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.

Notes on the price-data

  • We aim to update the data series on the 9th and 24th of each month (but we do not always make it for each chart)
  • The data for the current month and recent history are fine-tuned over time.
  • We are continually improving our data collection and processing methods and data will be updated from time to time as we improve the accuracy
  • We are working hard to improve/train our algorithm before May 9, 2023.
    • There will be continuous fine-tuning until May 9.
    • After May 9, 2023, the focus will be on adding additional price indexes for the rest of 2023
  • This the index trend of the price of the product group in general and not a single specification in particular
  • The source of the data are exclusively public non-confidential sources
  • We combine public publications, import/export records, company announcements, and sources of ad-hoc public information.
  • The chart shows the price trend,  nearly always taken from many statistically-correlated sources 
  • The data is presented in US$. The UOM of measure is shown in the Index list table
  • We do our best to create an accurate representation of the trend
  • Although we believe the price trend to be accurate, we assume no responsibility or liability for any errors or omissions in the content of this site.
  • The information is provided on an “as is” basis with no guarantees of completeness, accuracy, usefulness, fitness for purpose or timeliness.
  • By their nature, outlooks are always uncertain
  • We are working on 500 additional indexes which will be released over time when we are content that it is accurate.
  • Feel free to contact us if you have a specific request.
