Opportunities for big businesses

Vietnam has about 3,300 plastic enterprises in operation, with a turnover of about 15 billion USD. According to the Vietnam Plastic Association (VPA), since June, Vietnam's exports of plastic products to the European market (EU) have recovered and increased again in some key and traditional markets such as Poland, Poland, Spain, Denmark andItaly. Besides, the tax incentives from the Vietnam - EU Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) are expected by businesses to bring more growth prospects for plastic export activities.

The year 2020 is a difficult year; however, the plastic industry enterprises receive a favourable factor when the price of raw materials falls. Plastic resins are petroleum products, so there is a high correlation with crude oil prices, so oil prices in 2020, especially April, helping plastic producers benefit. However, the joy is not long before plastic material prices are recovering. According to a report by Bao Viet Securities Company (BVSC), PVC resin price recovered from a record low of 630 USD/tonne in April to 790 USD/tonne and went sideways in August. This material has increased to the price range 840-850 USD/tonne, equivalent to the average level in 2019.

Therefore, according to the leader of Binh Minh Plastics, in the fourth quarter, the price of raw materials can rise again when it increased by 30% compared to the bottom of 2020. This makes the profits of plastic enterprises possible may be affected at the last quarter of the year. In addition, most businesses have ended investment activities in 2019, with capacity exceeding 1.8-2 times the demand of the whole market, so there will be no move to invest more. So this will be an opportunity for large firms with good brands and strong financial potential.
