There are three major sources of demand for gold: (1) jewelry fabrication; (2) industrial applications; and (3) investors (Chart 2). The largest source of demand is the jewelry industry. Gold’s workabili-ty, unique beauty and universal appeal make this rare precious metal the favorite of jewelers all over the world. In recent years, demand from the jewelry industry alone has exceeded global mine production. This shortfall has been bridged by supplies from scrap, official sector sales as well as the release of gold into the market by various par-ticipants for the purposes of gold borrowing. Besides jewelry, gold is used in a variety of industries including aerospace, medicine, elec-tronics and dentistry. The electronics industry needs gold for the manufacture of computers, telephones, televisions and other equipment. Gold’s unique properties provide superior electri-cal conducting qualities and corrosion resistance. In dentistry, gold alloys are popular because they are highly resistant to corrosion and tarnish. Finally, there are investors, hedgers and specula-tors.

Depending upon market circumstances, the investment component of demand can vary substantially

from year to year.
