Ferrite magnets are a commodity product available in a very wide range of shapes, sizes and grades. Ceramic magnets are easy to magnetize.

For years all magnets were natural magnets such as lodestone, a naturally magnetic iron ore. In 1952 magnets were made out of ceramic for the first time

They are very resistant to corrosion and generally do not need extra coatings for corrosion protection. They are resistant to demagnetization by outside fields. They are stronger than natural magnets
“They are made out of either powdered barium ferrite or powdered strontium ferrite. This powder is formed into the shape the magnet is to take by applying pressure to it and baking it. Neodymium magnets are pure metal alloys formed of neodymium, iron, and boron. They are sometimes formed by combining the different metals while molten and cooling them into solidity. Sometimes the metals are powdered, mixed and pressed together.” (https://sciencing.com/ceramic-vs-neodymium-magnets-6676039.html)
