This comprehensive article dissects Kuaishou's data spanning from January 2021 to June 2023, shedding light on two pivotal areas: overarching industry trends and nuanced segmented trends.
The Resilience of China's Jewelry Market: A Kuaishou Perspective
Economic Resurgence and Market Growth
The Chinese gold and jewellery market has demonstrated remarkable resilience, boasting a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.17% from 2021 to 2022. The market valuation catapulted from 380.966 billion yuan to an impressive 815.898 billion yuan. With China easing its pandemic-related restrictions towards the end of 2022, the offline jewellery market has seen a robust resurgence. Forecasts indicate a 3% to 6% growth rate, aligning with the recovering economy.
