Palladium is an extremely rare, silver-white Precious Metal with a relatively low melting point and low density. As a naturally white Precious Metal, Palladium will keep its brilliant color for life. Over 50% of the Palladium supply is used in the automotive industry to create catalytic converters, which reduce the amount of carbon monoxide emitted from automobiles. Palladium is also used in electronics, dentistry, jewelry, groundwater treatment and chemical applications.
Palladium is an attractive investment because of its numerous applications, limited supply and increasing demand. Physical Palladium has a high value-to-density ratio and is an efficient way for investors to achieve exposure to the Precious Metal.
Palladium surged to a record amid bets that the Chinese auto industry will boost global demand amid tight supplies of the metal used in vehicle pollution-control devices.
Leon Coetzer CEO at Jubilee Metals Group said:
“Palladium is flying again on the back of tighter air emission controls in China vehicles. New record prices. Great timing for Jubilee producing record production of PGM’s and palladium at this time.”
