China has been the world's largest producer and consumer of gold for many years. Because of the strong demand for gold jewelry, as well as gold bars and coins for investment purposes, China still needs to import a considerable amount of gold every year.

In 2021, China imported 804.7 tons of gold (refers to unwrought gold for non-monetary use, the same below), up 296.8% year-on-year, and the import value was US$46.3 billion, up 324.8% year-on-year. According to the publisher's analysis, in the first three quarters of 2022, China imported 890.8 tons of gold, up 71.6% year-on-year, with an import value of US$51.31 billion, up 71.7% year-on-year.

The publisher analysis shows that the average price of China's gold imports generally shows a gradual increase in 2018-2022. In 2018-2019, the average price of China's gold imports remains in the price range of US$40-45 per gram. In 2020, the average price of China's gold imports rises to US$53.8 per gram, up 21.7% year-on-year. In the first three quarters of 2021-2022, the average price of China's gold imports stabilizes at a price range of US$57.6 per gram.

In 2021, China imported gold from a total of 25 countries and regions. According to the publisher's analysis, China's main sources of gold imports by volume are Switzerland, Australia, South Africa, Hong Kong, China and Singapore. Among them, Switzerland is China's largest source of gold imports. 374.3 tons of gold will be imported from Switzerland in 2021, accounting for 46.5% of the total import volume and US$21.50 billion, accounting for 46.4% of the total import value.

As Chinese residents prefer to buy gold jewelry, while some of them collect gold bars and coins as a means of preserving value. However, there is limited room for growth in China's domestic gold production, so The publisher expects that China will still import a large amount of gold every year from 2023-2032.
