The demand for a diamond is driven by shifting customer preferences and market dynamics, such as the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the luxury goods sector. 

Several well-known players are active in the diamond market, which is very competitive. Although, De Beers holds a monopoly in the market. Companies should be more focused on providing reassurance regarding the ethical origins, provenance, and sustainability of natural diamonds. The value and sustainability of diamonds should be promoted by emphasizing the benefits of diamond mining in local communities along with its relatively low environmental effect. However, the unfavorable economic conditions have negatively impacted the company's financial positions including an increase in financing cost, a decrease in current income from mining operations, along with limited access to the capital market.  Furthermore, the mining industry of the diamond market is extremely competitive, and the companies compete with one another based on resources and technical capacity.  

Thus, the diamond market offers business prospects for manufacturers. Companies need to be adaptable, creative, and focused on serving their consumers' demands if they want to succeed in this dynamic and often changing industry.
