Will there be enough supply to meet the unprecedented demand expected in the near future? How will prices react to these developments? How resilient is the REE supply chain as resilience is defined as the capacity to supply enough of a given material to satisfy the demand and to provide suitable alternatives in case of insufficient supply? 

Key components of resilience in the RE sector include diversification of supply through investments in new mines, separation and transformation facilities across the world as well as recycling.

REIA proposes to delve into these topics at its next event which will take place on 16 September from 1 to 3pm (CET)
