RAPAPORT... Belgium’s diamond trade continued its decline in August, with rough and polished shipments slowing. Polished exports slumped 34%, reflecting lower volumes and a steep drop in the average price, according to data from the Antwerp World Diamond Centre. Imports and exports have fallen since the start of the year amid an oversupply in the midstream and weak demand from diamond manufacturers.

About the data: Belgium is usually a net exporter of polished diamonds. As such, net polished exports — representing polished exports minus polished imports — will normally be a positive number. The nation is also a net exporter of rough. While Antwerp is home to some high-value manufacturing, its main role in the market is as a facilitator of rough-diamond trading, with companies from around the world coming to the city to buy rough. The net diamond account is total rough and polished exports minus total imports. It is Belgium’s diamond trade balance, and shows the added value the nation creates by exporting rough or manufacturing it into polished.
