At the end of 2012, China’s aluminum wheel capacity approached 180 million pcs, while the sales volume surpassed 120 million pcs, with the capacity utilization above 70%. In particular, some 45 million pcs were sold in domestic market, while the rest 75 million ones were exported to overseas markets.
In 2011-2012, the Chinese market witnessed severe overcapacity of both alumina and electrolytic aluminum, leading to a nosedive of alumina price. In order to dissolve capacities, a great many of alumina enterprises tapped into the aluminum wheel market successively, causing oversupply and cut-throat competition in the market. Consequently, the profits of SMEs fell sharply. By contrast, large industrial players expand market further relying on their scale advantage and improve qualities of top-grade products. A case in point was CITIC Dicastal Wheel Manufacturing, the wheel output of which hit 27 million pcs in 2012, with the revenue substantially rising by 27.8% from the preceding year, despite the slight output growth of 12.5% against the 24 million ones over 2011.

China Rare Earth Industry Report, 2012 - 2015: http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis/166015
As the world’s major rare earth country, China occupies 50% of the total global rare earth reserves, but also provides about 90% of the global rare earth products every year. In order to protect rare earth resources, it has promulgated a number of policies over the years to limit over-exploitation and export of rare earth, including mining license control, total quantity control, export quotas, special invoice system, etc., whose implementation has caused supply decrease and price increase as far as Chinese rare earth products are concerned.
In China, rare earth consumption can be divided into traditional field and new material field, of which, the former covers metallurgy / machinery, petroleum / chemicals, glass / ceramics, agriculture / light industry / textile, etc., and the latter mainly refers to permanent magnet materials, luminescent materials, polishing materials and hydrogen storage materials.
