HCM CITY — Việt Nam’s paint and printing ink industry is expected to grow at 6-8 per cent in 2016-20, according to the industry business association.
Speaking to the media in HCM City yesterday to introduce three international exhibitions -- Paper Vietnam; Rubber & Tyre Vietnam; and Coatings Expo Vietnam -- Nguyễn Thị Lạc Huyền, chairwoman of the Việt Nam Paint and Printing Ink Association, said the industry enjoyed 10.8 per cent growth last year.
“Many local firms have invested in building new factories in industrial parks.
“In addition, many foreign investors have shifted their paint and printing ink production facilities from Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia to Việt Nam.”
There are many positive factors to boost the development of the paint and printing ink industry, which is a supporting industry for many other industries, she said.
The development of the construction and property sectors and an increase in infrastructure works would increase demand for paint, she added.
As for the printing ink sector, there are many consumer products and their need to improve packaging would boost the sector.
The paint and printing ink industry, whose output topped US$1.6 billion last year, is expected to grow robustly.
The industry is still young in Việt Nam, and thus enterprises in the industry need an opportunity to promote their products, she said.
The 2017 Coatings Expo Vietnam provides opportunity for the firms to learn about the latest trends and demand in the market and enhance co-operation with local and foreign counterparts.
