2018 is expected to be a favourable year for Vietnamese shrimp exports, especially if the preliminary POR 13 results are reviewed with a lower TCBPG level. Shark catfish has recovered. VASEP estimates that Vietnam's catfish exports may reach $ 1.85 billion in 2018 (+ 3.9%).
Production of shrimp and catfish is expected to increase in 2018. Demands from foreign markets will be a key driver for shrimp exports, driving up shrimp prices. As for shark catfish, the recovery of breeding stock as well as high price of shark catfish will make farmers go back to shark catfish, boosting output in 2018.
Imports into the US market will likely be affected by the high TCBPG but will be offset by rising demand from the Chinese market. In general, high TCBPG will be beneficial to export enterprises not subject to tax like Vinh Hoan (VHC).
It is believed that the demand from China will continue to increase sharply, reaching at least 40-50% of volume for both shrimp and catfish.
