Billion USD. Of which, export turnover of plastic products reached nearly $ 1.6 billion, a 17% increase compared to 2011; Export turnover of plastic materials reached 397 million, up more than 60.5% in volume and 62.6% in turnover.


According to VPA, the increase in the export turnover of plastic raw materials has shown that the development of the high-tech raw materials and production sector is higher than that of pure plastic. In particular, plastic bags are the products with the highest export turnover, reaching more than 456 million, accounting for 28.9%. This shows that in the future the world will replace plastic bags with biodegradable bags. In the immediate future, the 2013 forecasts for this product will grow further due to the high demand of markets.


According to VPA, Japan, USA, Germany are the three major markets for Vietnamese plastic products. In particular, Japan is the most import market for plastic products in Vietnam in the last five years. This is also the market that export turnover of plastic products of Vietnam has the highest growth in 2012, up 24% compared to 2011, accounting for 22.6%.
