  • Industrial demand - platinum is used in a range of applications from pace-makers to anti-cancer drugs to hydrogen power cells. 
  • Jewellery demand - Platinum is considered to be more exclusive than gold. It is so admired that the name ‘platinum’ is often used to denote something of the highest status, such as platinum artist, platinum card. 
  • Investment demand - thanks to its rarity and industrial applications, platinum is considered a lucrative investment opportunity 


 

Supply of platinum is an interesting topic because it is so rare. There is 30 times more gold on planet earth than there is platinum! Very often the platinum price today is a good snapshot of any concerns regarding platinum supply. Platinum supply is very sensitive to any changes in the political situations of the countries in which it is mined, particularly South Africa, Over 75% of the world’s platinum supply comes from here.
