The rare earth industry chain in the rare earth high-tech zone is complete, forming an obvious agglomeration effect, and has a complete rare earth industry system. The rare earth industry has formed a complete industrial chain from rare earth raw materials to new materials to end applications, and initially formed rare earth permanent magnets, hydrogen storage, and polishing, Catalysis, and alloy development in five industries, with leading and backbone enterprises in the industry such as Northern Rare Earth, Ruixin Metal, Tianjiao Qingmei, Tianhe Magnetic Materials, and Chang'an Permanent Magnet. At present, there are 99 rare earth industrial enterprises, of which 61 are rare earth new materials enterprises and 30 are rare earth terminal application enterprises. The total number of rare earth new materials and terminal application enterprises accounts for 92%. Baotou Rare Earth Research Institute, Baotou Materials Research Institute of Shanghai Jiaotong University, Baotou Rare Earth R&D Center of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Inner Mongolia Rare Earth Functional Materials Innovation Center have been introduced successively. The scientific and technological innovation capability of the rare earth industry has been significantly improved.
In the rare earth permanent magnet industry, 50 related companies have gathered, with a diversified development pattern of products such as sintered permanent magnets, bonded permanent magnets, samarium-cobalt permanent magnets, and cerium-iron-boron magnets. Among them, there are 20 rare earth permanent magnet materials companies, including Jinli Permanent Magnets, Earth Panda, Tianhe Magnets, Yunsheng Strong Magnets, Jinshan Magnets, etc.; 17 rare earth permanent magnet post-processing components and supporting enterprises, including Insite, Heng Yuciyuan, Honghao Xinda, etc.; 13 magnetic material application companies, including CRRC Motor, Changan Permanent Magnet, Zhongke Intelligent, Jiangxin Micro Motor, Xibaobowei, etc. The products involve wind power robots, mobile phone cameras, medical equipment, etc. Terminal field. The designed production capacity of rare earth permanent magnet materials will reach 65,000 tons. In 2020, the output of rare earth permanent magnet alloy materials will be 12,351 tons, an increase of 34%, and the rough rare earth permanent magnet materials will be 17,127 tons, an increase of 34%. The output value of permanent magnet materials accounts for 90% of the output value of new rare earth materials.
Regarding the rare earth hydrogen storage and polishing industry, there are currently 8 enterprises in the rare earth hydrogen storage industry, including 4 rare earth hydrogen storage materials companies, including Rare Aoke, Sande Battery, Zhongke Heanda, and Xinpu New Materials; application of rare earth hydrogen storage Four companies, including Haoming New Power, Rare Aoke Battery, Evergreen Battery and other nickel-hydrogen battery companies, have initially formed a rare earth hydrogen storage material and downstream rare earth nickel-hydrogen battery industry chain. The designed production capacity of rare earth hydrogen storage materials reaches 10,000 tons, and the output in 2020 is 2,438 tons, ranking first in the country, accounting for more than 30% of the country's total. There are 10 existing enterprises in the rare earth polishing industry, including Tianjiao Qingmei, Haorui Rare Earth, Hailiang Technology, Zhongke Yuhang, Lichen Technology, Xinyu Rare Earth and other enterprises, and initially formed a rare earth lanthanum cerium-rare earth polishing material industrial chain. The designed production capacity of rare earth polishing materials will reach 36,000 tons, and the output will be 11,161 tons in 2020. The output ranks first in the country, accounting for more than 35% of the country's total.
In terms of rare earth catalysis and alloy industry, there are 5 rare earth catalyst materials and equipment enterprises, mainly including Seagate environmental protection catalyst promoter, Langte technology catalyst, Zhongke Mongolian new material synthetic rubber rare-earth catalyst and medicinal rare-earth catalyst; rare earth promoter The products include the northern rare earth PVC heat stabilizer; the rare earth coloring agent products include the Zhongke Century rare earth coloring agent. The industrial chain of rare earth lanthanum and cerium-rare earth catalysts, additives, colorants and materials has been formed. 6 rare earth alloy material companies, including rare earth bearing steel, rare earth special steel, Jiatai Metal Rare Earth Titanium Alloy, Huijin New Material Rare Earth Aluminum Alloy, Jingtao Zirconium Color Rare Earth Stabilized Zirconia Nanopowder Material, etc. Enterprises, the application of rare earth in steel, aluminum, copper and other fields continues to expand, and they have a good foundation for the development of the rare earth + alloy industry.
