La plata, a diferencia del oro, es un metal precioso industrial. Además de la demanda de inversores, existe una demanda constante de plata para ser utilizada en una gran variedad de procesos industriales, desde potabilización de agua, espejos, fotografía de rayos X, baterías, aparatos electrónicos, celulares, computadoras, etc.

El consumo industrial de plata en 2010 volvió casi a los niveles de 2008 y 2009, y seguirá creciendo en 2011, aportando un factor de peso de crecimiento constante, a pesar de las variaciones que se puedan sufrir por la volatilidad especulativa.
