The Silver Institute

Silver Industrial Demand Rebounded in 2017; Min...

NEW YORK, April 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Industrial demand for silver, fueled by record photovoltaic growth, rose in 2017 for the first time since 2013. A stronger global economy led to healthy demand from the semi-conductor market, resulting in greater silver offtake in electrical and electronics applications as well as brazing alloys and solders. The jewelry and silverware sectors also experienced noteworthy gains in 2017. On the supply side, global mine supply fell for the second consecutive year, following an uninterrupted streak of 13 annual increases prior to 2016. Silver scrap supply, which has been in retreat since 2012, again registered a loss. These factors led to a tightening of the supply/demand balance, contributing to a physical deficit of 26 million ounces (Moz) in 2017, the fifth consecutive annual deficit.
These findings, along with other key segments of the silver market, are discussed in World Silver Survey 2018, released today by the Silver Institute and produced on its behalf by the GFMS Team at Thomson Reuters (GFMS).
Silver Industrial Demand
Global silver industrial fabrication demand returned to growth in 2017, increasing 4 percent to 599.0 Moz. This was the first rise in silver industrial fabrication since 2013. This growth was bolstered by another year of impressive photovoltaic demand, rising 19 percent in 2017, the result of a 24 percent increase in global solar panel installations. Brazing alloy and solder silver fabrication recorded a 4 percent annual rise to 57.5 Moz, boosted mainly by solid growth from China and Japan. 
The surge in electronics, most notably in semi-conductor fabrication demand, led to the electrical and electronics segments delivering the first annual increase in offtake in this category since 2010, with 242.9 Moz consumed last year. Silver demand for the production of ethylene oxide retreated by a third from 2016 volumes to 6.9 Moz, mostly due to a decline in new installations. GFMS estimates that silver's use in photography, which fell by 3 percent last year to 44.0 Moz, appears to have stabilized, with renewed interest in various photographic applications utilizing silver, only falling marginally over the last few years.
Silver Jewelry and Silverware Demand
Silver jewelry demand moved 2 percent higher in 2017 to 209.1 Moz. India was chiefly responsible for the gain, rising 7 percent over 2016 volumes. Demand also picked up strongly in North America, with the United States posting a 12 percent rise to an all-time high. Global demand for silverware jumped by 12 percent last year to 58.4 Moz, led by a strong recovery in demand from India, which experienced a 19 percent increase. North America also posted solid gains, rising 5 percent to 1.6 Moz.
Silver Supply
Global silver mine production fell by 4.1 percent in 2017, experiencing its second consecutive annual decline to record 852.1 Moz. The decline was mainly credited to a series of supply disruptions across the Americas. Another leading factor in the drop was due to the primary silver and gold sectors, where production fell by a combined 29.4 Moz. Of the key producing countries, Peru and China registered subtle dips, followed by more acute losses in Australia and Argentina. Offsetting those losses was higher output from Mexico, which was once again the world's top silver producing country, trailed by Peru, China, Russia and Chile.
Supply from primary silver mines decreased by 9 percent in 2017 to contribute 28 percent of total mine supply. The lead/zinc sector contributed 36 percent of by-product output, followed by copper at 23 percent and gold at 12 percent.
Silver scrap supply fell to 138.1 Moz, marking its sixth successive yearly decline.  Lower scrap flows from Asia, mainly China, driven by a lack of incentives from both suppliers and consumers to recycle their valuables, is chiefly responsible for the fall. Supply from the western world was marginally higher, driven by increased volumes from the United States and Europe.
Above-ground stocks rose 3 percent last year. Of the four exchanges that report silver stocks, three saw total silver inventory growth of 2 percent in 2017; COMEX in the United States, the SHFE and the SGE in China. In contrast, silver inventories held at TOCOM declined dramatically by 98 percent, driven by strong industrial demand in Japan.
GFMS reports that government sales of silver were once again absent from the silver market in 2017. Lastly, in the supply category, the delta-adjusted hedge book inched higher by 1.4 Moz, ending last year at 21.5 Moz.
Silver Price and Investment
The annual average silver price fell by a slight 0.5 percent to $17.05/oz last year, with prices trading in a $15.22/oz - $18.56/oz range.  That said, last year's average silver price represents an 8.7 percent increase over the average posted just two years ago of $15.68/oz. 
Identifiable investment, which consists of net-physical bar investment, coins and medals purchased, and net-changes to exchange traded product (ETP) holdings, reached 153.5 Moz in 2017 a 40 percent decline from the previous year. This was primarily the result of a 35 percent decline in coin and medal fabrication, led by lower demand in the United States, Canada and China. Physical bar demand slipped by 16 percent last year. 
In contrast, total global ETP holdings increased by 2.4 Moz to finish 2017 at 669.8 Moz. In value terms, total ETP holdings increased 4 percent to $11.3 billion, as the silver price advanced throughout the year.
About the World Silver Survey, the Silver Institute and Survey Ordering Information
The Silver Institute has published this annual report on the global silver market since 1990, to bring dependable supply and demand statistics to market participants and the public.The 28th edition of the Silver Institute's World Silver Survey was independently researched and compiled by the GFMS team at Thomson Reuters. World Silver Survey 2018 was sponsored by 20 companies and organizations from North and South America, Europe and Asia.

Making YOU Money Easter 2018

Hello Investor Folk !
Change of direction as new shares are bought into the fund.
new list ;

  Arian Silver   4K
  Aortech Int    4K
  Accrol            3K
  Akers              2K
  Crawshaw      1K
  IIP                  1K
  Others            1K

We shall keep under the ten shares in total . the others are two at present.
Off market shares do not count  ie BSP etc are just funds waiting to be realised ,one hopes .

As for the weeks ahead . I am happy with my current list . Of course one should always strive for more . Slowly slowly we are reaching Our 20K target . As long as the market does behave , good prospects lie ahead .
As for the market , yes there are actually overvalued /undervalued shares out there . My feeling is that the spread is back towards even .
The underlying bull trend remains until 2034. bbr391

   Happy Easter !

An addendum for Steve . As Jeesr have their head above the parapet concerning Accrol . One should be very confident that an offer is approaching .
On feels that Crawshaws will be taken over too .
Metro Baltic has nowt happening , legal wise this could be a couple of years yet until final settlement
is achieved .
Churchill & Oxus plod on as well ....................

Making YOU Money 17/03/2018

Hi there Mr Investor .
As usual coagulation has occurred in the bbr391 portfolio . Mainly to the benefit of Aortech International . Akers looks like $1 will be with us  within the month .

Aortech                   5K
GO GOAkers          2K
BSP                         3K
IIP                           1K

There are still enough undervalued shares to keep us all interested . But ,the overvalued list has begun to be occupied too , albeit only partial thus far .

My opinion for the coming years remains that 2034 will be our Nemisis ie 50%+ retreat .

Until then the expected minor dip may not have been here yet . But will arrive within the year . In fact It may have already begun .

Best of Luck with your trading .

Spandau Ballet will point the way for those of you unable to be attentive to the market`s whimsies.

Yiangos , stick with It
Michael buy gold
Akwasi love Silver
David good luck with your decision .
Steve patience with Ronan ( the fight continues) in IOM .

OPgen & Oracle Power 10/03/2018

Sometimes you look at a poor bedraggled share and think why is this poor little fellow so unloved ?
Opgen has several swords in the fire ,whether fruition will be achieved before the fire becomes too hot is a mystery .
My view is that there is value here .

Oracle power stunning news 09/03/2018 . Yet the market seems a little aloof . Your bucket should be getting filled by these castaway cheap shares . At 1.6p what could go wrong ?

Happy Mad March All

One must remember through this pullback . From whence we have come to where we are going . Check out Aiming for 2034 ( which I constantly update at the year`s end or thereabouts ) .

Luckily selling out of Path and getting to Rurelec , saved a few pence this week .

As the bottom two shares seem quite hard to trade at the moment .The list of off market shares Increased . Let Us All hope one day , one or more of them pay our patience .

Best of Luck All , bbr391 .
