De Beers’ Forevermark wants to boost business in India

26 september 2012

De Beers’ retail brand, Forevermark said it is planning to increase its business, in India next year.
Company marketing director Dominic Brand was quoted by Hindu Business as saying that India contributed about 10 per cent to their overall business.
He said Forevermark would lift this to 20 percent within a year by strengthening its distribution network in the country.
“We are planning to further penetrate in the country through a strong distribution network. For this, we are planning to enter into tie-ups with organisations supplying high quality cut and polished diamonds,” he said.
Brand said demand for diamonds in India was over 20 per cent.
Forevermark - which entered Indian markets last year - was already present in 15 cities.
De Beers’ Forevermark currently represents 7 per cent of the global consumer demand for diamonds and was expected to grow to 11 per cent in 2016.
