According to TechSci Research report, “Vietnam Aquaculture Market –Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2018-2028F”, the Vietnam Aquaculture Market stood at USD 102.68 Million in 2022 and is anticipated to project steady growth in the forecast period with a CAGR of 6.82% through 2028. Several factors are propelling the growth of the aquaculture market in Vietnam. Key drivers include the favorable climatic conditions for aquaculture, rising demand for seafood both locally and internationally, and government support and initiatives aimed at the sustainable development of the sector.

Furthermore, advancements in aquaculture technologies and fish farming practices have significantly boosted productivity, while the growing trend of organic aquaculture is opening new avenues for market expansion.

The Vietnam aquaculture sector represents a vital part of the country’s economy, boasting significant growth over the past few decades. This development has been fueled by the country’s favorable conditions for aquaculture, including a long coastline, vast water resources, and abundant labor supply.  As of 2020, Vietnam’s aquaculture production was estimated at over 4.5 million tons, with a value of approximately $5 billion. This strong performance indicates the vast potential of the market, with key products including shrimp, pangasius, and tilapia.

The shrimp industry, in particular, holds a dominant position in the country’s aquaculture landscape. Vietnam is currently the third-largest exporter of shrimp globally, with products being shipped to over 90 countries worldwide. The success of the shrimp industry can be attributed to advancements in farming technology, improved shrimp breeds, and an increased focus on sustainable farming practices.

The pangasius sector, on the other hand, has faced multiple challenges in recent years, including negative press related to product quality and environmental concerns. Despite these issues, the industry maintains a robust position in the market, bolstered by strong domestic consumption and export demand. The tilapia industry is still in its infancy compared to the shrimp and pangasius sectors. However, it has shown promising growth, driven by increasing domestic consumption and the potential for export to international markets.
