The global precious metals market exhibited moderate growth during 2014-2019. Precious metals are naturally occurring elements that are characterized by their high luster. These metals are rare, hard, less reactive and have high economic value compared to base metals. They are also ductile, malleable, resistant to corrosion and good conductors of heat and energy. As a result, they find applications in the manufacturing of jewelry, consumer electronics, automobiles, chemicals and medical equipment across the globe. Precious metals, such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium, are also used as valuable assets for investment purposes.
Global Precious Metals Market Growth Drivers:
The market is experiencing growth on account of changing lifestyles and inflating disposable incomes of individuals. Apart from this, due to the rising environmental concerns, leading market players in different industry verticals are investing in the recycling of precious metals that can further be utilized for manufacturing heart pacemakers and artificial cochlea. Moreover, governments of various countries are implementing stringent emission regulations, which, in turn, is contributing to the market growth, as these metals are used for purifying exhaust gases in automobiles. However, on account of the rising cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), governments of various countries have announced complete lockdowns as a preventive measure to combat the pandemic. This has disrupted supply chains and halted operations of several manufacturing units, which, in turn, have led to inventory shortages. On the other hand, the investments in precious metals have increased as a means to survive the rapidly changing market conditions. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global precious metals market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
