Despite the size and population of Taiwan, the competitively of its jewellery market on the global scale is not to be overlooked.  Taiwan's sales of high-end jewelleries make it one of the most attractive markets. Consumer confidence has increased since 2012 as they are more willing to spend significant premium on quality jewelleries with more exquisite designs, while local jewellers are actively responding to such demand by searching for quality gemstones, jewellery pieces, and tools and machineries.

Taiwan's increased manufacturing of jewelleries is largely boosted by overseas demand, especially from Chinese buyers. The Mainland Visitors' Welcoming policy has drawn a rush of wealthy Chinese buyers and trading companies to Taiwan for jewellery procurement as Taiwan's jewellery is reputable for its competitive market price, fine quality, intricate craftsmanship and unique designs. While the demand for diamonds, corals and designer pieces remains strong, colored gemstones are becoming a major new trend amongst the Chinese buyers. This year, the Organiser has started its visitor promotion campaign, and is estimated to attract triple amount of Chinese jewellery retailers than last year.

It is believed that this year's trading will increase drastically at the Fair, because many local jewellery retail buyers have told The Organiser that the debut Fair last year surpassed their expectation with the impressive selection of quality products, and regret that they did not bring enough funds to purchase the quantity they desired. Now that they know what the Fair can offer, they will be much prepared this year.

Taiwan Jewellery & Gem Fair provides the ideal professional trading platform and opens the door for international jewellery players to enter the Asia market. With the VAT being as low as 5% and having zero import duty on jewelleries (with the exception of 5% for corals and watches), trading in Taiwan is advantageous to all!
