BIFA Wood Vietnam 2021

BIFA Wood Vietnam 2021 is jointly organised by two of the most influential brands in Southeast Asia’s timber and woodworking sector: Binh Duong Furniture Association (BIFA) and Panels & Furniture Group of wood magazines

BIFA represents the wood processing industry in Binh Duong province. It supports members with market development, products, raw materials and technology. It also works with the government to influence policies favourable for business. BIFA also works closely with the Vietnam Timber and Forest Association (VIFORES), Handicraft and Wood Industry Association of Ho Chi Minh City (HAWA), Handicraft and Wood Industry Association of Dong Nai Province (DOWOOHA), Binh Dinh Timber and Forest Association – FPD Binh Dinh. This ensures BIFA is connected with the wood processing industry across the entire country.

For nearly two decades, Panels & Furniture Group of wood magazines has been delivering timely, thought-provoking insights to its global readership. Five titles under the Group’s umbrella encompass Panels & Furniture Asia, Panels & Furniture China, Wood in Architecture, American Hardwood Southeast Asia and American Hardwood China. The Group is also the organiser of Sylva Wood in Shanghai and Malaysian Wood Expo in Malaysia.

Vietnam is increasingly recognised as the country to be for wood processing. The country’s wood and wood products exports hit a record high of US$9.3 billion in 2018, and the industry is one of the largest export industries for the country. The potential of the industry has government introducing the Decision No: 1288/QD-TTg, approving a project on sustainable forest management and forest certification by establishing the national forest certification system, so as to ensure sustainable growth and conservation.

The country’s phenomenal growth in the last decade has made it a serious contender to overtake China as the world’s manufacturing powerhouse.

Binh Duong is the centre of the wood industry in Vietnam. It has a plentiful labour force, a dynamic team of businessmen, connected to key timber areas in the Southeast and the Central Highlands of Vietnam. It has favourable business and investment environment. The wood industry also had the highest surplus export value in the Bing Duong province. In early 2019, the province’s wood exports was 10 per cent higher than the same period in 2018.

And so at BIFA WOOD VIETNAM 2021, we are set to unlock endless possibilities for your business in Vietnam and the region.

4 reasons to exhibit at Hanoi Wood 2021

1.     Hanoi is the fifth largest wood product exporter in Vietnam and the largest in North Vietnam

Hanoi is the fifth largest wood products exporting province in Vietnam, with wood product export value of US$400 million in 2018; Binh Duong is the largest wood products exporting province with US$3.7 billion, followed by Dong Nai, Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Dinh.   

Hanoi’s wood industry is welcoming more local small and medium enterprises(SME) and foreign direct investments(FDI) that have built their new facilities in Hanoi. A growing number of these factories are manufacturing more export-oriented wood products and specialise in only one type of wood-based products such as plywood, medium-density fibreboards and block boards.

2.     Incentives to woo overseas and local woodworking companies to Hanoi

The government is offering incentives such as tax exemptions and lower land rental charges to encourage overseas companies to expand and set up new factories in Northern Vietnam.

Swedish furniture giant IKEA announced earlier this year that it will be investing US$450 million to build a retail centre network and warehouse in Hanoi.

3.     Abundant skilled labour and raw materials

Raw materials are more accessible – there are 3 million hectares of Acacia plantations and 1 million hectares of Rubber wood plantations, mostly located in Central and North Vietnam.

Compared to the South, manpower is more easily available in North Vietnam. Infrastructure such as roads and transportation are well-developed and in place.

4.     A rapidly growing domestic market

Vietnam’s domestic market should not be ignored. This year, the Vietnamese population is expected to spend US$2 billion on locally produced wood products, equivalent of one-fifth of Vietnam’s wood products export value of US$10.5 billion.

Vietnam has a young population. 70 per cent of its 97 million people are under 35 years old; 13 per cent belongs to an emerging middle class that is expected to increase to 26 per cent by 2026.
