Vietnam’s garment sector

Vietnam’s garment sector

  1. Overview

Vietnam’s garment sector for years has always been one of the major export sectors of Vietnam. With the development of innovations in technology, the workforce becomes more skilled and the high proportion of preferential policies from the government, the textile industry has achieved many encouraging results, has created commodity value, while ensuring the needs of domestic consumption and export


  1. Strengths


Vietnam’s garment sector can take advantage of a number of strengths.


First, the equipment of the apparel industry has been innovating and modernizing to 90%. The products have a better quality of day, and to be more demanding markets such as USA, EU, and Japan accepted.

Besides, the textile enterprises have built relationships inextricably linked with many importers, many large corporations in the world consumption. Themselves Vietnam businesses are also evaluated as the cost advantage of labor, skills and good sewing skills.


Finally, Vietnam was praised by political stability and social security, attractive for traders and foreign investors. Vietnam itself actively participate in regional economic integration and world expansion of market access for exports in general and garment exports in particular. Foreign direct investment in Vietnam has shown the increasing trend in the period 2000-2007, despite a sharp decline in 2008.

  1. Limit


However, Vietnam’s garment sector is still faced with many limitations and challenges.


First: Garment exports largely in the form of processing, design work, one undeveloped proportion FOB cargo by mode low, low production efficiency. Meanwhile, the textile industry and weak supporting industries, development is not commensurate with the garment industry, not enough qualified amounts of raw materials to supply export garment industry, so the added value is not high. As indicated above, calculated at constant prices, the value of textile products has been increasing more slowly than the value of garment products, showing the dependence of the garment industry to import raw materials export.

Second: Most of the textile business is small, the ability to mobilize investment capital low, limiting technological innovation and equipment. Government has made small-scale enterprises not achieve economies of scale, and can only be supplied to a certain market. Therefore, when markets are having problems, the garment enterprises will have difficulty in adjusting to market method and / or conversion to other markets. These difficulties, at least initially, in the transition oriented to the domestic market at a time of major export markets such as the US and EU are experiencing economic slowdown is the typical evidence.


Thirdly, management skills and technical production is poor, no formal training, low productivity, goods are common, yet diverse. Marketing capacities limited, most of the textile enterprises saw build his brand, not build long-term strategy for the business.


  1. OpportunitiesThe garment industry can take advantage of some opportunities to develop exports in the current period. Production of textiles is tending to shift to developing countries, including Vietnam, thereby creating more opportunities and new resources for the textile and garment enterprises of both access to capital, equipment, technology manufacturing, advanced management experience, skilled workers from developing countries.


    Besides, Vietnam’s deeper integration than on regional economies and the world economy also facilitate better market access for textiles. Vietnam is now a member of the WTO, also participated signed and executed many free trade agreements in all important bilateral level (eg commercial partnership agreements Vietnam – Japan) and multilateral methods (such as agreements within the framework of ASEAN as ACFTA, AKFTA, ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand, etc.).


    Vietnam’s commitment to reform and economic development has created very attractive for investors, and open up new markets and new partnerships. Moreover, the domestic market itself has a population of 84 million people with living standards improved increasingly attracting the attention of investors and entrepreneurs.

    However, Vietnam’s textile industry is also confronted with the challenge. On the one hand, the starting point of the textile in Vietnam is low, supporting industries have not really developed, mainly raw material imports, higher processing rate, weak competitiveness than other countries in the region and in the world … the challenges of global economic integration.


    On the other hand, the policy environment was not favorable. Themselves the legal documents of Vietnam is still in the process completed, while the capacity of the construction workers and policy implementation, as well as the staff to promote trade remains weak, particularly is limited expertise, foreign languages, and skills.Themselves major markets also employ many technical barriers, sanitary and safety, the environment, social responsibility, anti-subsidy aimed at protecting domestic producers. Vietnam still many businesses are small and medium, not enough resources to pursue the anti-dumping lawsuits, resulting in losses in the trade dispute. The trade barriers have been applying increasingly more versatile and sophisticated, especially in the context of the financial crisis and global recession.news4

Textile export market of Vietnam is growing and expanding

Textile export market of Vietnam is growing and expanding

The fact that after Vietnam joined the World Trade Organization (WTO), Vietnam textile and garment industry has many opportunities to access technology, information and services as well as better management practices and equality of tariffs between member countries. With its own advantages, such as political stability, productivity, low labor costs, to meet the diversity of the types of garments …, Textiles Vietnam is increasingly insisted on reputation world market and ranks among the top countries exporting high.


According to the latest study of the Organization for the Promotion of exports from developing countries to the EU (CBI) under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, the growth rate of textile exports in the period from 2005 to 2011 of Vietnam reached the world’s highest with 32%, while China reached 15%, India 10%, the country Turkey, Malaysia and Thailand reached 7%.

In 2012, despite the global garment industry face many difficulties, Vietnam’s garment exports continue to keep growth above 8%. Textile exports from Vietnam to the major markets remained stable growth despite the overall textile imports to these markets grew slowly or even decline. Specifically, imports of textiles to the US market fell by 0.5% in 2012 but imports from Vietnam have increased by 9.2%; textile imports to Japan increased by 8%, but imports from Vietnam increased 19.3%; even in the Korean market to imported textiles on the market decreased by 7%, the imports from Vietnam have increased by 9%. This shows that Vietnam’s garment growing prestige in the traditional market.Particularly in the May 4, 2013, textile exports of the country reached $ 5.1 billion, growth of 20.3%. Notably, exports of Vietnam’s garment strong growth in new markets, not the traditional market of Vietnam. Specifically, exports of clothing to the ASEAN markets rose 44.4% over the same period last year. Cambodia is the largest in the imports of textiles Vietnam in ASEAN, with a turnover increase of 103% over the same period of 2012. In addition, the textile exports of Vietnam in several other markets strong growth as increased 134.6% to Norway, to New Zealand increased by 120%, to Australia increased by 37% … So, do not rely on the large existing market, Vietnam’s garment continue expanding partnership into new markets and potential. Up to now, Vietnam’s garment products were present in over 180 countries and territories.

To obtain this result, besides the advantages of political stability, labor costs are still lower than in competing countries like China, Indonesia, India, Vietnam is the partner that can meet the species diversity of garments and implementation of social responsibility to employees guaranteed. This is one of the attractive elements importers because they can be found or ordered so many kinds of products. Moreover, Vietnam enterprises are to comply with the international standards set out clients as labor, manufacturing environment, social responsibility … The non-governmental organizations and large customers of textile Vietnam are rated Vietnam as an example of the textile industry healthy, coupled with labor law clear and fair wages. Program director of the Better Work project in Vietnam under the International Labour Organization (ILO) said: “Vietnam is determined to compete long term in addition to providing low cost labor services is increasing strengthen and improve the legal system. In the past decade, the working conditions in factories has improved and employees are respected. These companies are always willing to retain workers and workers’ jobs are also benefits such as professional training, housing and free meals. ”

According to information from enterprises of Vietnam Textile and Garment Group, the situation of orders from the rest of the year is quite optimistic, many businesses have stable orders every quarter III / 2013, with the customer unit signed end of year production contract. Furthermore, the FTA Vietnam – EU and is negotiating TPP, the opportunity to increase market share in the export market for textiles is the world’s largest open very wide for Vietnam textile and garment industry.


However, textile and apparel industry has always interested in improving labor productivity, accelerate design business gradually shifted manner ODM to create added value, and more emphasis on local content sources raw material, this is an effective solution to accelerate growth and sustainable development of the textile industry. Currently, Vietnam Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex) is conducting to promote investment in developing areas cotton material, produced from acacia fiber, flax to develop supporting industries producing raw materials service for textiles, in addition to the construction of industrial parks specializing in dyeing industry to focus on technology development and facilitate the handling of the waste system.


Prospects for Vietnam’s garment sector in 2015

Prospects for Vietnam’s garment sector in 2015

In 2014, exports of textile industry reached nearly $ 24.5 billion, up 19% compared with 2013, the largest increase in three years. Many experts assert, textiles will continue to thrive in the coming years, but faces many challenges. Vietnam’s garment sector is ranked No. 2 in exports to the US and Japanese markets.

Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (Vitas) said that the results achieved in the export of textile and apparel industry in 2014 reflects the efforts of the business community in the sector, but also can not help but say to favorable effects from effectively in the negotiation of free trade agreements, especially those agreements are directly related to the main markets such agreements Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the FTA with the EU, South Korea, United Customs league Russia – Belarus – Kazakhstan. Many partners have decided to take orders from countries that do not join the agreement to Vietnam. This is a favorable one and is the premise for Vietnam’s garment continue to thrive in 2015.

2015 is considered a good year for the export of textile and garment industry of Vietnam. Depth analysis of opportunities in the market shows turnover growth prospects even in the traditional markets of the sector is very large. Forecasting, textile industry could double in size in 10 years to produce, while there are advantages from free trade agreements. For example, in the EU, this time Vietnam accounts for only about 1% of the total value of imported textiles. However, the FTA Vietnam – EU was signed, the tax from 12% to 0%, would create major competitive for textiles exports to this market. Similarly, tax incentives brought by TPP also facilitate the enterprises to expand market share in the US market. Vietnam textile and garment exports to the US tax rate of approximately 17-18%, but exports have been growing at 12-13% / year, then the TPP was signed tax rate will decrease down 0%, surely generate more growth. Similarly, in the Russian market, free trade agreement Vietnam and Customs Union (Russia – Belarus – Kazakhstan) will open up significant opportunities for tax policy, customs and create great appeal now Industry.

In fact since the end of 2014, many now Vietnam has signed export orders completed until the end of Q3, even for 2015.

Expected to mid-2015, Vietnam will join the TPP. Seen from outside, Vietnam’s garment sector benefited, in particular exports to the US will be able to reach 22 billion dollars in 2020. But from the inside, Vietnam enterprises have careful look than. Such joining TPP, the garment goes to market in 12 countries in the agreement will be the rate of 0%, was supposed to be very beneficial for businesses specializing in exports. But before the request origin, localization rate of products in the garment industry to achieve 55% or more, but in Vietnam, the current ratio is only 25% less, now Vietnam will not enjoy favorable. The TPP countries also pose many technical barriers, such products are rigorously tested by an independent inspection company.

Vitas also has letter calling on businesses in the industry to actively seek potential markets outside of China to imports of raw materials. Actual market surveys Japan and South Korea’s textile industry now, then in Japan, the company producing raw materials for the garment industry is shrinking rapidly due to not compete with goods from China . Before 2000, in Japan there are about 500 textile companies, now merged, dissolved only about 50 companies, raw materials used in producing only enough water. South Korea currently has to import a raw materials from China. Thus unable to find domestic sources of raw materials, they must accept no incentives.

Not only that, a series of enterprises from countries (mostly from China) came to Vietnam investment opportunities brought by TPP. As Haputex Development Corporation Limited (Hong Kong) joint venture investment was $ 120 million venture Company Ltd. Southern Textile Limited in Pacific, 12 hectares wide, specializing in weaving, to be operational in early 2016. TAL Group (Hong Kong) invested $ 600 million in construction of the plant producing yarn, fabrics and garments in Dai An industrial zone (Hai Duong). In Nam Dinh construction license factory dyed yarns invested $ 68 million for Yulun Textile Group Jiangsu (China). Hung Yen, there Loi Tinh textile company …

Opportunities textile exports of Vietnam also forced domestic firms to compete more harsh in their home market. By choosing Vietnam as a manufacturing center of textile and garment exports are the target of many investors. In 2014, nearly 20 new FDI projects invested in textile field. Currently the total FDI invested in the textile industry over $ 2 billion. FDI sector accounted for 60% of exports.

Thus it can be said, in 2015, export growth prospects of the garment industry in Vietnam is quite bright. To be able to take advantage of opportunities from TPP textile industry need to increase the localization rate, forming a complete supply chain from design – materials – sewing – distributed, and have responsibility for building community Building competitiveness of the entire chain.news2
