Vietnam Plastics Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)

The Vietnam plastics market is projected to register a CAGR of over 3% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

Owing to the COVID-19 impact in the first half of 2020, various production facilities and manufacturing activities have been halted in the industries such as automotive and transportation, building and construction, and electronics industries. This, in turn, has negatively affected the consumption of plastics in these end-user industries in Vietnam.

- In the short term, growing demand from the end-user industries such as packaging, electrical & electronics, as well as the construction industry is expected to drive the market growth.
- Over-reliance on imports of raw materials and finished plastics is expected to hinder the growth of the market.
- Increase in foreign investments are expected to offer various opportunities for the growth of market.

Key Market Trends

Injection Molding Technology to Dominate the Market

- Injection molding is mostly done using virgin or high-quality processing resins. High-performance plastic pallets are usually injection molded. Injection molding is a relatively capital-consuming process but offers the advantage of high-speed processes.
- Therefore, injection molding is found to be beneficial in the bulk production of plastic pallets. Injection molding processes are used in wire spools, packaging, bottle caps, automotive dashboards, pocket combs, etc.
- The explosive growth of local automotive, packaging, and chemical processing industries in the country, is expected to provide a favorable market for injection molding. For instance, automobile production in the country has witnessed a 5.5% growth, however, slowed down in 2020 due to the COVID-19 impact.
- Owing to the advantageous geographical location of Vietnam, with easy access to the rapidly growing Asia-Pacific end users, the consumption of injection-molded plastic pallets is expected to increase drastically.
- However, Vietnam is also becoming increasingly competitive in the field of injection molding. Many Japanese companies has moved their production of automotive plastic parts from China to Vietnam where technologies such as injection molding is used at the highest level.
- Owing to the increasing demand from various end-user industries, the market for injection molding is projected to increase over the forecast period.

Growing Demand from Packaging Industry

- Packaging accounts for the largest application segment in the Vietnam plastics market. The prime reasons for the growing application of engineering plastics, in the packaging segment, are better wear and chemical resistance, ease of molding, recyclability, puncture resistance, and high mechanical strength.
- Some of the major applications of engineering plastics, in the packaging segment, are as follows: packaging of bottled water, flexible packaging, such as sausage skin, flexible foils, such as shopping bag.
- Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is one of the plastics majorly used 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, which makes it suitable for packaging purposes. In addition, low handling hazards, low toxicity, and absence of bisphenol A (BPA) and heavy metals are some of the other factors that allow PET to be used for food packaging.
- PETs are used for making clamshells, bakery and take-out containers, microwaveable food trays, carbonated soft drink bottles, and other packages. Other applications include packaging materials for cooking oils, shampoo, hand wash, and more products.
- Polyamide is another major engineering plastic that finds major application in the packaging sector. Bi-axially oriented and non-oriented polyamide films are used in medical and food packaging, owing to the former’s high impact strength and good heat resistance.
- Increasing household and commercial applications for containers, plastic bags, canisters, and tableware, among others, are expected to drive the consumption demand for plastics in the packaging sector, during the forecast period.
- The usage of plastics for packaging products is expected to experience a fairly steady demand, during the forecast period. Requirements for rubber gloves in the healthcare sector, stretch films, garbage bags, and other medical devices, are anticipated to witness greater demand, in the coming years.
