Silver demand and supply trends
Von Swiss Resource Capital AG
Silver is benefiting particularly from the green energy transition and is thus likely to be in strong demand in the long term. Fundamentals are very good, with all demand sectors showing gains. Markets are still being impacted by the effects of the Covid pandemic, geopolitical concerns have increased, and the recent sell-off in equities is still ongoing. On top of that, rising interest rates are hurting precious metals prices. But the silver market has supply-demand dynamics that should be examined more closely.
Silver inventories have been in deficit since last year. Silver supplies are tight and analysts at Metals Fokus, for example, forecast a significant deficit in 2022, amounting to 72 million ounces of silver. Silver grades have also been declining for several years. In order to maintain or increase the supply of silver, silver companies would have to invest more in exploration and development. But miners also have to deal with inflation. Costs are expected to rise because exploration and production cannot succeed without fuels. And these, as everyone knows, have become very expensive. So, it's difficult to imagine that mining companies will greatly increase their activities. And there is also a shortage of skilled workers in silver mining. In 2021, for example, total known silver resources grew by only one percent. That's where it might pay to bet on companies with silver in their projects.
There is Discovery Silver - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS8MreV3_mo -, for example. Its flagship Cordero project is one of the largest silver deposits in the world. Drilling is underway and the general conditions are excellent.
Tier One Silver - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehXXANrBHsQ&t=205s - is active in silver, gold and base metals in Peru. Flagship project is the Curibaya project, which has high grade silver, gold and copper assays.
