The gems and jewellery exports have shown signs of recovery. Exports have been registered at USD 1764.06 Million in August 2020, as compared to USD 36 Million in April 2020. The recovery is a result of growth in demand for diamonds and jewellery in international markets like US, China, Europe etc. which have opened for trade. However, as compared to the year on year comparison, gross exports at USD 1764.06 Million in August 2020 is showing decline of 41.55 per cent, as compared to gross exports of USD 3018.32 in August 2019.

Speaking about the growth in exports, Colin Shah, Chairman, The Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council said, “We are optimistic of the near and long term, as several countries are now open for trade. We have witnessed initial signs of recovery from markets like the US, China, Europe and the export orders have seen a steady rise month on month over the last 4-5 months. From USD 36 million worth of exports in April 2020, the export numbers have recorded USD 1764.06 Million in August 2020, which is a healthy recovery. All the gems and jewellery export units are working in full swing and the trade is getting back to normalcy. We are optimistic that we will be able to have a decent recovery of gems and jewellery exports from the current levels and the overall decline gap will be minimised and with the way markets are opening, the way the trade is recovering, we are hopeful that we will be able to restrict the downside of exports to just over 20-25 per cent at the closure of the fiscal year, as compared with previous year exports.”
