Gold Imports Surge in April, Reflecting Global Trends

India witnessed a significant uptick in gold imports in April, doubling to USD 3.11 billion from the previous month’s USD 1.53 billion, amidst fluctuating gold prices in Delhi.

Key Highlights:

  1. Despite a dip in March due to pre-wedding season stocking, April saw a revival in gold demand, attributed to the ongoing marriage season and central bank purchases.
  2. Increased global demand, driven by geopolitical tensions, also contributed to the surge in gold prices and imports.
  3. Experts suggest a combination of factors including geopolitical uncertainties, steady central bank acquisitions, and seasonal demand for weddings and festivals in India led to the rise.

According to Amit Goel from Pace 360, the drop in March imports due to high prices likely spurred the April rebound, coinciding with India’s traditional wedding and festival season, boosting jewellery purchases.

Manish Chowdhury from StoxBox highlighted the role of shifting global dynamics and economic uncertainties, reinforcing gold’s status as a safe-haven asset amidst concerns over inflation and potential stagflation risks.

The surge in gold imports contributed to a five-month high trade deficit of USD 19.1 billion, with total gold imports for 2023-24 reaching USD 45.54 billion, up by 30%.
