Vietnam overtakes Thailand to become China’s largest durian supplier

April 07, 2024

China imported over 53,000 metric tons of durians valued at $283 million in the two-month period. Despite taking a lead in durian exports, the average export price of Vietnam’s durians reached $4,900 per metric tons, lower than the $6,133 of Thailand. The short transport time between Vietnam and China helps reduce the durian prices, which is another advantage of Vietnamese durians. As of last year, Vietnam had some 110,000 hectares of durian farms with an output of 900,000 metric tons, double the area and output in 2019. In 2023, Vietnam exported more than 595,000 metric tons of durians with a value of $2.1 billion to China.
