Project delays/cancellations (due to low prices of PMs), new mining taxes & unstable governments will result in significantly less PMs produced for years into the future. But governments around the world continue to print way more paper currencies resulting in debasement of those currencies. It's thus inevitable that PMs will resume their price increases sometime in the near future. Should a critical number of people world-wide lose confidence in paper money, there would be a rush to PMs that would overwhelm the bankster's efforts to suppress the price of PMs and result in a scarcity or absence of physical PMs, at least temporarily.
