What is palladium?
Palladium is a silvery white metal that has the lowest melting point of all metals. Due to this unique feature, the worldwide industrial demand for palladium grew in both 2010 and 2011 by seven percent. About 65% of this demand for palladium comes from the automobile industry where it is used for catalytic converters in cars. Another 10% to 20% of the palladium supplied is used for industrial and medical applications, such as electronics, chemicals, glass and surgical and dental instruments. As well as this, palladium is also used as an alloy with gold for the production of white gold jewellery.

Investing in palladium
Investing in palladium is still a well-kept secret among professionals as the value of palladium has only recently been recognized and accepted. The metal is now known to be a cheaper alternative to platinum. An investment in palladium is therefore ideal for diversifying your investment portfolio.

The demand for palladium
The demand for palladium is growing in Europe and America, but also in countries such as China and India. Due to the growing production of catalysts for the automobile industry, this trend is likely to continue in the future. Sales of cars around the world is expected to rise, which means that tens of millions of vehicles will be rolled out of factories. That translates into millions of ounces of palladium in order to equip these vehicles with a catalytic converter. Palladium is also used as an alloy in white gold jewelry, dentistry and in microelectronics. The expectation is therefore that growing demand for palladium is likely to lead to a higher price of palladium.

Supply and demand
While the demand for palladium is high, the supply side looks weak. It is estimated that together Russia and South Africa supply about 85% of the palladium on the worldwide market. Russia has built up a stock, but this stock seems to be decreasing rapidly. South Africa’s production is faced with regular strikes and even the closure of several mines due to the poor conditions. This means that South African stock has shrunk to the lowest ever level.

Palladium coins and bars
Like all other precious metals, palladium is bought and sold in the form of palladium bars or coins. These are produced by well-known manufacturers like Umicore, Credit Suisse and Pamp Suisse. Palladium bars are available in many different sizes starting from 1 Troy ounce. The only government-issued palladium coin on the market today is the Canadian Maple Leaf.
