Crown jewel: External competition has constrained industry revenue growth despite strong demand conditions

The Jewellery and Watch Wholesaling industry in Canada has experienced moderate volatility over the five years to 2019. To some extent, industry revenue is linked to commodity prices, with the most valuable being gold, platinum and silver. Gold prices have weakly risen, while platinum and silver prices have fallen considerably, which has constrained potential revenue growth. Industry performance has been constrained overall, however, by rising competition alongside commodity price declines. While the price of gold fell sharply during the first half of the reporting period, it has since increased. Revenue for the Jewellery and Watch Wholesaling industry is forecast to grow more slowly over the five years to more.
