The global precious metals market is driven by the growth of their end-use sectors such as automotive and jewelry. The boom in the automotive industry should propel the growth of several precious metals industries. The use of platinum in the automotive industry is believed to be increasing in emerging economies like India. The demand for palladium comes mainly from the automotive industry and will be driven by increased vehicle sales in countries like China and Europe, among other countries. The expansion of recycled automotive catalysts due to the incentive to collect and process old automotive catalysts will propel the increase in palladium supply. Precious metals, like the rhodium market, are being helped by growing demand for light vehicles from emerging economies. Global precious metals markets, like the silver industry, are expected to be aided by growing demand from its application sectors like the chemical industry. The platinum industry was also driven by increased demand from the chemical sector. The platinum industry is propelled forward by the increasing use of the metal in specialty silicones, which is the metal’s largest chemical end-use sector. The nitric acid industry is also a growing application area for platinum in the chemical industry.
