Silver demand had a phenomenal 2015, with retail investment and jewelry fabrication both reaching all-time highs.

According to the Silver Institute’s World Silver Survey 2016, metal demand for photovoltaic installation climbed 23 percent in 2015, offsetting some of the losses we continue to see in photographic applications.
