Aug. 30, 2011 - PRLog -- Analysts expect China's gold production to increase by more than 10% in 2011 from the previous year, Premier-eFinance was informed. During the first six months of the year, China's gold output jumped by 5.18 tonnes, or 3.25% year on year to 164.42 tonnes, according to the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

In June alone, the country produced 32.39 tonnes of gold, according to information provided by the ministry. The combined output value of Chinese gold producers totaled $18.55 billion during the first half, up 23.37% from a year ago period.

Moreover, the gold producers' first half profits jumped 34.19% year on year. China is the globe’s largest gold producer, and has increased production every year since 2004. In 2010, output reached 340.880 tonnes, up 8.6% from 2009.
In a recent report on the Chinese gold market, available to Premier-eFinance, J P Morgan said the China Gold Association anticipates that Chinese gold investment demand will double within the next 48 months.

"Going forward, we believe the widening structural deficit in the supply and demand picture, long term demand for gold jewelry in China, India and other developing countries, persistent concerns regarding inflation, as well as the less transparent factor of sovereign purchases (that is likely to skew demand to the upside), will continue to give long term support to gold prices,'' the note said.

In 2007, China over took South Africa as the world’s largest gold producing country.
