✅ Although jewelry still accounts for the largest contributor of gold demand, its share has declined from over 80% at the start of the century to less than 50% currently.

✅ At the same time, investment demand for gold (as a hedge) gradually increased since the emergence of the global financial crisis and run up in gold prices.

What Lies Ahead?

✅ Considering the volatility in gold prices over the last 50 years, it is anybody’s guess how the prices could move.

✅ Though the general market consensus seems to suggest that we could see a further upswing in gold prices in the near term.

✅ The primary drivers for a bullish view include higher retail and institutional investment, increased gold buying by major central banks over the world due to a possibility of a global economic slowdown, and prospects of a truce in US-China trade tensions.
