Opportunities abound for the processing and packaging industry – through ProPak Vietnam

The packaging industry in Vietnam has undergone tremendous growth and development over the past few years, with an average annual growth rate of 15 – 20 per cent year-on-year. This growth is being driven by a number of trends, such as the rising affluence and domestic demands for consumer goods, processed food, plus pharmaceutical, cosmetic and personal care products. 

According to many economic experts, in spite of environmental challenges, plastic packaging products are still in high demand and being consumed in even larger amounts, due mainly to its common level, along with its production and transportation cost advantage. It appears that packaging categories are becoming more diverse in terms of pack size and quality in order to cater to many needs of manufacturers as they seek to differentiate themselves from other players in the market. It is thus imperative for local manufacturers to look beyond the market, source and implement new technologies in order to scale up the value chain and sustain future growth.
