Factors affecting Silver Rates in India

The factors which affect the silver price in India are listed below

  • Industrial demand – Silver has a very large industrial demand nowadays as it is used in numerous ways for making cell phones, touch screens, solar panels, and RFID chips. It is also used in the medical industry which also accounts for more demand for silver. These factors largely affect the demand of silver in the industry which in turn affects the price of silver making it an expensive commodity.
  • Import duties – Silver is largely imported in India and the price of silver is directly affected by the import duty levied on it. A higher import duty on silver tends to increase its price in the market.
  • Gold prices – Usually, prices of gold and silver are closely linked. When there is a rise in price of gold, the rate of silver increases and decreases with the fall in the price of gold.
  • Oil prices – Mining is a capital-intensive process which is dependent on the price of oil. Hence, when oil prices increase, the cost of mining silver also increases causing an increase in the current price of silver.
  • Trade deficits – Trade deficit is dependent upon the amount of imports, the greater the imported commodities, the more will be country’s trade deficit. As the trade deficit increases, the government introduces additional taxes such as silver imports which lead to an increase in the rate of silver in India.
  • Silver standards – In India, silver is available in various purities and grades, but the purest form of silver is 99.9% silver which is known as ‘fine silver’. Fine silver is extensively used as a catalyst in the electrical industry because high purity silver is very soft which cannot be used for making silver ornaments or jewellery. One of the most commonly used silver standards is the sterling silver, which has a purity of 92.5% and is considered to be the ideal purity for making silver jewellery and coins.

Chandi Measurements

Silver is measured in grams and ounces. Thus, if you go to the market to buy silver, it can be measured either in grams, kilograms, million ounces, troy ounces, short tonne, metric tonne, etc.

The fineness or purity of silver is measured in terms of the percentage of silver in the alloy. Fineness means the part of silver per 1000 parts. Thus, 925 fineness means 92.5% silver in the final product. Copper is the main sub-ingredient, which is added in silver coins to increase their durability.

Why are Chandi Cheaper in India?

One of the main reasons behind the rising popularity of the silver metal in India is the fact that silver is an affordable investment option. Chandi price in India is reasonable as it can be purchased with just 1/70th of the price of the gold. The reason behind this reasonable chandi price in the country is the fact that there is a gradual rise in silver imports, in comparison to gold. Apart from that, silver consumption in the market has been continuous because the purchase of silver is not limited to the price factor. Indeed, it is a regularly bought metal in the Indian markets, due to a variety of usage. Thus, silver is a regular element in the Indian market and is purchased more familiarly in comparison to gold. The familiarity of silver in the Indian household brings us cheaper chandi rates in comparison to gold.

Silver Demand in India

Silver is a precious metal and is also used heavily as an industrial metal. In the world, silver is demanded more for its industrial uses, whereas in India, demand for silver is more for jewelry and silverware.

Since India is not a high producer of silver, most of its silver demands are met through imports. India ranks 5th in terms of silver consumption throughout the world, and its major consumption comes from the rural population who view it as a precious metal to invest in. However, the demand for silver in growing economies has been on the rise, and India is no exception. This growing demand is for industrial use in view of which it is expected that in the next few years, the import of silver will rise in India.
