9th March 2023, National: India’s gem and jewellery exports witnessed a resurgence in February, buoyed by the swift recovery of both the Chinese and Middle East markets.

Commenting on the surge in exports experienced during the month of February Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC said,“GJEPC is excited about the strong pace of demand observed by Indian exhibitors at the recent Hong Kong show, which revealed the untapped demand in the Chinese market. In February 2023, India experienced a noteworthy 32% surge in cut and polished diamond exports, which can be partly attributed to the strong demand from China and the Lunar New Year festivities. Additionally, thanks to the forward-thinking CEPA deal signed with the UAE, there was an equally impressive 45% increase in plain gold jewellery exports, indicating that the Middle East market is rebounding strongly after a slight dip. Furthermore, studded gold jewellery, which is primarily exported to the US, is also showing a promising improvement of around 20%.

Shah further added, “The Hong Kong market had experienced a negative trend in the last few months, but now we’re seeing signs of a rebound. This resurgence in Chinese consumption could potentially lead to even greater improvements. In China, the average savings rate is around 40%, which translates to trillions of dollars that could potentially be spent in a “revenge buying” frenzy, similar to what we’ve seen in other world markets after prolonged lockdown periods. As a result, we anticipate significant growth in the diamond and diamond jewelry industry over the next 6 months.”
