The gems and jewelry market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period, 2022-2027.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a disruption in the supply chain across countries, significantly impacting the trade of gems and jewelry. Moreover, the spending on watches and jewelry, apparel, accessories, and cosmetics witnessed a decline during the initial stage, as consumers started stocking up essentials and staple food items globally. For instance, a prominent player like Pandora closed nearly a third of its stores in China during the pandemic as its business in China was ground to a halt. The company makes about 10% of its annual sales from Hong Kong, China, and its tourists. However, the market is anticipated to be normal once the restrictions are completed lifted.

The increase in cross-cultural designs is one of the latest trends gaining popularity in the gems and jewelry market. The demand for jewelry inspired by Italian, European, and Egyptian cultures is expected to drive the market studied over the forecast period.

The rise in urbanization has resulted in changing consumer behavior related to accessories, switching from wearing more pieces of jewelry to keeping it minimal and sophisticated while maintaining the style statement. Such evolving factors have led to a substantial demand for single-stoned stud earrings, pendants, and rings.

Key Market Trends

High Demand for Diamonds Owing to the Emerging Middle Class

The rising middle-income consumers in the developing country, coupled with the increased purchasing power and the rising fashion trends, are boosting the demand for fine costume jewelry across the region. Similar to the gold industry, the diamond industry has high expectations for the demand for diamond, primarily due to the huge emerging middle class in Latin American countries. Sales have indeed increased dramatically in these regions. In March 2021, exports of gems & jewellery stood at USD 3.42 billion. In Final Year 2021 (until October), India exported gems & jewellery worth USD 23.65 billion compared with the USD 11.482 billion recorded in final year 2021 (until October).

Asia-Pacific is the Largest Market

In Asia-Pacific, the gems and jewelry market is witnessing changes in consumer preferences due to the adoption of the Western lifestyle. Consumers are demanding new designs and varieties in jewelry, and branded jewelers are able to fulfill their changing demands better than the local unorganized players. Moreover, an increase in per capita income has led to an increase in sales of jewelry in countries like India where jewelry is considered a status symbol. Luxury jewelry, especially gold jewelry, is witnessing an increase in demand in the country. The strong performance of the real jewelry segment is expected to drive the Asian jewelry market. Manufacturers of gems and jewelry in the region are more focused on developing new and innovative design to fulfill the changing needs and demands of consumers by using advanced technologies, such as computer-aided design (CAD) and rapid prototyping (RP), that play a vital role in incorporating 3D printing in jewelry.
