Bangalore, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/06/2016 -- The Gold loans in India have been in existence since centuries, in the form of unorganized institutions such as money lenders and pawn shops, delivering immediate and easy access to loans against gold jewellery, gold coins or gold bars as security. The practice of pawning, redeeming and re-pawning of gold is very prevalent from ages ago. Until a couple of decades ago, the whole market was covered by unorganized private players who would give loan against gold at usurious interest rates. The unorganized players still command almost two-third of the market.

However the entry of formal and organized financial institutions and banks in the gold loan sector has changed the market dynamics completely. Financial institutions have introduced innovative lending against gold services at cheaper costs and provide better customer service. They now command 25% of the gold loan market. The organized gold loan market has witnessed high growth rates in the past decade reaching almost 60% CAGR growth rate at some point of time. The gold loan market has emerged as one of the most reliable and convenient source of credit for low-income individuals and households, compared to other sources of credit available such as loans from Microfinance Institutions, personal loans, loans form self-help groups or community borrowing. Gold loans are available with minimal procedural and documentation requirements. They can be used for various purposes unlike MFI or personal loans thus providing flexibility to gold loans.

Ambarish Kumar Verma, Managing Director of NOVONOUS Business Consulting Private Limited said "Organized segment is fast catching up. It grew around 60% in FY 2011-12 and then 45% in FY 2012-13 but the growth reduced in year FY 2013-14 due to decline in the international gold prices. The market is expected to grow at a rate of CAGR 15% YoY during next 5 years".

The Gold Loan Market in India is the biggest market in the world probably due to large demand of gold by the Indians. Every year India imports around 900 tonnes of gold for consumption and it has the largest gold stock of 22000 tonnes which is privately held by domestic households and temples. The low income groups in India are the major customers of gold loan. Century's old practice of lending money against security of gold has been continuing in India in an unorganized manner. Farmers, peasants buy gold during the months of prosperity and stock it in the form of jewelleries and ornaments and then pledge it to the local money lender or pawn brokers during tough times to meet their financial requirements. This peculiar phenomenon in India has given rise to the gold loan market.
