Diamonds to snap back, says Standard Bank

25 february 2016
The diamond industry’s ability to adapt to demand means it will be one of the first commodity markets to recover, according to Tim Clark, head of metals and mining research at Standard Bank.
Clark said: “We look at the US selling season with some interest and we hope that sales are strong and that if sales are reasonable then in the second quarter of 2016 there will be a recovery in diamond markets.”
Without a strong sales season to clean out the pipeline, he says there is alternative action that could be taken by the majors.
“If we don’t have a strong selling season, we predict that Alrosa and De Beers will be cutting production volumes probably 30% through next year and then we will see a recovery late in 2016 or early 2017 as those pipeline stocks deplete,” Сlark was quoted by miningnews.net.
