Demand for gold in the world grew in the first quarter by 7%

In the first quarter of this year, the demand for gold in the world compared to the same period last year showed an increase of 7%, amounting to 1,053.3 tons. As reported by the World Gold Council, the quarterly growth rate was recorded due to the increase in central metal purchases of this precious metal, as well as due to the inflow of funds into gold exchange-backed ETF funds secured by gold. The quarterly increase in purchases of central banks by 68% in annual terms was a record since 2013. At the end of March, the total volume of gold acquired by central banks amounted to 145.5 tons.
