Both sentences are poorly constructed. Between the two I would go with the second one.

My fault. I am trying to see if 'demand for' or 'demand in' is correct, I have edited the above sentences.

"demand for" should be followed by the object which is in demand ie, platinum

"demand in" is correctly used for the field/place where the object is in demand.
