It also serves as a chemical catalyst in pharmaceutical production. However, the jewelry business has a significant impact on gold demand. Silver has traditionally been used in photography. Nevertheless, its applications are expanding into new markets, including solar cells and the production of cell phone and laptop batteries. Platinum and palladium are ductile, malleable metals with excellent chemical resistance. As a result, they are often used in electronics, automotive emission control systems, and as catalysts for chemical reactions. However, these metals are less abundant than copper, gold and silver. All these variables combine to provide a vibrant global market for precious metals.
An increase in precious metals trading activity is a favorable sign for market growth over the forecast period. The market is driven by the increase in the number of marriages where jewelry is commonly used and the growing use of plated jewelry by the younger generation.
