Vietnam’s furniture industry has grown leaps and bounds in recent times, even during the last couple of quarters of the pandemic in 2020, the country clocked impressive growth numbers, a good reason for this growth is due to the fact (contentious) that a bulk of the firms have moved out of China due to on-going trade wars making business partnerships risky, expensive and unsustainable.
In light of this trend, Vietnam has turned out to be a great alternative for furniture wholesalers, suppliers, distributors, and retailers seeking furniture made at a low cost. The fact that multiple species of wood fit for furniture manufacturing grow across Vietnam, low labor costs, and the proximity to China has allowed the indigenous manufacturing industry to boom in recent years.
Vietnam is primarily known for wooden furniture, species like Acacia, which is also grown in abundance throughout South Asia & Africa is the default wood species used for making furniture throughout Vietnam. Although Acacia wood may not be the best species to consider while importing furniture, it does get the job done & it does suffice for most uses.
