What is dysprosium

Dysprosium is a chemical element with the symbol Dy and atomic number 66. It is a rare earth metal that is silver-white in appearance and has a relatively high melting point. Dysprosium is one of the least abundant of the rare earth elements, but it has important uses in a variety of fields, including nuclear reactors, magnets, and lighting. It is also used in the production of high-strength magnets used in electric vehicles and wind turbines. Dysprosium is named after the Greek word “dysprositos,” which means “hard to get at.”


How is dysprosium  produced



What is dysprosium used for

Dysprosium has a variety of uses due to its unique properties. Some common uses of dysprosium include:

Nuclear reactors

Dysprosium is used as a control material in nuclear reactors due to its ability to absorb neutrons.


Dysprosium is used to make high-strength magnets, which are used in various applications, including electric vehicles, wind turbines, and computer hard drives.


Dysprosium is used in lighting applications, including halogen bulbs, fluorescent lamps, and high-intensity discharge lamps.

Glass and ceramics

Dysprosium is used as a dopant in glass and ceramics to improve their thermal and electrical conductivity and other properties.

Data storage

Dysprosium is used as a data storage material in some types of computer memory.

Medical imaging

Dysprosium is used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a contrast agent to improve image quality.

Overall, dysprosium is an important element for a variety of high-tech applications, and its unique properties make it an essential material in many industries.




How big is the dysprosium  market

The global dysprosium market is relatively small compared to other metals, as dysprosium is a rare earth element and is relatively rare in the Earth’s crust. However, it is still an important material for various high-tech applications, and the market for dysprosium is expected to grow in the coming years.

The exact size of the global dysprosium market is difficult to estimate, as prices and demand can fluctuate widely depending on various factors such as supply and demand, production costs, and geopolitical factors. However, according to a report by Allied Market Research, the global dysprosium market was valued at approximately $88.6 million in 2019 and is expected to reach $151.9 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2020 to 2027.

Factors such as increasing demand for high-strength magnets in various industries, including automotive and wind energy, are expected to drive the growth of the dysprosium market in the coming years.

Where does the data come from?

  • The source of the data are exclusively public non-confidential sources. We have no access to primary data
  • This the index trend of the price trend of the "product category" in general, and not a single specification of the product in particular
  • The data is a combination of contract and spot pricing
  • Our algorithms are set up to eliminate significant product mix impact on the reported price
  • We combine public publications, import/export records, trading prices, company announcements, magazine articles, tweets, and other sources of ad-hoc public information.
  • The chart shows the our best approximation of the market trend based on our algorithm interpretation of the signals
  • For most indexes we have multiple sources and we focus on using statistically-correlated sources
  • As a function of our automation, it is likely that recent trends will be adjusted as we discover more information. So, for example, the price trend for February 2024 will be first calculated in February 2024 and adjusted in March, April and May 2024.
  • We will update the data trend as more information becomes available, and this means that recent trends will always be adjusted as we get more data available
  • The algorithm will regularly revise our understanding of market trends, and indicated market trends may change
  • The data is presented in US$. The UOM of measure is shown in the Index list table
  • Our automated software and we do our best to create an accurate representation of the trend


Where does the data NOT come from?

  • We do not purchase data from any other source and republish it.
  • We will not purchase data from any other source and republish it
  • We do not extrapolate trends, even for the forecast. We look for other market signals and leading indicators


What data should our company use?

  • If you are making decisions driving significant share of profit, we always recommend that you buy data from the companies who invest in direct primary market access such as ICIS, amongst many others
  • Our data, at best, represents an estimate of the market trend based on public information
  • We have no direct access to the market, and we do not interview suppliers and customers
  • Our automated analysis tools in the online software are set up to combine our data with other sources of data
  • We do not recommend that you use our data for direct price mechanisms, as we may change and improve the data trends over time, including historical data


What does the quality indication in the main menu mean?

  • Quality level A: Data is from a reliable and confirmed source
  • Quality level B: Data is from multiple credible sources and there are no major statistical inconsistencies between them
  • Quality level C: Data is from multiple credible sources and there are some statistical inconsistencies between them
  • Quality level D: Data is from a single credible source, but we cannot verify the data
  • Quality level E: Data is either:
    • From a single source, which we consider reliable, but we cannot verify the data.
    • From 2 or more sources which have some periods of contradicting trends.
  • Quality level F: Data is from a single source which we consider indicatively correct, but the data is anecdotal and we cannot verify the data.
