In the real estate sector, rising FDI inflows and increasing demand for industrial land from foreign-invested enterprises have led to higher rental rates and land lease demand. In addition, the recent upgrade of the Vietnam-US relationship to a comprehensive strategic partnership is expected to create significant opportunities for real estate developers with large land banks and strategic locations, such as Viglacera.
To seize these opportunities, Viglacera is continuing to focus on land acquisition and infrastructure construction, sales promotion at residential and industrial projects, and the development of new industrial and residential projects. These efforts are aimed at staying ahead of the curve, increasing competitiveness, and attracting investors, which will ultimately create long-term value for Viglacera.
In the materials industry, Viglacera is also investing in green, environmentally friendly products. In September 2023, the company inaugurated a new line for producing sintered stone with a total investment of VND 1.2 trillion. The line has produced the largest sintered stone panel in Vietnam, measuring 1.62 meters by 3.31 meters. This is a significant milestone for Viglacera, as it demonstrates the company’s commitment to leading the Vietnamese materials industry in the adoption of advanced technologies.

For the coming period, Viglacera will focus on improving operational efficiency, reducing production costs, and balancing production and sales in the materials industry. The company will also continue to expand its market presence and introduce new high-value products, such as sintered stone and ultra-white glass.
Export sales have also been a bright spot for Viglacera, with export revenue for the first 9 months of the year reaching USD 33.6 million, an increase of 151% YoY. The company’s ceramic tiles, building glass, and sanitary ware products all recorded growth in export sales during this period.
Viglacera’s products are currently exported to over 40 countries and territories around the world. The company is committed to using advanced production technologies and recycling capabilities to reduce carbon emissions and help achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
In spite of the challenging economic environment and the slow recovery of the materials industry, Viglacera’s performance is a testament to the company’s commitment to continuous improvement.
To achieve these results, Viglacera has implemented effective business strategies, closely monitored market trends, managed risks, and proactively planned production to improve operational efficiency. This is a testament to the company’s growth potential in both its real estate and materials industries.
