Global Synthetic Diamond Market Trends:

New product launch due to continuous innovation is a rising trend. This ongoing trend is expected to fuel market growth. For instance, in January 2020, Swarovski introduced a new range of lab-grown diamonds with diverse cuts and 16 fancy colors at the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris this week. The offering is the most extensive assortment of hues in the global market.

Growing jewelry market across developed countries due to changing fashion trend is expected to fuel global market. According to the De-Beers group, an international corporation that specializes in diamond mining, diamond exploitation, diamond retail, diamond trading, and industrial diamond manufacturing sectors, in 2020, the global diamond jewelry market was valued at approximately USD 68 billion. Nearly half of the world's demand for polished diamonds was from the United States, with 51% share of the global demand in 2020, followed by China (16%) and India (10%).

Global Synthetic Diamond Market Restraints:

Complex manufacturing process is projected to restrict the market growth of synthetic diamond. High-pressure and high-temperature (HPHT) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) are the two process that are used to produce synthetic diamond. Process requires extremely high heat (about 2,000°C) and very high pressures (over 1.5 million PSI) to simulate process to happen deep underground. Moreover, the process is very hard and costly.

Unfavorable condition arising due to negative impact of Covid-19 on the global economy is expected to hinder the market growth.

*Definition: Synthetic diamond is produced using a high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) process. The process requires carbide tools, which are essential to the manufacturing process. Cemented carbide tools were first used in commercial HPHT processes in the 1950s. They were crucial in enabling the manufacturing of artificial diamond. This type of tool combines high compressive strength with high fracture toughness and wear resistance. These tools are used in high-pressure sintering processes, and they can withstand temperatures of around 1300 deg C and 5.5-10 GPa.

Synthetic diamonds are created using a series of processes that mimic the natural diamond's composition. These methods are referred to as HPHT or High Pressure High Temperature. Natural diamonds are overwhelmingly octahedral, whereas synthetic diamonds are usually cubic. The cubic growth patterns of synthetic diamonds under ultraviolet light are indicative of their synthetic origin. Today, other properties, including electron beam fluorescence and spectroscopy, are also used to distinguish natural and synthetic diamonds.
