Taiwan Jewellery Market
According to Euromonitor International, the leading market research company, Taiwan jewellery sales reached US $3.5 billion (NTD 105.5 billion) in 2012 with a 7% growth from 2011. Unit price has also increased in 2012 as consumers have greater willingness to spend on high-priced jewellery for better quality and more exquisite designs. The sales trend is seeing a forecast with steady sales growth for the next five years.
Importing jewelleries to Taiwan is duty free for most jewelleries such as diamonds, precious stones, and semi-precious stones with a low VAT of 5%.
This year, the international theme will continue throughout the exhibition with group pavilions representing Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, and USA. The organizer has also dedicated a tools and machinery pavilion to fulfill the increasing demand in Taiwan. In addition, the newly introduced "Splendid Square" will be one of the spotlights in the fair; the area will glow with magnificent design showcasing the most unique and precious jewellery and gems from renowned exhibitors around the world.
Not only will Taiwan Jewellery & Gem Fair gather top notch exhibitors from around the world, the Fair will also be holding various activities onsite such as seminars, jewellery fashion shows, jewellery-making demonstrations, and international jewellery design competitions.
