Cashew is mainly planted in India, Ivory Coast, Brazil and Vietnam. The raw cashew production output is continuously increasing by CARG = 3% during the 2009/2010 – 2016/2017 season. The cashew kernels production output globally in the season 2016/2017 continues increasing and reaches about 754.7 thousand tons. The demand for cashew kernel consumption reaches 787 thousand tons in 2017, increasing by 10% compared to 2016. In 2016, cashew kernels export globally reached about 498.1 thousand tons, decreasing slightly compared to 2015 which was 502.4 thousand tons. Vietnam is currently the largest exporter of cashew kernel in the world with the exports accounting for 56% of the global output in 2016. In 2017, the cashew growing area is estimated to be 240.4 thousand hectares, 252 thousand tons of the output which was decreased by almost 50,000 thousand tons compared to 2016. Although Vietnam is the greatest exporter of cashew, the industry in Vietnam still faces challenges, for example, the domestic production output only meets 1/3 of the export processing enterprises. The domestic consumption of the cashew kernels accounts for 10% and the rest is for export.

There are still opportunities for the prospects of cashew industry in Vietnam to grow in the next few years. In 2016, most of the enterprises have positive growth of net revenue and the average growth reached 13.9%. Olam Vietnam is the largest revenue earner. According to Vinacas, in 2017, the whole industry makes attempt to reach 330 thousand tons of exporting types of cashew kernel with over $3.3 billion.
