In Vietnam, the Vietnam International Furniture & Home Accessories Fair – VIFA EXPO is the biggest event on the furniture for export in the country, and one of the leading in furniture fairs in the ASEAN region.
Vietnam has recently evolved as one of the “brightest star” in the wood-based furniture production and exports for the world, with furniture exports accounting for about 6% of the global market share, with large markets as: USA, Japan, China, EU, Korea and some new potential markets such as Canada, Russia, India etc. In the first 9 months of 2019, Vietnam’s export value of timber, wood products and non-timber forest products was estimated at US $7.93 billion, increased by 18% over the same period in 2018 and is striving for 2019 to reach US $11 billion, 2020 reaches US $13 billion, and 2025 reaches US $20 billion. Unfortunately the present situation forced the organisers to postpone the fair to 2022.
