In March 2024, Vietnam witnessed a significant surge in its cassava and cassava product exports, with a 45.1% increase in volume and a 47.6% rise in value from February 2024, despite a slight decrease in volume but a 15.6% increase in value over the first three months compared to the same period in 2023. China remains the primary market, absorbing 94.24% of these exports, with Vietnam overtaking Thailand as the top supplier of cassava starch to China in early 2024.

This has led to a reduction in cassava chip purchases by export enterprises, expecting over a 10% drop in consumption for 2024, prompting some businesses to consider diversifying their agricultural product range.
