A recent report from the World Gold Council (WGC) titled 'India: Heart of Gold' argues that Gold demand in India will continue to be robust in the next decade. The report estimates that cumulative annual demand will be in excess of 1,200 tonnes by 2020, registering a growth of 33 percent. Presently India accounts for 32 percent of the global jewellery and investment demand. "Demand for gold will be driven by savings and growing income levels," said Ian Tefler, chairman of WGC.

China and India jointly accounted for 51 percent of global gold demand for investment and jewelry. According to the World Gold Council, Chinese demand for gold as an investment surged 70 percent in 2010 from a year earlier, outpacing all other markets in terms of the rate of change in demand for gold bars and coins as a store of value.

The bulls who believe that gold prices will continue to surge may be inclined to look into gold miners. Investors in gold miners are banking on rising earnings, as gold prices rise, to provide value. Some miners sound confident that gold's run will continue and have started new mining ventures. However the sale of several gold sites may suggest that the industry peaked last year.
