Permanent Magnets; Materials, Applications and Economics Issue S

While it’s true that most permanent magnet (PM) material ever commercialized (except Lodex for obvious environmental and safety reasons) are still in some limited use today there are only 5 classes of PM materials/types that are commercially important. So how do we get decent estimates of the relative market sizes for the different magnet options? It turns out despite all the market studies available it is difficult to achieve accurate estimates of the global PM market.
