Vietnam’s apparel Industry has become more attractive each year and the treaties have made the country even more interesting . CPTPP is already enforced and EVFTA with Europe is expected soon. In 2018, Vietnam exported approximately USD 36 billion of textile and apparel products. This is 16% more than what they had exported in 2017 and the growth will definitely continue in 2019.
USA is still one of the biggest markets for Vietnamese Apparel Industry. And with the on-going US-China trade/tariff war, Vietnam is going to emerge as one of the biggest beneficiaries. The jeans shipment to the USA in 2018 showed an increase of 43% from 2017 and the total denim exports were estimated at USD 296 million.
According to VITAS, USA holds 53% of the total exports of apparel from Vietnam and Japan holds 20%. Korea and Taiwan are the biggest investors in this country in the Textile and Apparel sector and out of 2100 projects, approximately 1520 projects are for garment factories only.
All these encouraging figures make Vietnam very special for Denim sourcing. Therefore the 4th edition of Denimsandjeans Vietnam is going to be the perfect event to meet all the key players from the Vietnamese Denim Industry and other suppliers to Vietnamese Denim Companies.
