Summary

Table of Contents

Jewelry belongs to the luxury goods, and the industry development is mainly affected by per capita income growth. In 2014, the global jewelry sales reported USD157 billion, of which, China (Mainland and Hong Kong) contributed retail sales of USD80.7 billion (according to the exchange rate of 1:6.3997), sweeping a global share of 51.4%.

Gold jewelry accounts for the largest amount of jewelry consumption in Mainland China, more than 50%. In 2013, the slump in gold price provoked consumers' lust for purchase, which made the gold jewelry consumption jump by 42.5% that very year, to 716.5 tons. In 2014, as gold prices were moderating, the gold rush retreated, resulting in a year-on-year decline of 6.9% in gold jewelry consumption, to 667.1 tons.

Jewelry gets distributed mainly via stores and the Internet. In recent years, along with the development of the Internet, the Chinese jewelry enterprises have entered the era of internet marketing. The proportion of E-commerce sales has increased from less than 0.5% in 2009 to 4.0% in 2014. O2O mode is the current focus: offline jewelry giants develop online marketing channels, while online Internet jewelry brands gradually turn their attention to offline marketing channels.

At present, the jewelry market in China is dominated by Chow Tai Fook, Chow Sang Sang, Lao Feng Xiang, Lukfook, etc. In 2014, Chow Tai Fook secured first place with 9.5% market share, followed by Lao Feng Xiang with 5.4%. However, some Hong Kong brands give priority to Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, in contrast to a relatively market share in the Mainland, e.g. Lukfook, which in 2014 represented 3.1% market share in China yet merely 0.7% in the Mainland. In addition, in order to further improve the market share, companies are still actively expanding the marketing network.

Chow Tai Fook acquired 100% equities of Hearts On Fire (engaged in diamond jewelry) in August 2014, which made up for the disadvantages of no unique features nor high-end products in diamond accessories, but also extended the marketing network in the United States, Australia, Europe, Japan and other countries.

Lao Feng Xiang opened its first overseas store in Sydney in 2012; later in 2013, the Hong Kong branch went into operation; in 2014 and 2015, the Fifth Avenue’s flagship store in New York City and Tsim Sha Tsui store in Hong Kong were officially unveiled, respectively. Currently, Lao Feng Xiang is preparing for construction of Canadian division and Vancouver jewelry shop.

To further develop the Internet marketing channel, Ming Jewelry was stationed in Jingdong Mall in September 2014. In 2015, it will put effort into creating the newly purchased Shenzhen Zhuoyi Jewelry into an innovative brand for the young.
