WHAT IT MEANS FOR THE JEWELLERY INDUSTRY?
Opportunity Galore -
When it comes to jewellery, Mumbai can boast of the largest consumer market in the country. In fact, the city, given its entertainment and fashion hub, accounts for nearly 50 plus % of the total demand for the Rs. 7000 crore fashion jewellery market. A show like FJAS will then become a platform for many to explore new markets, forge new alliance and find better players in and around India, and the world. This, in turn, will result in a bigger market share for the fashion (imitation) jewellery, considering that India’s current share in the $16.3 billion fashion jewellery market is insignificant. FJAS will transform by giving the right platform where manufacturers, retailers, exporters, end-users and customers can synergise.
Introducing new trends -
When it comes to fashion jewellery, no two countries follow the same fashion. In India for example, the style, designs and making differs from North to South, and East to West. Likewise across continents. While Europe has a penchant of delicate jewellery with an inclination towards crystals and diamante, Russians still love their semi-precious stones on gold plated jewellery. Similarly, in China and Japan, the use of traditional motifs is higher than in Thailand. However, what binds all the countries is a similar liking for gold-like shine in their jewellery, with a better finesse and design. FJAS aims to bring all the style elements under one roof, ensuring that designers, manufacturers, traders and retailers are made aware of what is trending, not only in the Indian market but globally too.
Forging new ties -
Till date the Indian fashion jewellery market has been predominantly driven by its indigenous designs and local demand. Jewellery manufacturers and designers preferred exporting raw materials and create designs, in-house. This while took care of the home market, failed to make an impression on the global front. FJAS plans to bridge this gap by not only bringing high quality raw material suppliers and designers to India, but also showcase the different designing ‘styles’ present in the country. This would also scale-up the machinery quotient of the segment and enable them to produce world-class products.
