Of which, according to customs declarations, they were mainly cloth face masks, fine dustproof face masks, 100-percent cotton face masks, and double-layer cotton face masks.

Around 36.88 million face masks were produced and exported under processing contracts while around 51.3 million face masks were exported for non-commercial purposes.

Vietnamese-made face masks have been exported to some large markets, including Japan with 32.7 million masks, South Korea with 17.1 million masks, Germany with 11.1 million masks, the US with 10.4 million masks, Hong Kong (China) with 4.1 million masks, Singapore with 1.8 million masks, Poland with 1.5 million masks, Australia with 1.5 million masks, China with 1.5 million masks, Laos with 1.2 million masks, and South Africa with 1.1 million masks.
