Part 3: A Look Ahead
In this three-part series, we looked at how new demand drivers combined with shrinking supply surplus and low pricing is evidence that platinum is fighting back from recent struggles – and still has a place to shine in every bullion portfolio.
What’s Ahead For Platinum?
No one has a crystal ball to predict where platinum is headed, or how long it will take to get there. But we do know that platinum demand is projected to increase more than supply at a steady rate in the coming years. The metal is no longer relying on old sources of demand, it’s finding new uses in industry, and once again it’s attracting long-term investors. Supply is scarce, surplus is shrinking, and sentiment is at historic lows.
In the broader view, a slowing economy, monetary easing, ongoing trade woes, a volatile stock market, and a softening US Dollar are all ingredients, either alone or in unison, that are finally breathing life back into precious metals markets in general, including platinum.
Everyone knows that it’s smart practice to diversify with precious metals in a long-term investment portfolio. But it’s just as wise to broaden your precious metals basket with a healthy mix of monetary metals (like gold) and industrial metals (like platinum). Gold and silver may be in the headlines, but one could argue that with its increasing demand, scarcity, and value, platinum offers even greater long-term upside at today’s levels.
Platinum in bullion form continues to be in strong physical demand. So take advantage of these favorable conditions and make platinum a part of your conversations with customers today.
