Gold Demand Trends Q2 2011

Second quarter global gold demand was
919.8 tonnes, worth US$44.5bn – the
second highest quarterly value on record.
Year-on-year growth was broad-based
across sectors and geographies. India
and China were the major contributors to
growth in both jewellery and investment
demand. We view the prospects for both
markets for the remainder of the year
as optimistic.
