Product to Register

Medical Devices

The demand for medical devices in Vietnam is growing rapidly, but still, companies in Vietnam are not able to manufacture advanced medical equipment.

Food & Beverage

Thirty-five percent of Vietnamese outdoor food and beverage consumption are based on Western food, mainly because of the growing number of foreign food and beverage brands. As a result, the western food and beverage market has been growing steadily.

Health Supplements

The total number of elderly consumers in Vietnam is now 5.6 million and is still increasing, presenting a tremendous opportunity for the health supplement industry in Vietnam.


Approximately 90% of the cosmetics in Vietnam are imported, with local brands accounting for 10%. With the growth of the Vietnamese middle-income population and higher purchasing power, high-quality, well-known cosmetics are becoming more and more popular.
