Vietnam Sourcing: Footwear 2017 Industry overview

Vietnam Sourcing: Footwear 2017 Industry overview

Vietnam Sourcing: Footwear 2017

• Casual shoes • Formal shoes • Sports shoes • Children’s shoes

This section discusses key issues affecting export manufacturers in Vietnam, offering insight into industry composition and important supply centers.

Vietnam's footwear exportsCompetitive advantagesChallengesIndustry composition
  • Vietnam was the second largest exporter of footwear in the world in terms of export value in 2016.

  • Footwear exports in the first nine months of 2017 exceeded $10.6 billion.

  • Products sent to the US accounted for 35 percent of the export value during the nine-month period.
  • Vietnam’s free trade agreements offer opportunities to expand market reach and boost sales.

  • The FTAs also encourage increased investment in the footwear sector.

  • The large pool of workers and the country’s relatively low labor cost also support the growth of the industry.
  • Vietnam’s FTAs have rules of origin that products must comply with to be able to avail of preferential tariff rates.

  • Makers need to enhance their capability to design, manufacture and market high-value added products to boost competitiveness.

  • Financial constraints prevent many local footwear producers from investing in technology upgrades, R&D and marketing initiatives.
  • The footwear industry comprises about 1,700 companies.

  • Ho Chi Minh City and the nearby provinces of Binh Duong and Dong Nai are the main footwear production hubs in the south.

  • In the north, most makers can be found in the Red River Delta region.

Vietnam produces more than 900 million pairs of footwear each year, over 80 percent of which is sent overseas. From 2014 to 2016, annual exports of the industry exceeded $10 billion.

In 2016, Vietnam ranked as the second largest exporter of footwear in the world in terms of export value. The country sent abroad nearly $13.0 billion worth of products during the period, up more than 8 percent from 2015, according to data from the General Department of Customs, Ministry of Finance of Vietnam.

Between January and September 2017, Vietnam’s footwear exports grew 13 percent year over year to exceed $10.6 billion. Growth for the year is expected to remain at double-digit level.

The US is the largest single-country importer of footwear from Vietnam. During the nine-month period ended September 2017, about $3.8 billion worth of products went to this market.

China is another key destination, accounting for nearly $823.7 million of footwear exports in the first nine months of 2017. The other major importers of footwear from Vietnam are Germany, Belgium, Japan, the UK and the Netherlands.

Models with textile and leather uppers, which are the products covered in the report, make up the majority of products sent overseas. Statistics from the DESA/UNSD, United Nations Comtrade database show that these lines accounted for more than 70 percent of footwear exports from 2013 to 2015.

Vietnam Sourcing: Footwear exports 2017

Competitive advantages

Vietnam’s exports have and are expected to remain strong despite the withdrawal of the US from the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). This is attributed in part to the country’s existing free trade agreements (FTAs) and ongoing trade negotiations, which present opportunities for the footwear industry to increase its competitiveness and boost sales. The country’s efforts to fulfill commitments to these deals and create more favorable business conditions also support the sector’s growth.

Vietnam is a signatory of the ASEAN Free Trade Area. As a member of the ASEAN, it has also signed FTAs with China, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand, India and Japan. Additionally, the country has FTAs with Japan, Chile, South Korea and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), which comprises Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.

The Vietnam-EU FTA (EVFTA) is expected to enter into force in 2018. Under the EVFTA, tariffs on various types of footwear will be reduced to 0 percent or eliminated.

Negotiations for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) are underway. The proposed trade deal is between the 10 ASEAN members and the six economies with which it already has FTAs: China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. Among the issues covered by the RCEP are trade in goods and services, investment, economic and technical cooperation, intellectual property, competition, dispute settlement, e-commerce, and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Besides facilitating trade, the FTAs also encourage increased investment in the footwear industry and related sectors. Foreign-invested companies with manufacturing facilities in China, in particular, have moved to or expanded into Vietnam. The EVFTA is expected to attract more suppliers to Vietnam, according to a March 24, 2017, report on the Vietnam Investment Review, citing Bill Watson, managing director of Coats Phong Phu.

The country’s footwear industry includes factories with investors from Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and other countries. Foreign-invested companies account for about 80 percent of the industry’s exports, Viet Nam News reported Aug. 5, 2017, citing the Vietnam Leather, Footwear and Handbag Association (LEFASO).

Another factor supporting the growth of the footwear industry is its large pool of workers. Vietnam’s labor force in 2014 was about 54 million, according to data on the General Statistics Office of Vietnam.

Minimum wages in Vietnam are also relatively lower than those in China and several other countries in Asia.

Challenges

Global economic integration brings its own set of challenges, including increased competition. Locally and overseas, suppliers face strong competition from counterparts in China and other parts of Asia, as well as multinationals such as Nike, Adidas and Puma.

To boost competitiveness and take advantage of the opportunities that FTAs bring, footwear makers have to adhere to each agreement’s rules of origin. The EVFTA, for instance, requires that for products to obtain the preferred tariff, it should be made of materials “wholly obtained” from Vietnam, or from inputs sourced elsewhere but have undergone sufficient “working or processing” in the country.

Domestic content in Vietnam footwear is currently between 40 and 45 percent, a March 3, 2017, report on VietNamNet disclosed. The sector must increase this to 60 percent to comply with the rules of origin stipulated in the country’s trade deals, according to the news source.

Currently, leather and canvas are among the materials that a number of suppliers import since domestic supply cannot meet demand. To address the issue, the government is looking into setting up special industrial zones, which will include tanneries.

In addition to following rules of origin, representatives from LEFASO and the government have pointed out that makers need enhance their capability to design, manufacture and market high-value added products to keep the sector on a growth track. Most Vietnam manufacturers take part in the global supply chain as OEM suppliers of more established international names and following buyers’ design specifications. Consequently, there is a limited number of original designs sold under local brands, even in the domestic market.

Meeting internationally recognized environmental and social accountability standards such as ISO 14000 and SA 8000, in addition to product-specific guidelines, has also become necessary. Footwear companies are investing in structures that will allow them to comply with these standards because they are encountering more buyers requiring such from their suppliers.

Financial constraints, however, dampen many makers’ efforts to invest in capacity upgrades, R&D and marketing initiatives. Rising costs, especially labor-related expenses, further limit funds for investment.

In terms of technological improvements, some companies have invested in automated equipment for product development and manufacturing processes such as cutting and sewing, but these are mostly large enterprises.

Industry composition

Vietnam’s footwear industry comprises approximately 1,700 companies employing over 1.2 million people, according to the April 2017 report on Viet Nam News. About 800 of these suppliers are large operations.

Small footwear makers are those that typically employ up to 200 workers. With factories no larger than 5,700sqm, they produce about 57,000 pairs monthly and their annual export sales do not exceed $1.3 million.

Midsize companies have 200 to 500 workers, and their factories can occupy up to 16,000sqm. These suppliers can manufacture 57,000 to 570,000 pairs. Revenue from exports can range from $3 million to $5.5 million yearly.

Suppliers with larger operations generate more than $5.5 million in annual export sales. Several of these are foreign-invested enterprises.

In the south, Ho Chi Minh City and the nearby provinces of Binh Duong and Dong Nai are the main hubs of footwear production. In the north, most makers are located in the Red River Delta region.

Materials & designs

Footwear exports from Vietnam comprises various styles for different consumers. Genuine and synthetic leather are adopted in the uppers and soles of most categories. Cowhide and goatskin are the common options for genuine leather, while synthetic versions are either PU or PVC.

Cotton canvas is another popular material for the uppers of casual and sports shoes. Insoles can be made of EVA, PU or PVC for durability and comfort, while outsoles are constructed from PVC, PU or rubber to resist wear and tear.

Localization rate in the Vietnam’s leather and footwear sector is 40 to 45 percent, Viet Nam News reported Nov. 9, 2016, citing Phan Thi Thanh Xuan, general secretary of the Viet Nam Leather, Footwear and Handbag Association (LEFASO).

Companies using leather, in particular, import their most of their requirements from India, mainland China, Taiwan and South Korea. Cotton canvas, EVA and other materials are sourced from the cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, and Binh Duong and Dong Nai provinces, but some footwear suppliers import from mainland China or Taiwan.

Models under OEM contracts account for the majority of exports. Employing three to 10 people in product development, suppliers can typically create samples within three weeks.

For their own collections, R&D efforts are geared mainly toward comfortable footwear suitable for various occasions or activities. For men, lace-up shoes that can be worn with a casual or business ensemble are on trend. Recent releases come with cowhide or PU leather uppers and rubber outsoles.

In women’s shoes, neutral-colored ballet flats and pumps suitable for daytime or evening wear are in style. Genuine or synthetic leather uppers are paired with cushioned insoles and slip-resistant soles for comfort.

Manufacturing & QC

Most maker carry out the whole production process in-house, from the cutting of the uppers to the sewing, assembly and packaging of the final products. Some companies, however, subcontract the manufacture of the uppers since this phase is labor-intensive. There are also suppliers that outsource the production of EVA outsoles to factories in mainland China that specialize in these articles.

Footwear production consist of four stages: clicking or cutting; closing or machining; lasting; and finishing. The process is generally semi-mechanized, and several suppliers have automated machinery.

Materials for the uppers are cut to specifications using industrial scissors or knives, or cutting dies. These components are then assembled during machining using sewing machines.

Lasting is the stage where uppers are placed on a last, a mechanism shaped like a foot, and are attached to the insoles and other shoe components. Finishing touches include trimming, buffing, staining and waxing. Other details such as the laces, logo and tags are attached to the shoes before packaging. The entire production can last between six and eight weeks.

Footwear makers typically have seven to 10 QC inspectors. Among the specifications that these personnel check is the neatness of the stitching, seam strength and accuracy of the colors. Chemical tests are also conducted.

Footwear production can take between six and eight weeks.

Shoes meant for export follow internationally recognized guidelines such as those of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the EU’s Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH).

In recent years, a number of buyers are also requiring manufacturers to meet occupational health and safety standards, and social compliance guidelines.

Pricing

Pricing depends mainly on the materials used, as these manufacturing inputs account for as much as 65 percent of production expenses. Consequently, models that use cowhide and other types of genuine leather are generally more expensive than those with textile or synthetic leather uppers.

Another factor in pricing is design complexity, with labor costs making up about 20 percent of manufacturing expenses.

Footwear prices are expected to remain relatively stable in the next six months. Of the interviewed suppliers, most intend to keep prices at current levels since there has been no significant increases in production cost. A few companies plan to reduce prices to boost competitiveness.
