High-lights of Market Potential:

  1. Vietnam is one of the leading exporters of garments & textiles, for which it relies heavily on import of fabrics, yarn, fibre and textile accessories. 
  2. Vietnam imports large quantities of raw materials for catering to the requirements of their flourishing garment industry, and hence, it presents an excellent opportunity for Indian exporters of fabrics, made-ups, yarn and fibre for discussing business with their target customers by participating in the event.
  3. Vietnam’s thriving Garment Sector, with an access to the EU, presents a tremendous scope for supply of raw materials including yarn and fabric to this sector. 
  4. Total global import of man-made fibre textiles by Vietnam in 2018 was USD 100.39 Million, of which USD 68 million for fabrics, USD 1.39 million for made-ups, USD 30 million for yarn and USD 1 million for fibre.
  5. Vietnam’s import of MMF Textiles from India during 2018 was only USD 137 million ---- accounting a small share of 3% in the Vietnamese market of MMF Textiles.
  6. Product Share in the export basket of Indian MMF Textiles to Vietnam include fabrics 78%, Made-ups 2%, Yarn 12% & Fibre 8%.
  7. Main countries / markets, which imported MMF Textiles from Vietnam are China, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, etc.

Vietnam is one of the “Tiger Economies” of ASEAN, and China was earlier its major Sourcing Partner.  However, currently with the withdrawal of many Chinese suppliers from the market due to high cost reasons – specially at the low to medium end of the textile value chain, Vietnam offers an excellent opportunity to exporters in India to fill the gap in the supply due to the reduced presence of the Chinese companies in the trade of textiles in Vietnam. Hence, the Event offers an excellent opportunity to fill the gap in supply being left on accounts of the withdrawal of the Chinese suppliers --- a especially at the low to medium end of the textile value chain.
