As the chemical industry moves into 2022, strong demand for both commodity and specialty chemicals should keep prices robust throughout the year. However, the  industry could face margin pressures amid raw material cost inflation, which will likely remain high through the first half of 2022.

The global rare earth elements market is set to gain traction from the rising adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) owing to the urgent need to reduce emissions in the environment. For instance, the International Energy Agency (IEA) declared that the demand for EVs is rising at a fast pace in Japan, U.S., and China. This information is given by Fortune Business Insights™ in a published report, titled, “Rare Earth Elements Market, 2021-2028.” As per the report, the market size was USD 2,607.4 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 5,520.2 million by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.0% during the forecast period.
