10th October 2022, Mumbai: For the cumulative period of April – September 2022, the overall gross exports of gem & jewellery witnessed a growth of 12.82% to Rs. 161545.06 crores (6.31% in dollar terms to US$ 20580.11 million) as compared to Rs. 143187.15 crores (US$ 19359.01 million) for the same period last year.

Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC said, “With a robust growth of gem & jewellery exports in September, the last quarter of the year is expected to be more fulfilling as sales will be driven by Holiday season and festivities. However, cut & polished diamond exports continue to remain flat, witnessing decline of 1.27% (in dollar) to US$ 12215.46 million for the period April to September 2022 as compared to the same period last year. On the other hand, Plain gold jewellery has continued to gain traction with average growth of 19.43% (in dollar) post the India-UAE CEPA. However, there are a few bottlenecks which if resolved would further boost the gem & jewellery trade between India and UAE. Lab-grown diamond exports continue to have a positive run, focused measures will further strengthen LGD exports from India.”

“The global consumer sentiments across key markets of USA, ME and HK have continued to be favorable for the sector. Thailand, Switzerland, Singapore have emerged as new growth markets. The sector has achieved 45% of its annual export target of USD 45.7 billion for the year 2022-23 and I am confident that if the current momentum continues in the 2nd half of the financial year, the sector is certain to achieve its set target.”
