    What is the most important factor driving silver prices higher?
    [Deleted] commented 5 years ago
    Fundamentally speaking, the rapid increase in the industrial demand for silver and its relative short supply has pushed its prices higher. <br>Silver, at present, is being used in electronics, in manufacture of solar panels, in medicines and medical treatment and for many other purposes. Unlike gold and some other precious metals, silver actually has its industrial uses.<br>
