In News by p480003

The global moissanite market has been enjoying an exponential rise since the past few years. The rising demand for moissanite-studded jewelry among customers has fueled the global moissanite market significantly.

Moissanite is a man-made gemstone with a refractive index of 2.65, which enables it to shine like a diamond. The gemstone is highly scratch-resistant with a hardness of 9.5 on Mohs scale. In addition, the durability of this stone is higher than that of a diamond and it does not show any yellowish tint after some time unlike other alternatives of diamond. Even with these qualities, moissanite costs only one-tenth of a diamond’s price, which is why the popularity of this stone is rising by leaps and bounds among customers across the world.

Increasing Inclination of Customers towards Affordable Jewelry to Boost Market Growth

The increasing disposable income of consumers around the world, together with their increasing inclination towards cost-effective luxurious jewelry, has stimulated the demand for moissanite-studded jewels in the global arena. This factor is expected to propel the worldwide moissanite market over the next few years.

Persistence Market Research (PMR) has recently published a research study on the global moissanite market, which anticipates this market to increase from a total value of US$25.5 mn in 2014 to US$49 mn by the end of 2025, rising at a CAGR of 6.20% during the period from 2015 to 2025.
