RBI Gold Lending Norms Affecting Growth of Indian Gold Loan Market

Organized gold loan market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 25.5% during FY 2012 to FY 2015.


Noida, UP -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/04/2013 -- In India, gold loan market has been growing rapidly over the past few years with high growth of NBFC’s. However, recently the growth of the NBFC’s has been severely affected by the introduction of gold lending norms. The loan-to-value ratio cap, restriction on number of branches and other regulative measures have put negative impact on the growth of NBFC’s. This has also led to fall in shares of gold-based lenders, with Muthoot Finance Ltd falling 6.4% and Manappuram Finance Ltd down 3.7% on September 17, 2013.

Our comprehensive research report, “Gold Loan Market in India”, reveals that the organized gold loan market has grown tremendously over a period of time, owing to the changing consumer perception about gold loan and rising loan requirements. Over a period of time, the perception of consumers towards gold loan has changed drastically. In the earlier times, gold owned by Indian families was rarely liquidated unless in extreme financial need. In addition, the gold loan or loan against ornaments was taken by the local pawnbrokers and money lenders.

Due to high gold stock and high consumption of gold in Southern India, the presence of money lenders was highest in that region. Similarly, organized gold loan market originated from the South India and have largest share of almost three-fourth of the total gold loan market.
