Gold demand set to soar

Gold demand set to soar

New Delhi - India’s gold demand is likely to surge 25 per cent in the second half of this year on improved purchasing power of farmers owing to higher minimum support price (MSP) for crops announced by the government, says a report.

India, the world's second biggest buyer of the precious metal, consumes 800-900 tonne of gold annually. Two-thirds of the country's gold demand comes from rural areas.

“Indian gold consumption was tepid in the first half of this year. ...Demand for gold is likely to surge in the second half of the year thanks to a good outlook for farmers,” says the latest Assocham-World Gold Council report.

Analysts expect 25 per cent rise in gold demand in the second half of this year as compared to the year-ago period. Higher MSP should boost the gold trade, as it would put more cash in the hands of farmers and that bodes well for gold demand, it said.

Gold is not just a luxury in India and even the poor people buy gold in the country, the report added.

Quoting an ICE 360 survey done last year, the report said one in every two households in India purchased gold within the last five years.
