  • Slide 7 – Total gold demand tableThe demand table shown here gives a more detailed breakdown of demand into its key sectors.Jewellery: Grew 11% in Q4 largely due to to a revival in Indian demand in the second half of the year. Annual demand was 3% lower. India again the driver - a very weak first half weighed on the annual total. India's year of two halves is discussed in detail in the report. Investment: Saw declines of a similar magnitude in the Q4 and full year numbers. Bar and coin demand softened from exceptional demand seen in 2011, but still holds well above the 5-year average. Technology: A combination of high average prices, relatively weak demand from key consumer markets and de-stocking towards the end of the year contributed to a 3% decline in Technology demand.Official sector: Gold's diversification benefits drove net central bank purchases to a 48-year high of 534.6 tonnes.Gold buying is still most prevalent among the central banks of emerging markets.
  • Slide 10 – Jewellery attracts greater values Jewellery demand echoed developments in India, the largest market accounting for 29% of total demand. Price-related declines in demand volumes were seen across most markets with a handful (including Russia, Turkey and Japan) generating counter-trend growth.Demand in US dollars reached a new annual record of US$102.4bn as consumers continued to allocate ever greater sums to gold jewellery.The inference that gold jewellery is as desirable as ever is confirmed by data from some Western markets, where growth in silver consumption is being fuelled by demand for gold-plated silver pieces.
  • Slide 17 – Total gold supply tableFourth quarter supply was unchanged year-on-year as a drop in recycling (predominantly in India) counterbalanced a 2% increase in mine productionAnnual supply contracted by 1%. Recycling was again the primary reason for the decline as mine output was unchangedProducer de-hedging of 20 tonnes more than reversed the 11.3 tonnes of net hedging from 2011 but absolute volumes remain negligible
