Mumbai: In the fiscal year 2023-24, India’s gems and jewellery exports witnessed a decrease of 12.17%, totalling Rs 2,65,187.95 crore (USD 32,022.08 million), as reported by the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC). This decline from the previous year’s exports, which stood at Rs 3,01,925.97 crore (USD 37,646.17 million), has been attributed to several economic challenges, including heightened interest rates in the United States and a gradual recovery in China. 

“The last financial year was very challenging for all product categories. This was mainly due to a slowdown in the US, India’s biggest export market in the segment, due to high interest rates. Also, slow recovery in China post-Covid-19”, Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC told PTI.
