India is the largest consumer of gold in the world, accounting for almost a quarter of the world’s total consumption. It has, since long, maintained this position and, unlike countries like China, India uses gold primarily in the form of jewelry and investments. It is viewed as a solid instrument for investments and even traders who are into commodities trading, invest in gold bullion. These investments are usually dictated by the gold rates prevailing in the economy at that time.

Even the global view of gold is that of a safe haven where you can invest even when investments in the economy of a country are not a good idea. This is because it is believed that this commodity always appreciates.

India’s primary demand for gold is for use as jewelry. Investments are the next greatest demand driver. Unlike China, the next highest consumer of gold in the world, whose primary demand for gold is for industrial purposes, India’s industrial usage of gold is minimal.

Domestic production of gold in India is limited and, given its strong demand, India relies heavily on gold imports every year. Currently, the Kolar mines in Karnataka are the only operational mines in India, grossly unable to meet domestic demand.

Gold imports in India constitute the next largest chunk of total imports after crude oil. Of late, the government has increased its focus on curbing the negative impact of heavy gold imports viz. a widening trade deficit and rupee devaluation.

Indians primarily invest in gold as a means to counter inflation. While the price of gold may fluctuate over time, the value of this metal remains relatively stable, especially in the long-run. Returns on gold are generally higher in the long-run as compared to other asset classes. Real estate and equity markets have proven to be the exceptions but for most Indian investors, gold still forms a huge part of their investment portfolios.

Traditionally, investment in gold has been in the form of jewelry, gold bars or gold coins. As financial markets developed over the years, new investment avenues have opened up. Gold is now increasingly being invested in through Gold ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) or through mutual funds which invest in gold or through stocks of companies that are in the business of gold/gold-related activities. Gold is also traded as a commodity on commodity exchanges.

Investments in gold commodities, ETFs, funds and stocks can be done online adding another dimension to gold investments in India.
