The Central and Southern African region is the world's largest and most concentrated source of diamonds. Rising global economic growth, coupled with increasing household wealth in the United States, China and India, is boosting the diamond mining and processing industry in the region.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (chemicals.frost.com), A Strategic Review of the Diamond Mining Industry in Central and Southern Africa, finds that the Central and Southern African countries, namely the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Angola, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa, continue to dominate the global new mine supply of rough diamonds.

"The global economy has been growing at an average rate of approximately 5 per cent over the last decade, emerging as one of the major drivers of the diamond mining industry in Central and Southern Africa," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Wonder Nyanjowa. "Increasing disposable incomes have enabled consumers to spend on diamonds and other luxury goods, further spurring market expansion."

The region hosts about 65 per cent of the world's diamond reserves and accounts for approximately 60 per cent of the global new mine supply of rough diamonds, making it the region with the greatest diamond exploration potential. It will remain a major source of global new mine supply of rough diamonds in the medium-to-long term.

However, in recent years, high-quality synthetic diamonds have entered the jewellery market, and the technology used to manufacture them is rapidly improving. The availability of synthetic diamonds at drastically lower prices is a challenge to the growth of the natural diamonds market. Additionally, the global economic downturn has dampened the demand for diamonds and other luxury goods, as disposable incomes have declined.

"The downstream diamonds and luxury goods market is intensely competitive with a wide range of brands competing for a share of the consumers' disposable income," explains Nyanjowa. "Well-established and enduring brands are likely to better withstand the competitive pressures in this market."

Despite the limited upside potential for diamond prices in the next two to three years, diamond mining companies in central and southern Africa are poised to enjoy significant growth once the effects of the global economic slowdown start receding.

"Diamond mining and processing companies in Central and Southern Africa need to position themselves during the downturn and be able to swiftly respond to changes in the global economy," concludes Nyanjowa. "Although the immediate concern for most executives in the diamond mining industry is securing the future of their companies amid the debilitating effects of the slowing global economy, it is also important that diamond mining companies be able to respond rapidly to an upturn."
