How is it going to influence the world? And how long it can be maintained? One clear example is when China which provides up to 90 percent of the world’s rare earth supply began to reduce its annual export of rare earths by 40 percent in July 2010. As you can see from the diagram, the price of rare earths rose up drastically due to China’s action. According to Sydney-based Lynas Corp (2010), “the price of neodymium oxide used in magnets in BlackBerrys has surged more than fourfold to $88.5 a kilogram from $19.12 in 2010 because of rising demand and reduced supply from China”.

Furthermore, when Xiaomi expanded to new high-volume countries like India, Singapore and Malaysia, the market for high-end phones were rather non existent.
