Precious metals are rare in nature and possess unique characteristics such as high conductivity, corrosion resistance, and catalytic capabilities, which make them suitable for various industrial applications. The four major precious metals - gold, silver, platinum, and palladium are also used for investment purposes. According to Grand View Research, the global precious metals market is estimated to witness a substantial growth in coming years. The stable Indian bullion market and stronger global growth are also expected to drive demand for gold jewelry in coming years. On top of that, increasing industrial demand for sliver, specifically from solar energy, is expected to boost the market growth. In the meantime, palladium is widely used for industrial purposes and its demand is directly proportional to growth of automobiles and electronics. Other industrial applications of precious metals include solar and nuclear energy, photography, cutlery, antibiotics, computer parts, oil refining, space travel vehicles, bushings, and decorative. In 2019, the global precious metals market attained a production volume of almost 33,<span xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" class="xn-chron">139 MT</span>. In the future, the market is expected to witness a stable growth during the forecast period of 2020-2025, growing at a CAGR of 2.34%. And in total, the precious metal production is projected to reach nearly 39 KMT in 2025, according to Expert Market Research.

According to Bloomberg, the metal is a key component in pollution-control devices for cars and trucks, and the metal&#39;s price doubled in little more than a year, making it more expensive than gold. Then, earlier this week, palladium prices broke records once again; This Wednesday, March palladium futures jumped 8.1% on the day, trading at approximately <span xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" class="xn-money">USD 2,504</span> an ounce. The increase is influenced by the supply-demand outlook, which continued to boost prices to new highs. Spot prices hit record highs of <span xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" class="xn-money">USD 2,590</span> an ounce earlier in the session. &#34;At the start of the year, we were looking for upside risk for the palladium market, but prices have rallied further than we thought they would.

Better, according to an NBC News report, market research firm &#34;NPD found that 16 percent of Americans say they &#39;regularly&#39; use plant-based alternatives to meat and dairy products, such as almond milk and meat substitutes. More unexpected, though, is that 89 percent of the people eating all of these tell NPD that they&#39;re not vegetarian or vegan — they just like variety in their diets.&#34; Fast food giants are jumping on the trend, as well, including McDonald&#39;s, Burger King, White Castle, Dunkin, and even Starbucks. It&#39;s all creating sizable opportunity for companies such as <b xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Else Nutrition Holdings Inc. </b>(TSXV:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/BABY#TSXV" rel="nofollow">BABY</a>)(OTCQB:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/BABYF#OTCQB" rel="nofollow">BABYF</a>), <b xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Burcon NutraScience Corp. </b>(TSX:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/BSU#TSX" rel="nofollow">BSU</a>)(OTCQB:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/BUROF#OTCQB" rel="nofollow">BUROF</a>), <b xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Beyond Meat Inc. </b>(NASDAQ:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/BYND#NASDAQ" rel="nofollow">BYND</a>), <b xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Kellogg Company </b>(NYSE:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/K#NYSE" rel="nofollow">K</a>), and <b xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Tyson Foods Inc. </b>(NYSE:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/TSN#NYSE" rel="nofollow">TSN</a>).</p> <p xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><b xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Else Nutrition Holdings Inc. </b>(TSXV:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/BABY#TSXV" rel="nofollow">BABY</a>)(OTCQB:<a class="ticker" href="https://www.benzinga.com/stock/BABYF#OTCQB" rel="nofollow">BABYF</a>) <b xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">BREAKING NEWS</b>: Else Nutrition Holdings Inc., a developer of <u xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><a xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" target="_blank" href="https://www.elsenutrition.com/" rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow">novel plant based infant nutrition</a></u> is pleased to announce that it has entered into a investment agreement with NewH<sup xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">2 </sup>Limited, a subsidiary of Health and Happiness (H&amp;H) International Holdings Limited, a Hong Kong Stock Exchange Company (HK:1112), pursuant to which NewH<sup xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">2 </sup>has agreed to an investment of <span xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" class="xn-money">C$5.75 million</span> in the Company, as part of an aggregate private placement offering of up to <span xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" class="xn-money">C$8.0 million</span>.
