The gems and jewellery sector plays a significant role in Indian economy. It is one of the fastest growing sectors. The government has recently undertaken various measures to promote investments and to upgrade technology and skills to promote ‘Brand India’ in the international market.
India’s gems and jewellery exports jumped by 8.95 per cent for financial year 2016-17 on recovery in demand from the United States (US), Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the three destinations accounting for over 75 per cent of India’s overall shipment of precious ornaments by value.
India is the world’s largest cutting and polishing centre for diamonds, with the cutting and polishing industry being well supported by government policies. Moreover, India exports 95 per cent of the world’s diamonds, as per statistics from the Gems and Jewellery Export promotion Council (GJEPC). India’s gems and jewellery sector has been contributing in a big way to the country’s foreign exchange earnings (FEEs).
The Government of India has viewed the sector as a thrust area for export promotion. The improvement in availability along with the reintroduction of low cost gold metal loans and likely stabilisation of gold prices at lower levels is expected to drive volume growth for jewellers over short to medium term. The demand for jewellery is expected to be significantly supported by the recent positive developments in the industry which would benefit Sagar Daimonds substantially.
