Key Highlights

  • Vietnam has risen to prominence as the most recent East Asian growth engine, attracting the attention of international investors. It is in the midst of a transformation. The government's economic reforms transformed the country into one of the world's fastest-growing economies.
  • Despite the epidemic, the Vietnamese economy continued to demonstrate significant growth patterns, making the country a favorable investment destination for foreigners. In the residential construction market, high-end condos in the city remained in demand despite the pandemic, and there were no signs of a fall in prices.
  • From now to 2023, the supply of industrial land in the North is expected to increase by an average of 7.4% per annum, while the supply of warehouse and ready-built factories is also expected to increase by 46% and 10% per annum, respectively.
  • In housing projects, the Hanoi People's Committee issued a decision approving the outline for devising the capital's housing development program for 2021-2030, with a vision toward 2040.
  • The increasing demand for warehousing drives investment in Vietnam's logistics system with foreign enterprises' appearance and further business expansion. E-commerce and food delivery has now become very crucial in everyday life.
  • Vietnam’s competitive advantage will continue to increase as work progresses on major infrastructure projects aimed at improving logistics in the country: the construction of the North-South Expressway linking Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City will increase domestic transportation capacity along a corridor that connects industrial zones with urban centers, ports and the border with China.
  • With the strong growth of industrial real estate during the pandemic, many new investors decided to enter the market, including domestic developers (Vinhomes, Thanh Cong Group) and foreign developers (JD.com, Fraser, ESR). In addition, investment funds have also participated via investment into potential projects such as Actis, which recently announced an investment into a local industrial park operator.

Vietnam Construction Market Competitor Analysis

The construction market in Vietnam is fiercely competitive, with big domestic and international businesses. Song Da Corp JSC, Truong Xuan Investment And Construction JSC, COFICO, Hoa Binh Construction Group JSC, and Coteccons Construction JSC are just a few of the key competitors in the sector.

The building business in Vietnam has grown significantly in recent decades. Furthermore, Vietnam's construction capability has advanced significantly, allowing it to handle the building needs of large-scale projects.

In Vietnam, the construction sector is characterized by a considerable quantity of initial investment capital and a reliance on bank financing. Low disbursement rates and project postponement using public investment funding are two factors that have had a substantial impact on construction enterprises' financial status.

To deal with the challenges, many enterprises in the industry have implemented various development strategies, such as maintaining core industries (construction, installation, or building of underground works) while diversifying into real estate, hydropower, and renewable energy.
