In 2021, thanks to disease control and the largest economic stimulus package ever, the US economy is clearly recovering and people's spending on food has increased. The latest statistics on June 24, 2021 recorded that the US GDP in the first quarter increased by 6.4% (compared to the pre-pandemic average of only about 3%). With this momentum, according to estimates of the US Department of Agriculture, in 2021, the value of fruit imports into the United States could reach 15.1 billion USD.

In addition, the distribution system in the United States is diversified, multi-level, multi-channel, modern, which opens up many consumption opportunities in the market. In addition, imported fruits are sold in large supermarket chains, individual food stores in commercial zones, restaurant systems, hotels and online sales channels, delivered to home. This is also an opening for Vietnamese businesses that want to enter this market, which is to access large distribution chains.


India is becoming a potential partner of Vietnamese fruit. Because nearly 60% of the people of India are vegetarians, mainly vegetables and fruits. On average, each person in India eats 3 kg of fruit in a month. In a year, the whole country of India consumes 48 million tons of fruit.

Vietnamese dragon fruit is popular in many big markets.

10 times, from 1 million USD in 2015 to 10 million USD in 2020. Vietnam's dragon fruit market share increased sharply, from 26 % to 52% over the last 5 years.


China is the largest market for Vietnamese fruit exports. Recently, good news came to Vietnam's agriculture industry when China agreed to pilot the official import of Vietnamese passion fruit and durian, thereby improving the income of hundreds of thousands of farmers. Durian products have a total annual output of about 1.3 million tons.

So far, Vietnam has had 11 kinds of fruits officially exported to this world's largest market of billions of people, including mango, dragon fruit, banana, longan, lychee, watermelon, rambutan, jackfruit, mangosteen, passion fruit, and durian.
