Silver is a wonder material - for sheer versatility, there's no competition in the precious metals.
They may call it the "poor man's gold," but it's critical to industry and beyond.
As the metal with the highest conductivity, silver has become indispensable to electronics and high-tech energy. Silver paste is used in 90% of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, the most common type of solar panels.
Everyday applications need more and more of the precious white metal, as it's now commonly found in water purification, solar panel production, and anti-bacterial applications, to name but a few.
Constant innovation is providing an unending source of ways to use silver, meaning its potential demand is immense.
Meanwhile, silver supply may have just peaked while all of this was happening.
