The average price of Neodymium in rare earth metals increased by 5,000 yuan/ton from 411,500 yuan/ton, Dysprosium by 25,000 yuan/ton to 2325,000 yuan/ton, and praseodymium by 695,000 yuan/ton. The average price of praseodymium and neodymium oxides in rare earth oxides increased by 3000 yuan/ton to 325,500 yuan/ton, dysprosium oxide by 15,000 yuan/ton to 192,000 yuan/ton, praseodymium oxide by 385,000 yuan/ton and neodymium oxide by 3,000 yuan/ton to 325,000 yuan/ton. The price of praseodymium and neodymium alloys in rare earth alloys increased by 5,000 yuan/ton to 411,500 yuan/ton, and the average price of dysprosium-iron alloys increased by 15,000 yuan/ton to 1925,000 yuan/ton.

Recently, the price of light rare earth in the rare earth market keeps rising, the price of heavy rare earth market has risen, the domestic rare earth market trading market is general, the price of dysprosium-terbium metals and oxides has risen, the inquiry list of praseodymium oxide in the field has increased recently, and the price of light rare earth oxides has maintained an upward trend. At that time, the light rare earth merchants in the field had a reluctant mood to sell. Looking forward to the future market, the recent on-site trading situation is general. The supply of rare earth is normal in China. The price fluctuation of rare earth market is related to the national environmental protection supervision. Rare earth production has its particularity, especially the radiation hazards of some products, which make the environmental protection supervision stricter. Under strict environmental protection inspection, rare earth separation enterprises in many provinces have stopped production, resulting in a general market of rare earth oxides. Especially some mainstream rare earth oxides are in normal supply. The price trend of rare earth market has risen. Recently, large enterprise groups in the field are reluctant to sell. The market of rare earth oxides is general and the turnover has not changed much.


Recently, the national environmental protection department has made great efforts to investigate the rare earth industry, which has a great impact on the rare earth industry. The starting situation of the rare earth industry is relatively low, and the market is cold. In addition, the recent rectification of the rare earth industry in Jiangxi Province, a major province of rare earth production, has brought some favorable support to the rare earth market. Recently, the Development and Reform Commission and the relevant departments have stepped up effective measures to regulate the industry, innovate and improve the relevant management mechanism, accelerate the construction of a rational industrial structure, advanced scientific and technological level, effective protection of resources, orderly production and operation of the industry development pattern, and give full play to the special price of rare earth as a strategic resource. Meanwhile, the supply of raw ore resources in the upstream of the rare earth industry has shrunk, and people in the domestic market are waiting for the good news of the policy and national reserves.

Rare earth analysts of business associations expect that the domestic environmental stringency will not decrease in the near future, coupled with the domestic reorganization of the order of the rare earth industry, Jiangxi rare earth industry reorganization, supply may be reduced, but the demand for rare earth downstream in the near future has been supported, and it is expected that some prices in the rare earth market will continue to rise.
