Market Segmentation Analysis:
By Manufacturing Method: The report provides the bifurcation of the market into two segments based on manufacturing method: chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and high pressure high temperature (HPHT). Chemical vapor deposition lab grown diamond market is both the largest and fastest growing segment of global lab grown diamond market owing to low costs associated with CVD production, increasing demand for lab grown diamonds by end user industries, low space consumption of CVD machines and increased ability of CVD techniques to grow diamonds over large areas and on various substrates with fine control over chemical impurities and properties of diamond produced.
By Size: The market on the basis of size has been divided into three segments: below 2 carat, 2-4 carat, and above 4 carat. Below 2 carat lab grown diamond market is both the largest and fastest growing segment of global lab grown diamond market owing to growing popularity of below 2 carat weight diamonds in jewelry market, affordable price range of these diamonds, rising disposable income, rapidly expanding working class population and increased demand for sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to naturally mined diamond.
By Type: The report provides the bifurcation of the market into two segments based on type: polished and rough. Polished lab grown diamond market is both the largest and fastest growing segment of lab grown diamond market owing to growing application of these diamonds in jewelry, electronic & healthcare sector, rapidly expanding fashion industry, increasing technological advancements in diamond cuttings & polishing processes and high end jewelers adopting for cost efficient, better quality and customizable polished lab grown diamonds.
By Nature: On the basis of nature, the global lab grown diamond market can be divided into two segments: colored and colorless. Colored lab grown diamond market is the fastest growing segment of global lab grown diamond market owing to increasing number of companies trading in fancy colored diamonds, rapidly expanding fashion industry, rising popularity of colored diamond jewelry among millennials & gen Z, urbanization, rising demand of extravagant colored lab grown diamonds in haute couture and the prestige, royalty & status associated with owing colored diamonds.

By Region: The report provides insight into the lab grown diamond market based on the regions namely North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific lab grown diamond market in the largest & fastest growing region of global lab grown diamond market owing to rapidly growing urban population, large consumer base, increasing manufacturing activities by various end-user industries, rising internet penetration and the presence of numerous reactor plants for synthetic diamond manufacturing. Asia Pacific lab grown diamond market is divided into five regions on the basis of geographical operations, namely, China, Japan, India, South Korea and Rest of Asia Pacific, where China lab grown diamond market held the largest share in Asia Pacific lab grown diamond market owing to rapidly growing middle class, followed by India.
Growth Drivers: The global lab grown diamond market has been growing over the past few years, due to factors such as rapid urbanization, fall in prices of lab grown diamonds, increasing demand from end user industries, fast growing jewelry industry, rising demand for lab grown diamonds among millennials, etc. Positively expanding end user industries, increasing number of manufacturing activities & rapidly developing emerging economies are positively contributing towards increased demand for lab grown diamonds used for cutting, grinding, shaping, polishing, drilling and hard coatings for industrial equipment such as wire-drawing dies, quarrying saws, grinding wheels, machine tools, and mining drills etc. across a wide range of end user industries like construction, semiconductors, electronics, mining, oil and gas, precision machining, etc. So, increasing demand from various end user industries will continue to boost the growth of global lab grown diamond market.
Challenges: However, the market growth would be negatively impacted by various challenges such as complexities in manufacturing process, increased competition from naturally mined diamonds, etc. There is an increased preference for naturally mined diamonds as these diamonds are seen to be unique, rare, special and one of a kind, in comparison to lab grown diamonds that are produced in bulk and have no uniqueness or supply constraints attached to them. Also, since there is no rarity attached to them, the value of lab grown diamonds will continue to depreciate in forecasted years, negatively impacting the resale value of these diamonds and making it more costly to upgrade them in the future, impeding the growth of lab grown diamonds in the upcoming years.
Trends: The market is projected to grow at a fast pace during the forecasted period, due to various latest trends such as increasing consumer awareness, rising sustainability concerns, advancements in lab grown diamond production technologies, etc. Artificial intelligence in lab grown diamond market is associated with providing advanced analytics, pricing, grading, and sorting technologies to simplify & streamline the real-time pricing process by analyzing market data, pricing trends, and other factors needed to provide a more accurate & updated diamond pricing estimates, making the process more efficient, convenient and effective for traders, sellers and buyers.
Impact Analysis of COVID-19 and Way Forward:
COVID-19 brought in many changes in the world in terms of reduced productivity, loss of life, business closures, closing down of factories and organizations, and shift to an online mode of work. Lockdown policies, imposed by the government to prevent the spread of virus forced various end user industries to either shut down or run low on production capacity, resulting in lower production and manufacturing activities by various end user industries and since end user industries demand lab grown diamonds for various purposes like cutting, grinding, shaping, polishing, drilling and hard coatings for industrial equipment such as wire-drawing dies, quarrying saws, grinding wheels, machine tools etc., there was a sudden fall in the demand for lab grown diamonds as result of reduced production activities, having negative impact on the growth of lab grown diamond market during the period, 2019-2020.
Lab grown diamond market has been moderately fragmented due to the presence of numerous international, regional and local vendors. In order to expand their consumer base & gain larger market share, lab-grown diamond companies have been facilitated by increased market competition to innovate, focus on improvement in company’s production capacity, and establish strategic partnerships, mergers, acquisition & collaboration. The key players of the market are:
Henan Huanghe Whirlwind Co.,Ltd.
New Diamond Technology Company
Swarovski International Holding AG (Swarovski AG)
WD Lab Grown Diamonds
Applied Diamond, Inc.v De Beers Group (Element Six)
