Gold Demand Trends Q3 2014

Published 13th November 2014

Gold demand totalled 929t in the third quarter, which proved to be a generally subdued quarter for the gold market. Jewellery demand softened by 4% year-on-year, but the comparison continues to be heavily influenced by the events in 2013. Longer term analysis shows a jewellery market in good health. Investment demand posted a 6% increase, reaching 204t, although a stable price caused investors to hold back. Central Banks added a further 92.8t to their coffers. Supply was down 7% in Q3; the volume of recycled gold continuing to shrink.
