Vietnam has long been a dominant player in the global cashew nut industry.  This delicious and versatile nut continues to be a significant agricultural export for the country.  While the first quarter of 2024 brought positive signs for Vietnamese cashew nut exports, there are also challenges to consider for future growth.  Let’s delve into the recent export figures, explore the exciting potential of this industry, and examine the hurdles that need to be addressed.

Vietnamese Cashew Nut Exports in Q1: Joy and Challenges for the Industry

The Vietnamese cashew nut industry has just experienced a very successful first quarter with an export turnover of US$782 million, an increase of 20.5% compared to the same period in 2023. The export volume of cashew nuts also recorded an impressive increase of 31.8%, reaching 147,000 tons.

The US continues to be the largest export market for Vietnamese cashew nuts, accounting for 34% of total export turnover. This is followed by China (18%), the Netherlands (8%), the EU (7%), and Canada (4%).

However, besides the joy of high export turnover, the Vietnamese cashew nut industry is also facing a number of challenges. The average export price of cashew nuts in the first quarter was estimated at US$5,329/ton, a decrease of 8.6% compared to the same period in 2023.

Price fluctuations, fierce competition from other exporting countries such as India, Côte d’Ivoire, Brazil, and a shortage of raw materials due to the decrease in cashew nut planting area and low productivity are major challenges that the cashew nut industry needs to address.

To maintain its growth momentum and develop sustainably, the Vietnamese cashew nut industry needs to focus on a number of key solutions. Improving product quality to meet the increasing demands of the market is a key factor.

Diversifying export markets, reducing dependence on traditional markets, and building a brand for Vietnamese cashew nuts in the international market are also necessary solutions.

Expanding the cashew nut planting area, improving productivity and quality of cashew nuts are long-term directions to ensure the supply of raw materials for the cashew nut industry.

With the joint efforts of stakeholders, from the government, businesses to farmers, the Vietnamese cashew nut industry can overcome challenges, exploit potential and develop strongly in the future.
