In the first chapter of the report presents brief characteristics of world market REM, data on world reserves, production (2002-2013), consumption, and prices for certain types of REM (2006-2012). The situation is described in detail in the production and export of rare earth in China.

In the second chapter of the report describes in detail the mineral resources of REM in the CIS. Shows the characteristics of the existing fields in the CIS (Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine), data on the potential reserves of rare earth metals in the CIS.

The third chapter is devoted to projects in the CIS associated with mining and processing of rare earth raw materials. We select the most promising projects, given their characteristics.

The fourth chapter presents data mining and milling of ores containing rare-earth metals. The detailed description of the main enterprise-producers of the products in the CIS countries, the main of which is LLC "Lovozero mine."

The fifth chapter is devoted to the production of rare earth products in the CIS. It shows the range of rare earth products in the CIS, a detailed description of company-producers of rare earth products, shows the dynamics of production and supply. The sixth chapter presents data on exports and imports of REM 1997-2013 in Russia with the distribution of the directions of delivery and produ ct. It also gives the dynamics of prices for different types supplied REM (compounds and metals). The section is supplemented with a description of the foreign trade operations REM Kazakhstan, Ukraine and other CIS countries. In the seventh chapter describes in detail the consumption of rare earth products in Russia. This chapter presents the dynamics of REM consumption in Russia (2000-2013), the structure of consumption by individual REM, the main company-consumers. Also the characteristic areas of consumption of rare earth products in Russia.

The eighth chapter is devoted to forecast of production and consumption of rare earth products in Russia / CIS up to 2020 and in 2025, it presents a variety of options for the development of the market situation in Russia.

The Appendix presents data as the main rare earth products Molycorp Silmet (AS Silmet), as well as addresses and contact information on the main companies producing, supplying and consuming rare earth products.

Target audience research:

  • Market participants earth products - producers, consumers, traders;
  • Potential investors.

This research claims to be the handbook for professionals working in the market of REM and make management decisions.
