The offered available supplies were far behind the commercial demand for these metals. The demand thus increased by approximately 16% last year while the supply level remained flat during 2010. This made the global platinum market balanced with the upward trend of requirements growth persisting well in the years to come.

With a major rise in the post-recession glass and chemical industries, the expansion of the demand for platinum-group metals in industrial applications jumped up by around 48%. At the same time jewelry sector remained lackluster or even reducing during 2010.
