Silver price is driven by Industrial demand

Both silver and platinum prices are supported by robust industrial demand. More than half of silver’s demand comes from industrial applications, such as in electrical and electronics, while a quarter of platinum’s supplies are used by the automotive industry (each catalytic converter uses 0.10 to 0.25 troy ounces of platinum, equivalent to $100-230 per vehicle at current prices). - John Baffes
