Superconductors: Fertile Land for Investors - Strategic Materials?

Click here for ABC story on 50K superconductor film technology - this means the material will superconduct nearer liquid Nitrogen temp. meaning the economics start to point toward feasibility of the application of this technology.

Right now liquid Helium, expensive and rare, is necessary to keep materials superconducting - in an MRI magnet for example. By creating a superconductor that requires relatively cheap and abundant Nitrogen liquid the costs and lots of other obstacles are removed from putting the superconductors into profitable production.

Should the materials involved be considered strategic materials?
