Silver prices are currently trading above $27 an ounce. That’s a whopping 86% rise from a year ago, when the spot price was around $14.5 an ounce.

If you want to know where Silver prices are heading next, then just take a look at the booming gains across the rest of the industrial metals from Copper, Iron Ore to Palladium.

Last week, Iron Ore broke $200 a ton for the first time ever. Palladium broke above $3,000 to hit a new record high and Copper prices surged more than 10% to surpass an all-time high.

Silver is a key component in everything from electric vehicles, renewable energy to solar power technology. However, supply is limited, which means there is a risk of a real Silver squeeze this year.

As governments around the world pursue more aggressive Green Energy and Infrastructure policies to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2030 or sooner – this alone will continue to be a major driver of Silver demand for years to come.
