For 15 consecutive years, from 2006 to 2020, even in difficult times, the Vietnamese cashew industry has always maintained its No. 1 position in cashew nut export and completely mastered technology and processing equipment. From 2017 up to now, Vietnam has become the world's No. 1 cashew processing and import-export center, accounting for more than 50% of processed raw cashew. In 2020, according to statistics from the General Department of Customs, although heavily affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, cashew nut exports still reach nearly 515 thousand tons, worth $ 3.21 billion, up 13%. in volume, but down 2.3% in value compared to 2019. According to Vinacas, in 30 years, from 1990 to the end of 2020, the cashew industry has exported over 4.6 million tons of cashew nuts, with a total value estimated at more than 31 billion USD. Especially in the past 10 years, thanks to the application of science and technology, mechanization and automation of the cashew processing industry, it has solved many previously raised problems such as labor scarcity, environmental pollution to management. product quality, especially the issue of ensuring food safety and hygiene, is of great concern to cashew importing countries.


In 2021, Vietnam aims to export cashew nuts to 3.6 billion USD, up 12.9% compared to 2020. The Vietnamese cashew industry will continue to persevere with the goal of "keeping quantity, increasing quality and increasing prices. "in manufacturing and trading in the year 2021 and the following years. According to VINACAS, the supply of cashew nuts in 2021 is quite stable. The total cashew area of ​​Vietnam in 2021 will reach 297,000 ha, equal to 99.7% compared to 2020. Meanwhile, large cashew exporters had orders for the first quarter of 2021.
