Statista Dossier on the global lab-grown diamond industry

This dossier offers some of the most interesting facts relating to the worldwide lab-grown diamond industry. Lab-grown diamonds, also known as synthetic diamonds, man made diamonds, or cultured diamonds, have the same physical properties of natural diamonds because they are created in a lab using technology that replicates the natural diamond growing process. Diamonds have long been recognized for their beauty as a gemstone, but are also used for industrial and investment purposes. Lab-grown diamonds are a relatively new entry to the diamond market, but cost less than natural diamonds and don't have the social and environmental impact that (some) natural diamonds have. This document provides an overview of global key figures, the U.S. lab-grown diamond industry and retail market, and more.
