UK Jewellery Market 2016-21; Market size, market forecast and recommendations

Summary

The UK watches and jewellery market is forecast to grow by 13.1% in the five years to 2021, outpacing the 10.2% growth in the preceding five year period. However, it is worth noting that when excluding the watches category, the market is growing at a slightly slower rate. Greater fashion incorporation in design, detail and marketing of watches has made consumers want to purchase different watches for different occasions, leading the sector to be the strongest performer in the five years to 2021

Key Findings

  • Prices of key precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum will go up as investors look for safe haven investments in the midst of the turmoil following Brexit. This will lead to a negative impact on overall sector volumes, as retail prices rise.
  • Between 2008-2014 consumers turned to lower priced statement costume jewellery to update their wardrobes. Now higher value, discrete fine jewellery is regaining appeal, as specialists such as Monica Vinader and Pandora introduce modern, accessible ranges appealing to the 18-34s.
