China currently has a monopoly over the global rare earth elements market accounting for 97% of the global production and 50% of the global reserves. In a language referring to the energy crises of the seventies, former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping had stated in a 1992 speech,"the Middle East has its oil, and China has rare earth.

IMARC Group, one of the worlds’s leading research and advisory firms in its new report entitled “The Global Rare Earth Elements Market 2011-2015: Is the Hype Justified?” finds that China’s awareness on its rare earth monopoly has driven it to exploit political mileage from the situation on various instances. According to the report, in September 2010, China halted its entire rare earth exports to Japan when they arrested the captain of a Chinese fishing boat which had collided with two Japanese patrol vessels in disputed territorial waters. Similarly, In October 2010, Chinese authorities stopped all rare earth shipments for ten days, effectively rupturing trade to the US and Europe.

The report cited China’s low production and processing costs as one of the main factors driving the country’s dominance in this market. The reports found numerous factors behind china’s low production and processing costs. These included cheap labor, lack of proper regulations related to working conditions/environment and a strong government support. China’s strong in-house expertise was also regarded as a major reason behind its rare earth monopoly. Findings suggested that current capabilities to process rare earth elements into finished products are currently limited mainly to Chinese sources. China currently had a significant advantage over other rare earth producing countries in terms of mining, separation, refining, alloying, and purification of rare earths.
