Factors affecting silver prices in Anantapur 


The price of silver in Anantapur has been quite volatile recently. This is because the rate of silver depends upon several factors, including geopolitics. Moreover, India meets half of its physical silver demand from imports, and the prices largely depend upon international conditions.

Import duty


Because large quantities of silver are imported into the country, the prices in Anantapur are directly dependent upon the import tariff rate. It means a high import duty increases the silver prices in Anantapur. 


Oil Prices


Silver mining is an energy-intensive process where most of the energy is derived from fossil fuels. Besides, importing silver via sea routes also needs a constant oil supply. So, the rate of silver is directly proportional to crude oil prices in the international market.


Inflation


Traditionally, gold and silver have provided protection from inflation. As a result, after gold, people look up to silver as a fallback to tide over unfavourable times.
