Neodymium block magnets are currently selling for about $10 per cubic inch; Still about five times higher than two years ago. Our wind turbine magnets, N50 Grade 2 x 1 x 1/2 inch were $2.35 each. 24 required for a 6Kw turbine cost us $56.40 then. Now the same group will cost us $200 more per generator...for the magnets alone! Our product is still on hold. Art Devine, Magnetic Arts Div. Escondido, CA

You are a step late. China already was dumping and then added export restrictions to meet their internal needs. The rest of the world is now paying a premium

I suspect that China's game plan, once mines and production are running, will be to dump its material on the market and force them out of business. Then repeat. It's called the "free market" a euphemism for monopoly.

RETA will be based in Washington but it is very important to note that it it not a U.S. industry alliance. It is an international alliance based in the US.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
