The packaging sector is one of the most rapidly developing industries in Vietnam, driven by increased demand for consumer goods, foodstuffs and expanding Vietnamese exports of products requiring packaging.
Vietnam presently offers a strong combination of rapid economic growth, expanding personal incomes, and an excellent demographic profile that is fueling industrial production and consumer demand. These trends have led to packaging becoming one of the most rapidly developing industries in Vietnam. According to the Vietnam Packaging Association (Vinpas), the packaging sector is growing at least 15% - 20% per year.
At present, Vietnam has more than 900 packaging manufacturers, about 70 percent of which are located in the southern part of the country. The market may be broken down into five major types: (1) plastic packaging; (2) cardboard/paper; (3) metal containers; (4) glass; and (5) others.
Food Processing & Pharmaceutical
Nearly 80 percent of the Vietnamese population is involved in agriculture, which accounts for 30 percent of the GDP and 40 percent of the nation's exports.
Although the demand for machinery and equipment in the industry is huge, the domestic machinery industry cannot satisfy the internal demand because (despite some skill in copying and reverse-engineering) it has proven poor in design and quality.Track：(Vietnam International Packaging ＆ Printing Industry Exhibition / Food Processing)
