It is generally believed that, as the export quotas from China are not element specific, Chinese exporters are utilising quota in favour of the higher value rare earth elements. As a consequence, exports of certain lower value elements such as lanthanum and cerium, are being artificially restricted resulting in their prices being artificially inflated.
