Gold demand increased by 18 percent last year compared to the previous year. 4,741 tons of gold were demanded in 2022, more than at any time since 2011. Central banks were responsible for this, among other things. They bought around twice as much gold as in 2021, a new 55-year record high. Buyers of coins and bars have also been eager to buy gold, especially in Europe and particularly in Germany. This even offset weaker demand in China. At the same time, ETF outflows have slowed. Corona restrictions in China caused a decline in jewelry demand there. There could be pent-up demand in that sector. Overall, jewelry demand posted a three percent decline last year.
On the supply side, there was a two percent year-on-year increase to 4,755 tons of gold. Gold mines produced 3,612 tons of gold. High inflation rates and the search for a safe haven spurred gold buyers. The fact that ETFs saw outflows was certainly also due to high interest rates. If the current year brings a recession and inflation goes down, then this could be rather negative for investments in coins and bars. In contrast, ETFs should benefit from a weak U.S. dollar and lower interest rate hikes. In any case, according to the World Gold Council, gold has proven its value as a long-term asset in these turbulent times. Therefore, gold stocks should not be missing in the stock portfolio, such as the shares of Victoria Gold or Trillium Gold Mines.
