LONDON, November 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Global gold consumption for 2010 will be higher than 2009 as a result of increasing levels of demand in India and China, sustained global demand for gold investment, together with growth in jewellery and industrial demand, the World Gold Council ("WGC") said. According to the WGC's Gold Demand Trends report for Q3 2010, published today, demand for gold in the final quarter of 2010 will be driven by the following factors: - Increasing demand by the world's two largest markets, India and China, as rising income levels, high savings rates and strong economic growth continue to push up consumption. - Gold jewellery demand is likely to exceed that of 2009 due to an anticipated recovery in India, the most significant gold jewellery market, and continuing strength in China.
