Unlike gold, silver is a significant industrial metal. More than half of the demand for silver is industrial, as the metal can be used for batteries, brazing and soldering, bearings, high-end electronics and is also used in cutting edge solar technology. A study conducted earlier this year by the Silver Institute argues that "the rise in solar power is arguably the most significant development for silver demand in recent years. This year, demand is expected to reach nearly 70 million ounces, an increase of around 40 percent year-on-year."
