Innovating technologies is developing industry

Economic growth and consumer demand are the major factors that stimulate the development of the domestic printing & packing industry. According to Vietnam Printing Association (VPA), Vietnamese printing & packaging market has achieved 15% to 20% of growth rate recent years. In Ho Chi Minh City, the market share of the packaging and printing sector accounts for 60% - 65% growth in total, with annual growth rates of 15%. In addition, according to Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA)’s data, food processing & packaging sector will grow by 38% from 2015 to 2020. This will increase the inevitable demand for machinery, printing and packaging materials up to 25%.

Facing with these growing figures, the largest challenge of the industry at the present is to concentrate to investment in technology, the development of new machinery and equipment to meet the quantity and the quality of customers. The increase in the number of domestic and international businesses engaged in packaging-printing market will also further increase the demand for the units to provide specialized equipment in Vietnam.
