Vietnam: Industrial production growth dips slightly in September but remains healthy

September 29, 2019

Industrial production rose 10.2% in September year-on-year, down marginally from August’s 10.5% growth. September’s figure was underpinned by strong momentum across the manufacturing, electricity and water supply sectors, while the mining and quarrying sector contracted. Manufacturing readings in particular continue to fare extremely favorably compared to regional peers.

Industrial production growth should remain buoyant going forward, spearheaded by a burgeoning manufacturing sector. Vietnam is an attractive low-cost base for manufacturing firms, including those looking to relocate from China due to the U.S.-China trade spat, thanks to a cheap workforce and business-friendly government.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast participants estimate that industrial output will grow 9.1% in 2020, which is up 0.1 percentage points from last month’s projection and 8.9% in 2021.
