Silver – a metal with shining perspectives

The use of silver for storing value and jewelry production has been common for centuries. Increasingly, however, its relevance for industrial manufacturing processes is growing. One reason: Silver has excellent properties when it comes to conducting heat and electricity.

It has long been impossible to imagine the ever-growing electronics industry without it. Another reason is that silver has an antibacterial effect, making it valuable for medical technology and other areas, such as water treatment and the development of new impregnation techniques. Against this background, industry experts see clear signals for a future rise in the price of silver.

In the future, silver has reasonable prospects of once again becoming what it has historically been more than once: the "little man's gold".
