As of May 15, 2024, Vietnam's shrimp exports reached 1.1 billion USD, up 8.3% over the same period last year. By the end of the second quarter of this year, shrimp exports can continue to maintain growth momentum when inventories are reduced, export prices are more positive, and demand is more positive from main markets.

As of May 15, 2024, Vietnamese shrimp exports to the EU reached 134 million USD, up 1.2% over the same period. Although the cumulative figure from the beginning of the year only increased slightly, shrimp exports to this market have tended to increase well in recent months. As of May 15, 2024, shrimp exports to Japan reached 161 million USD, a slight decrease of 3% over the same period. The Japanese market also has a similar trend to the EU market. The accumulated export value from the beginning of the year decreased slightly but has shown signs of increasing since April.

Orders from the EU and Japan are expected to increase in the second quarter of this year. Especially in the EU market, there are signs of increased demand, especially for certified shrimp products. Demand from Japan is also quite positive, but orders are slower due to the devaluation of the yen and Golden Week.

As of May 15, 2024, Vietnamese shrimp exports to China & Hong Kong reached 223 million USD, an increase of 31%. Although the cumulative number to China & HK markets increased, exports to this market have shown signs of decreasing in recent months. It is expected that shrimp exports to this market in the second quarter will hardly grow strongly. The reason is that China's demand for frozen shrimp slows down. In this market, Vietnam also has to compete strongly with Ecuador. Starting from May 1, 2024, China reduces import tax to 0% for Ecuadorian shrimp under the bilateral Free Trade Agreement. In addition, shrimp suppliers to China also face strong competition from increased domestic shrimp production, putting pressure on imported shrimp prices.

Most large processing factories exporting to China and HK markets have had to adjust raw material prices by 1-3%.

The volume of US whiteleg shrimp imports from Vietnam in April this year remained stable at 4,168 tons, higher than other markets.

Shrimp export enterprises have been trying to map out strategies for development such as increasing quality and creating a difference for their products in the market. Besides, applying science and technology to both production and farming stages to increase efficiency and reduce product costs.
