In terms of US dollars, the overall gem & jewellery exports accounted for US$ 37468.66 million as compared US$ 39331.71 million for the same period last year.


Congratulating the Government of India for achieving $770 billion in exports during 2022-23, Vipul Shah, Chairman of GJEPC, analyzed the performance of the gem & jewellery industry and said, “India's gem and jewellery industry has shown remarkable resilience and perseverance in the face of global challenges. Despite inflation in the USA, the Russia-Ukraine war, and the lockdown in China for almost 6 months, a key market, the industry has managed to put up a commendable performance. The overall gems & jewellery exports grew 2.48% to Rs. 300462.52 crores as compared to last year. Timely implementation of the India-UAE Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) by the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, has resulted in a remarkable 17% growth in exports of plain gold jewellery in 2022-23. India’s major export markets remained USA, Hong Kong and UAE.”


For the period of April 2022 – March 2023:

For the period of April 2022 – March 2023, the overall gross exports of Cut & Polished diamonds at Rs. 176696.95 crores (US$ 22044.58 million) declined 2.97% (declined 9.78% in terms of US dollar) compared to the same period in the previous year which was Rs. 182111.14 crores (US$ 24433.75 million).


Talking about the decline in cut & polished exports, Vipul commented, “Global challenges affected the demand for diamonds in India’s key markets, including USA and China. But certain regions in Europe and South-East Asia fared well. India encountered difficulties due to inconsistent Russian rough diamond supply and challenges with beneficiation, as countries such as Namibia, Botswana, and Angola prefer to have their rough diamonds cut in their own countries.”


Vipul added, “However, stability would return to the diamond sector in the coming months, especially with improved conditions in China and Far East Asia.”


For the period of April 2022 – March 2023, provisional gross export of total Gold Jewellery at Rs. 75635.72 crores (US$ 9423.31 million) grew 11.13% (3.22% in terms of US dollars) over the comparative figure of Rs. 68062.41 crores (US$ 9129.71 million) for previous year.

He also noted that the Indian government's research grant of ₹242 crore to IIT Madras, spread over five years, would support the development of local manufacturing technology in the industry.
