Gold market report transcript
Gold Global Market Outlook
China contribute to about 11 percent of the gold globally followed by Russia and Australia who supplies 9.9 percent and 9.8 percent respectively. China has been the largest gold producing country for many years, however the production volumes have decline steadily over the past few years
In 2020 gold accounted for about 52 percent of the total global exploration budget. The spike in gold prices for several months in 2020 drove the financing for projects
Impact of COVID-19 on Gold Industry
The global gold supply market was affected due to the pandemic in 2020. The gold supply from mines dropped by 5 percent. Demand for gold as an investment was high during 2020 which led to the price increase in global market, however the demand for gold as jewellery items reduced in 2020.
Although China has been a dominant player in the gold mining industry, volume of gold mined from the country has been decreasing over the last few years due to tighter environmental and mining regulations. In terms of volume mined Russia and Australia are closed behind China. Moreover Russia is expected to surpass China as the largest gold producer by 2029. Escalating tensions and trade sanctions with US have incentivized the Russian central bank to increase its gold reserve.
The demand for gold will be moderate-high in 2021, as the demand from end user segment like investment and jewelry is expected to increase commodities. The cost of labor is expected to increase in the short-term. Labor shortage and unemployment benefit claims suggest firms’ need to raise wages & salaries which is expected to result in higher wage growth in the medium term supporting demand growth prospect.
Global Gold Market: Drivers and Constraints
Economic recovery in developed as well as emerging markets could support gold consumption in the form of investments
Investors could see the low interest rates on gold as an opportunity to add risk assets like gold onto their portfolio
Improved mine production:
- Gold mining companies have set well defined protocols and guidelines which would lead to reduce the risk of mine closures if subsequent waves of COVID-19 infections impact the producing countries
Rise in operating and capital costs:
The increase in the prices of commodities like steel ,oil and its derivative products have led to an increase in the operating costs. The operating expenditure could increase by 3-5 percent for the reset of the year due to increase in input materials like steel and grinding media
Tighter environment policies and regulations could result in lower volumes from small scale mining companies. For example regulations towards the use of cyanide for gold extraction in China resulted in a drop in volumes of gold mined in the country
Illegal mining remains one of the main threats to gold market. Globally government has committed to reduce illegally sourced material by introducing a raw material tracing system and granting great powers to raid and prosecute illegal miners, separators, and distributors
