Following a Period of Volatility, the Global Diamond Industry Regains Its Lustre With 2 Percent Growth in 2017

24 december 2018
(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global diamond industry emerged stronger in 2017 with 2 percent growth across all segments of the value chain, following a period of high volatility.  In line with positive luxury market trends, global diamond jewelry sales grew last year, fueled by strong macroeconomic fundamentals in the U.S., resurging demand from Chinese millennials, and increasing sales in the self-purchasing category in China.  This healthy demand led to an unprecedented jump of nearly 20 percent in diamond production volume last year and supported a 2 percent increase in cutting and polishing revenue, putting the segment on positive ground.  These are the findings from the eighth annual report on the global diamond industry prepared by the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC) and Bain & Company.
