Meanwhile, after rising 49 per cent year-on-year (YoY) in the quarter ended June 2022 to 140.3 tonnes, the demand for gold jewellery in India is likely to dip in the remaining part of the calendar year 2022, says the latest World Gold Council (WGC) report.
Uncertainty over the economic outlook, a higher import duty and the possibility of additional curbs on gold buying, even if for temporary and tactical reasons with an eye on rupee-dollar exchange rate are some of the reasons, WGC believes, that will keep jewellery demand in India in check.
The WGC also said today that a sharp fall in purchases by investors pulled global gold demand down 8% in the second quarter compared to the same period in 2021.
