Jewellery and Watches Market Trends and Opportunities

AI and technology offer opportunities within production

Advancements in 3D printing and AI design elements have the opportunity to reduce product development timeframes and give suppliers greater flexibility over production. While many watchmakers maintain that luxury watches will always have a human component, future-forward technology can be introduced to help design and visualise, even if the product is then made by hand.

  • Jewellery and watches market trend: 30% of jewellery and watch buyers have purchased jewellery/watches made from sustainable materials in the last five years.

Human-made jewels

The expansion of brands offering man-made jewels and stones is a relatively new trend for the jewellery and watches market, as lab-grown diamonds become more commonplace in the industry. The main interest comes from the younger demographics, influenced by affordability and sustainability claims.

  • Jewellery and watches market opportunity: 21% of 16-34s have purchased lab-grown jewels in the last five years.
