Silver Demand to Increase by 20-Million Ounces by 2018

According to a new report released by the Silver Institute, the demand for silver is expected to exceed projected global GDP growth. Silver demand should grow by 5% per year from 2014 to 2016. Demand for industrial silver, which accounts for over 50% of global demand, will rise due to its use in three key areas: flexible electronics displays, LEDs, and semiconductor computer chips.

“With the introduction of these advanced uses of silver in the electrical and electronics category, which last year provided over 40% of total silver industrial demand, along with growth in established uses, we should see silver industrial demand develop even further, especially as economies grow globally.” – Michael DiRienzo, Executive Director of the Silver Institute.
