Textile entrepreneurs are optimistic that the government projected the growth this year. The government set a target of growth of the textile industry by 1.6% -1.8% in 2017.


The Central Bureau of Statistics noted that the growth of the textile industry reached 3.65% in the second quarter of 2017. This growth exceeded the growth performance in the previous quarter by 0.16%.


Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association Ade Sudrajat said that the growth performance exceeds the expectations of entrepreneurs who estimate the performance in the second quarter is relatively stagnant. "For us that growth is quite encouraging,"


According to him, the increase in growth is the impact of many textile companies that relocate the plant to Central Java. The large number of factory relocations helped increase the productivity of textile producers, considering that the minimum wage in Central Java is more competitive than other locations. "That way production can grow, because the minimum wage there is more measurable."


Ade suspects that the growth rate growth is also influenced by the increase of investment realization in the first half of this year. "Textile factory investment is also growing quite large. What else is playing in the upstream sector, "he said.


The Investment Coordinating Board noted investments in the textile industry reached Rp7.47 trillion in the first half of this year, up 46% yoy compared to the first half of last year. A total of Rp 5.02 trillion of which is a domestic investment, while the remaining US $ 184.3 million or equivalent to Rp 2.45 trillion is a foreign investment.


Ade said there are some large textile companies that realize the investment in the first half of this year. Such as Sritex, PAN Brothers, and Sateri Group. The three operate a new fiber and spinning mill.


"Maybe in the second semester there will be one textile company that is taken by Chinese investors of approximately Rp500 billion. They say they want to develop investments to Rp2 trillion to create a dyeing and finishing plant, "said Ade.


According to him, the government needs to support the domestic manufacturers' sales performance by holding back the rate of textile imports. Because domestic demand for textiles continues to be eroded by imported products.


"If the government is consistent in curbing imported textile goods from China, we are optimistic that domestic production will increase and the performance of textile growth could be even better."


Pengusaha Tekstil Optimistis Lampaui Target Pemerintah



Pengusaha tekstil optimistis melebihi proyeksi pertumbuhan yang dibidik pemerintah pada tahun ini. Pemerintah mematok target pertumbuhan industri tekstil sebesar 1,6%—1,8% pada 2017.


Badan Pusat Statistik mencatat pertumbuhan industri tekstil mencapai 3,65% pada kuartal kedua 2017. Pertumbuhan itu melebihi kinerja pertumbuhan pada kuartal sebelumnya sebesar 0,16%.


Ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia Ade Sudrajat menyatakan kinerja pertumbuhan itu melebihi ekspektasi pengusaha yang memperkirakan kinerja pada kuartal kedua relatif stagnan. “Bagi kami pertumbuhan segitu cukup menggembirakan,”


Menurutnya, kenaikan pertumbuhan itu merupakan dampak banyaknya perusahaan tekstil yang merelokasi pabrik ke Jawa Tengah. Banyaknya relokasi pabrik turut meningkatkan produktifitas produsen tekstil mengingat upah minimum di Jawa Tengah lebih kompetitif ketimbang lokasi lain. “Dengan begitu produksi bisa tumbuh, karena upah minimumnya di sana lebih terukur.”


Ade menduga kenaikan laju pertumbuhan itu juga dipengaruhi kenaikan realisasi investasi pada semester pertama tahun ini. “Investasi pabrik tekstil juga tumbuhnya juga cukup besar. Apa lagi yang main di sektor hulu,” ujarnya.


Badan Koordinasi Penanaman Modal mencatat investasi pada industri tekstil mencapai Rp7,47 triliun semester pertama tahun ini, atau naik 46% yoy dibandingkan semester pertama tahun lalu. Sebanyak Rp 5,02 triliun di antaranya merupakan investasi domestik, sementara sisanya senilai US$184,3 juta atau setara Rp 2,45 triliun merupakan investasi asing.


Ade menyatakan terdapat beberapa perusahaan tekstil besar yang merealisasikan investasi pada paruh pertama tahun ini. Seperti misalnya Sritex, PAN Brothers, dan Grup Sateri. Ketiganya mengoperasikan pabrik serat dan pemintalan baru.


“Mungkin di semester kedua nanti malah ada satu perusahaan tekstil yang ditakeover investor China kurang lebih Rp500 miliar. Kabarnya mereka mau kembangkan investasi jadi Rp2 triliun untuk membuat pabrik dyeing and finishing,” ujar Ade.


Menurutnya, pemerintah perlu mendukung kinerja penjualan pabrikan domestik dengan menahan laju impor tekstil. Sebab permintaan tekstil domestik terus tergerus oleh produk impor.


“Kalau pemerintah konsisten menertibkan barang tekstil impor dari China, kami optimistis produksi dalam negeri bisa meningkat dan kinerja pertumbuhan tekstil bisa lebih baik lagi.”
