What are strategic metals


Strategic metals, which are sometimes also known as rare earths, denote metals that are indispensable for the continued existence of our highly developed civilization. They represent a new and extremely attractive form of capital investment, as they (just like gold and silver) are stable in value, but will increase their real value in the future due to increasing demand. In the following article, we are going to provide you with extensive information about strategic metals and rare earths.

What are strategic metals?

A total of 29 elements such as antimony, bismuth, molybdenum and hafnium are referred to as strategic metals. In addition to being used in alloys, they are particularly indispensable for the electronics sector. Without strategic metals, neither cars nor computers would exist. Rare earths will therefore play an extremely important role in technology, especially in the future. Nowadays, strategic metals are required in around 80% of all branches of industry.

Advantages of strategic metals as an investment

There are many attractive benefits to investing in strategic metals; while in the past it was only possible to invest in rare earths through stocks, it has only recently become possible to physically acquire rare earths. This makes special sense for several reasons: On the one hand, strategic metals are stable in value. In contrast to money, which only has an ideal value, strategic metals retain their value 100% even in the event of inflation. Strategic metals thus offer a much higher level of security than any bank in the world. On the other hand, strategic metals will show an enormous increase in value in the future due to their increasing importance and demand. This is already illustrated by the continuous price increases for rare earths in recent years.

Antimony - the substance of the future

The metal antimony is currently enjoying particular popularity among the strategic metals. There are several reasons for this: On the one hand, antimony has an extremely large area of ‚Äč‚Äčapplication. On the other hand, it has a relatively low price compared to other rare earths such as hafnium, which is up to 600% more expensive. Furthermore, the metal has recorded an enormous increase in value since 2009, although the end of this price is far from in sight.


Investing in strategic metals has become one of the most promising types of investments in recent years. Due to the enormous security of these investments and the great increases in value that they will show in the future, these investments are unreserved and recommended for everyone.
