Gold Statistics

Gold Industry Statistics

Dubai’s gold trade has consistently grown each year from 2003 to 2011, with a 9 year CAGR at 28%. Despite the increase in gold price in 2010 the decline in trade volumes was marginal resulting in an increased value of trade. In 2011, the Dubai gold trade stood at USD 56 billion, a 35% increase from the previous year.
