In the situation of COVID-19 pandemic complicated outbreaks in Europe and the Americas, many countries are forced to increase the import of masks and medical protective equipment such as gloves, gowns, etc… Vietnamese enterprises have quickly taken advantages of this opportunity to make up for some difficulties that the pandemic had caused.

Business opportunity due to huge market demand

According to the information from the European-American Market Department, The Ministry of Industry and Trade, many countries in Europe and the Americas are in need of importing masks, PPE for control and prevention of the COVID-19 pandemic which is more and more complicated in these areas.

In particular, the US market now needs to import about 500 million N95 masks, 200 million masks of all kinds, 1 billion gloves, 100 million sets of medical gowns, 50 million sets of PPE, etc…

Other markets such as Spain, Kazakhstan, Canada, Russia… are also in urgent need of importing masks and medical protective equipment.

Current difficulties that Vietnam exporters are facing

Along with business opportunities, Vietnam exporters in general and exporters of masks and PPE in particular, are facing many difficulties caused by COVID-19 pandemic, especially the difficulty of freight transport when the international cargo capacity of both sea freight and air freight is decreasing.

For masks and medical protective equipment that are in great demand and urgent need, delivery by air freight is a priority option. However, the global air cargo capacity has decreased since the airlines had cut the number of flights due to the effect of COVID-19.

Accordingly, the total global air cargo capacity decreased by 26% compared to the same period last year, while in Vietnam, airlines have cut 15-20% of the number of flights, some airlines flying to the US had completely stopped. Export delivery demand is rapidly increasing while air freight space dramatically decreased is really a big challenge.
