This infographic, part three in our 2014 Gold Series, covers the rise of Asian demand for the yellow metal. Lifted by a continued surge in Asian gold sales, consumer demand for gold reached an all-time high in 2013 at 3,893 tonnes. Amazingly, 54% of this demand came from two places: India and China. However, it is only recently that the East has dominated global demand for the yellow metal. In this infographic, we look at India and China specifically to see why demand keeps expanding in the East. Part 4 of The 2014 Gold Series on reasons to own gold will go out at the beginning of June.
