Silver Market to Witness Explosive Demand
Silver is an element which possesses highest electrical and thermal conductivity as compared to other metals. Silver is harder than other metals such as gold. It is obtained from ores and native form. Lead, copper, copper-nickel and lead-zinc are the principal ores from which silver is extracted. It is also very malleable and ductile. It is considered as one of the precious metals and is used to make ornaments, silver coins, jewelry and utensils among others. Silver is used in various industrial applications such as electroplating and as a catalyst in some of the chemical reactions. Silver compounds such as silver nitrates are used in various applications such as biocides and disinfectants. Some of its compounds such as silver iodide, silver chloride, silver nitrates are also used in paints and coatings especially for anti-microbial coatings.

The growing consumption for silver is mainly driven by huge demand from the industrial applications market. The industrial application involves auto catalysts, super capacitors and water purification among others. Jewelry is anticipated to be the second largest application for the silver market.

Once cell phones go mainstream, silver will go parabolic
Right, plus solar power and complex circuit boards in your tv need silver too.

Is this article from 2003?
Or 1999... I had to hit the back button when I saw the claim that photography was the major use for silver in the US... Then forward again to double check the article's date and marvel at its quaint lunacy.

Watching fox on you tube last couple weeks I noticed lots of commercials selling metals. Even with that I think demand is still lower than last couple years. I'd love to buy some eagles but at 3 bucks plus over spot it doesn't make much sense.
What we need is an old fashioned banking crisis similar to 07/08. That should get things moving.

I have a feeling that we'll never again have an "old fashioned banking crisis". It's going to be different this time. Just as Southfork stated above... ;)

From what I read demand is down for a lot of non essential items with attributes (speculation) given to the increasing costs of health care...
