Vietnam raked in approximately $77 billion from the export of phones, computers, electronic products, and spare parts during the past eight months of the year, according to the information published by the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
The four major importers of computers, phones, and components include the US, the EU, China, and South Korea, grossing a total turnover of approximately $27 billion throughout the reviewed period.
In the first eight months, all major markets increased their imports of products from the Vietnamese market. Notably, the export turnover to the US was $9.25 billion, China with $8.97 billion, and South Korea with $3.88 billion, signifying increases of 48, 11, and 23 percent, respectively.
Regarding the EU, despite the export turnover to this market dropping by 5 percent on year to $4.61 billion, it still stands in the top four of the largest export markets for computers, phones, and components.
In recent years, Vietnam attracted global electronic firms to the production of phones, computers, and electronic components, including Samsung, LG, Foxconn, Fukang Technology, and LG Display Haiphong.
Despite many difficulties, Samsung's export turnover in the first eight months reached $46 billion, up 12 percent over the same period last year. The group aims to complete the target of $68 billion for the whole year. In 2021, Samsung’s export turnover reached $65.5 billion, accounting for 20 percent of Vietnam's total export turnover.
Besides this, although there have not been updated figures for the first eight months, the export turnover of Foxconn, Luxshare, Winston, Pegatron, and Goertek in the first quarter exceeded $27 billion.
