Vietnam is considered as one of the world’s leading manufacturers and exporters in the textile and apparel industry. After Vietnam fully reopened its doors to international visitors, the local market has quickly adapted to the new normal and is back on track after the pandemic. Despite optimism for future development, Vietnam’s textile and apparel industry still faces many challenges such as rising costs, global supply chains and labour deficit, the release added.
Vietnam’s apparel exports in the first half of 2022 totalled around $22.3 billion, up 17.7 per cent year-on-year. The growth was fairly high amid challenges plaguing the global market. Though many difficulties are expected to arise in the local market for the rest of the year, Vietnam might fulfil its target to achieve $43-43.5 billion from textile and apparel exports this year.
The high export revenue, coupled with high-quality Vietnamese products at competitive prices, has recently made the Vietnam textile and garment industry more attractive to foreign investors. Market trends and the post-COVID recovery of global exporters will lead to a boom in the apparel sector in the near future.
