Sqoop allows you to import the file as different files. To import the file as a Parquet file, use the --as-parquetfile switch along with your sqoop import command. 

$ sqoop import <options> --as-parquetfile

And just so you know, you can also import into other file formats as mentioned below

File Type Switch
Avro Data --as-avrodatafile
Sequence File --as-sequencefile
Text File --as-textfile
