China has become the world's biggest silver market, according to an industry report, both as a physical investment and in paper trading of silver futures and other similar products.


In 2009, the country started offering investors the chance to buy silver bullion bars, and within two years the net demand for silver bars and coins soared to 17 million Moz, equivalent to some $600 million, making up 8 percent of global net purchases, said the report, compiled by Thomson Reuters GFMS.
