Kalyan Jeweller is one of India’s largest jewellery companies with a pan-India presence. The hyperlocal strategy enables the company to cater to a wide range of geographies and customer segments.

In Fiscal 2020, 78.19% of its revenue was from India and 21.81% was from the Middle East. Over the same period, 74.77% of its revenue from operations was from the sale of gold jewellery, 23.36% was from the sale of studded jewellery (which includes diamonds and precious stones), and 1.87% was from the sale of other jewellery.

In fact, in Fiscal 2019, the revenue earned fell by over 9%. This was attributed due to an experimental strategy that the company adopted in that year. The questionable strategy was withdrawn after that year, and the revenue again increased by 3.58%. As the revenue from operations declined in FY 2019, this is also reflected by the net profit earned by the profit.

Another factor that can contribute to the dismal performance in FY 2019 is the severe floods that hit the southern part of India during this time. Owing to this, the demand for gold jewellery was affected.

The total assets owned by the company has shown a CAGR of 5.02% between 2017 and 2020. One positive fact to note here is that the long-term debt of Kalyan Jewellers has shown a consistent decline over the years.

As for India, expenditure on jewellery is one of the top constituents of retail consumption. In 2020, the amount spent on jewellery amounted to Rs. 449 thousand crores. This is expected to grow to Rs. 633 thousand crores by 2025 which will surely benefit the company in the long run.
