U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
Industrial Base Surveys and Assessments
Strategic Materials Survey

The U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), in coordination with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), is conducting a survey and assessment to evaluate the supply chains associated with several materials considered important to DOD programs and systems. These materials include metals – magnesium and titanium; carbon fiber materials – polyacrylonitrite-based (PAN) fibers and bismaleimide (BMI) matrices; and rare earth elements (REE) – dysprosium, erbium, neodymium, terbium, and ytterbium.

The principal goal of this assessment is to assist the DOD in understanding the health and competitiveness of important material suppliers and to identify specific issues and challenges facing the industry. Information collected will cover government and commercial revenue, financial and operational performance, employment and skills, production capacity, research and development, unique supplier capabilities, and other topics. The resulting dataset and report will assist DOD agencies in developing targeted planning and acquisition strategies designed to ensure the availability of materials critical to defense missions and programs.

The survey is designed to provide information on companies, universities, non-profits, and government agencies providing REE and/or REE-related products and services. Your participation is vital to ensure a comprehensive dataset for the assessment.
