Evgeny Agureev, Director of the United Sales Organization at Alrosa, commented that “in the first months of 2019, the global diamond market saw a somewhat weaker demand from cutters and polishers due to both diamond stock normalization as mid-streamers in India continue to experience difficulties with access to affordable financing, and inherent cyclicality of the market”. He added that Alrosa “maintains a moderately positive outlook for the foreseeable future, expecting the market situation to improve in the second half of the year”.
