Competitive Environment

The global market for fish sauce is highly fragmented, with vendors competing for innovation, pricing, and distribution. One liter of pure fish sauce can be made into several liters with an aromatic flavor, if produced industrially. However, not all the entrants make profits. Ngoc Nghia, a company in Vietnam, spent a lot of money on marketing and incurred a loss of USD 35 million. The pure fish sauce is expensive and not many consumers can afford it. Hence, the industrially produced products are gaining popularity, which is a positive development for the market.
