Strategic Metals in Demand for Smart Phones & Co.

With strategic metals as tangible assets, you can benefit from the growth of the high-tech industry. Be it the expansion of the fiber optic internet, super-flat OLED screens, touchscreen technology or powerful computer chips: progress needs strategic metals.
Because of the interest in the latest high-tech products such as smart phones the demand for strategic metals is growing steadily. However, these raw materials are only available to a limited extent. Those who own strategic metals own the key raw materials of modern life: a strategic asset with potential.

Fiberglass Technology

Internet fulfilling current demands on data volume and speed would not be possible without fiber optic cables. The technology metal germanium ensures that data in fiber optic cables can be quickly and completely moved from A to B. In Germany, only about seven percent of households have a direct fiber optic connection (FTTH).

Fiber optic network is not only relevant for fast Internet at home. The construction of the 5G mobile network or so-called networked driving also depend on larger data volumes and faster data transfer. The demand of the industry for germanium is thus increasing for the foreseeable future.

Light-emitting diodes (LED) make it possible: ever flatter home entertainment screens, advertising displays with higher colour brilliance, large-area lightweight display panels and individual room lighting. The use of the semiconductors gallium and indium will make LED glow in different colours. In fact, without gallium, there would be no commercially usable LED color range.

Gallium and indium as semiconductors also improve the light output by increasing the conversion of energy into light emission. This saves energy. Only about a third of all German industrial areas have switched to LED technology and the lighting industry has one of the highest growth rates on the market at around 40 %. Good reasons to consider gallium and indium as a tangible asset.

In the digital age, almost all processes have been switched to computer technology. With the increasing demands on computing power of computers, the need for high-performance computer electronics is growing. Gallium-arsenide is a key raw material for wafers. These are base plates made of semiconductor materials for electronic components such as computer chips.

Gallium-arsenide wafers can withstand up to 200 °C heat, so they do not require expensive cooling systems and consume less electricity. Their electron speed is five times faster, so the computing power is higher.
