According to the market report released at the end of 2021, it is predicted that the white quartz material still holds the top position in interior construction materials in 2022. In Vietnam, the quartz consumption and export market is still increasing compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. Vinaquartz’s quartz slab is considered the top surface material in Vietnam, maintaining its brand position and having outstanding sales.
Importing the Quartz slab from Vietnam: NOW is the time!
The market is moving slowly, along with the number of goods entering the US market is also decreasing. This has led to some businesses questioning whether or not it is worth importing goods at this time.
Comparing the freight situation in July 2022 with the same time in 2021, it has decreased by about USD4000/cont this year. This is a bright spot for businesses considering importing goods at present because sea freight is considered one of the most important costs when importing.
Moreover, some provinces in China are also in lockdown, so many goods from here to ports have decreased. As a result, space is available from Vietnam to major ports in the US. It also becomes a lot easier to get empty containers than in 2021.
When the market is gradually recovering, it is essential to have a suitable strategy when importing goods. Especially when sea freight tends to be preferential, companies should carefully follow the market to seize opportunities to boost business.
