The World Gold Council has published a report: Gold Demand Trends - Full Year 2014, which examines all the latest developments of gold demand and supply during 2014 by sector and by region. Supply remained static in 2014 at 4,278t; record mine production counterbalanced by fall in recycling.
Total gold supply was little changed in 2014; however this masked disparities in the underlying components. Recycled gold fell to a seven-year low, while annual mine production grew for the sixth straight year, up 2% to a record of 3,114t. This left full year supply virtually unchanged at 4,278t.
