India's robust gem & jewellery export performance in the first six months of the financial year 2022-23 has helped to maintain growth for the period April to October 2022, despite a sharp dip in exports in the month of October 2022. The decline in exports in the month of October or November is a seasonal trend consistent with previous years as manufacturing activities are either limited or units are closed because of the Diwali season. Traditionally, a spike in exports is seen once again post the Diwali holiday period.

For the cumulative year-to-date period of April – October 2022, the overall gross exports of gems & jewellery witnessed a growth of 7.90% to Rs188183.89 crores (1.21% in dollar terms to US$ 23814.0 million) as compared to Rs174406.57 crores (US$ 4041.60 million) for the same period last year.

In October 2022, the gem & jewellery exports witnessed a decline of 14.64% to Rs25843.84 crores (declined 22.44% in dollar terms to $ 3134.85 million) as compared to Rs30274.64 crores (US$ 4041.60 million) for the same period last year.

Mr. Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC, said, “We had witnessed the usual pre-Diwali buzz as factories in India rushed to complete export orders in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The temporary closure of G&J units, and absence of workers during Diwali usually results in a decline in exports post Diwali. The upcoming Holiday Season in the West and the Chinese New Year will give a boost to the exports in November and December. Also, trade shows like IIJS Signature 2023, Hong Kong Show 2023, and VicenzaOro Winter 2023 will aid in exports of gems and jewellery to key markets. I am confident that we are on course to achieve our export target of USD 45.7 billion for the year 2022-23.”

“The positive impact of the India-UAE CEPA was offset by gold supply hurdles which impacted exporters. The Council has sensitised the Govt. regarding this issue and they are working on resolving the same,” Mr. Shah, added.

For the period of April – October 2022, the overall gross exports of Cut & Polished diamonds grew 0.65% to Rs111400.01 crores (fell 5.54% in dollar terms to US$ 14106.67 million) as compared to Rs110675.84 crores (US$ 14933.40 million) for the same period last year.
