Vietnam Plastics Market Analysis

The Vietnam Plastics Market size is expected to grow from 9,215.98 kilotons in 2022 to 15,093.27 kilotons by 2028, at a CAGR of 8.44% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

The COVID-19 pandemic affected the Vietnamese market negatively. However, with the resumption of work in major end-user industries, the market is estimated to have reached pre-pandemic levels.

  • In the short term, the increasing demand from the construction industry is expected to drive market growth.
  • Over-reliance on imports of raw materials and finished plastics is expected to hinder the growth of the market.
  • An increase in foreign investments is expected to offer various opportunities for the growth of the market.

Vietnam Plastics Industry Segmentation

Plastics are a broad category of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that contain polymers as a primary component. Plastics can be molded, extruded, or pressed into solid objects of various shapes due to their plasticity. This adaptability, along with a variety of other properties, such as being lightweight, durable, flexible, and low cost of production, led to their widespread use. The Vietnamese plastics market is segmented by type, technology, and application. By type, the market is segmented into traditional plastics, engineering plastics, and bioplastics. By technology, the market is segmented into blow molding, extrusion, injection molding, and other technologies. By application, the market is segmented into packaging, electrical and electronics, building and construction, automotive and transportation, housewares, furniture and bedding, and other applications. For each segment, the market sizing and forecasts have been done on the basis of volume (kilo tons).

Vietnam Plastics Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Vietnam Plastics Market according to our research experts:

Extrusion Technology to Dominate the Market

  • In Vietnam, extrusion molding technology is used to make products such as PVC, PE pipe, aluminum and plastic pipe, fiber, PVC doors, frames, roofings, and wall coverings. An extrusion molding process involves lower production costs and faster setup time. However, it provides mediocre precision and is mostly suitable for uniform cross-section parts and not complex parts.
  • This technology is used mainly in construction activities, and the main products include PVC, HDPE, PPR pipes, profile bars, plastic doors and windows, panels, and furniture.
  • According to the plastic industry development plan of 2020, the plastics industry will be restructured toward reducing the proportion of packaging and consumer plastics and increasing the percentage of the construction and technical plastics segment.
  • Vietnam’s construction plastics segment accounts for around one-fourth of the total plastics industry. Developing the construction and real estate sector is boosting the demand for plastic construction products.
  • In addition, the country's government aims to build a million affordable houses in more than 350 industrial zones. These infrastructural development projects and the increasing number of factories being installed are robustly increasing the demand for construction and technical plastics in the country.
  • In April 2022, one of the top PET packaging businesses in Vietnam, Ngoc Nghia Industry - Service - Trading Joint Stock Company (NN), was acquired by Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited (IVL), a global sustainable chemical company. The acquisition will strengthen IVL's market position as it broadens its integrated PET product offering to significant multinational customers throughout the country.
  • In September 2022, the US-based beverage company The Coca-Cola Company introduced fully recycled plastic bottles in Vietnam. The company claims to meet both Vietnamese regulations and international standards for food-grade rPET packaging.
  • Based on the aforementioned aspects, extrusion technology is expected to dominate the market.

Packaging Segment to Dominate the Market

  • Packaging accounts for the largest share of the Vietnamese plastics market. Factors like light weight and thermal, chemical, and corrosion resistance make plastics a viable choice for packaging purposes in the Vietnamese market.
  • In the packaging industry, plastics are used for healthcare packaging, food and beverage packaging, consumer packaged goods, consumer and personal care packaging, and in the home and garden.
  • Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is one of the majorly used plastics for packaging purposes, mostly in the food and beverage industry. Portability, design flexibility, ease of cleaning, light weight, and protection against moisture are a few properties of PET that make them suitable for packaging purposes.
  • In addition, low handling hazards, low toxicity, absence of Bisphenol A (BPA), and heavy metals favor the PET market for the food packaging industry.
  • With a growth rate of 15% to 20% in the upcoming years, the packaging industry is one of Vietnam's fastest-growing sectors. Over 900 factories are currently in operation in the sector, with approximately 70% of them located in the Southern region, primarily in Ho Chi Minh City, Binh Duong, and Dong Nai.
  • In March 2022, Tetra Pak, a well-known F&B company, with an additional USD 5.9 million investment into its USD 141.2 million packaging material factory in the province of Binh Duong, proved its confidence in Vietnam. To meet the growing demand for aseptic packages in Vietnam and other regional markets, the additional investment will increase the factory's annual output from the current 11.5 billion to 16.5 billion packages.
  • Thus, based on the aforementioned aspects, the packaging segment is expected to dominate the market.
