The Jewelry Manufacturing industry has experienced tough conditions during the past five years. Since jewelry purchases are highly discretionary, declines in consumer sentiment and disposable income led to a steep decline in downstream demand for industry goods. Nevertheless, revenue growth is expected to pick up over the next five years. Domestic demand is expected to increase, benefiting the industry. However, much of this demand will be satisfied by imports. Still, exchange rate appreciation will benefit domestic manufacturers by making the imports of unprocessed and semiprocessed precious metals and minerals cheaper, which is also likely to reduce costs for domestic manufacturers.
Operators in this industry manufacture jewelry or silverware using precious or semi-precious metals and stones. Costume jewelry manufacturers, specialty coin producers and lapidaries (artisans that form stones, minerals and other durable materials into decorative items such as cameos and engraved gems) are also included in this industry.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
