RI Depending Cotton Imports from Third Countries PDF Print E-mail

Almost 100% of cotton needs for textile industry in Indonesia must be imported. Crop cotton that is difficult to be cultivated in Indonesia so the reason. Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API), Ade Sudrajat, said that the largest imported cotton now comes from the United States (US), Brazil, and Australia. The value of imports in a year on average reaches US $ 1 billion.

 

"The biggest cotton we currently hang cotton raw materials is almost 100% imports, not only from the US, we also import from Brazil, Australia, so that imports we do so far," said Ade Indonesia Cotton Day at Ritz Carlton, Jakarta, Wednesday (6/9/2017).

According to him, although the US is currently the largest cotton exporter country to Indonesia, the place is sometimes overtaken by two other exporter countries such as Brazil and Australia.

"The US is ranked first, it can be taken over by Australia and Brazil, the trend of exchange because it depends on price, harvest time, and quality of each country," explained Ade.

 

Cotton prices are also up and down. Currently the price of imported cotton is around US $ 1.1 per kg.

 

"Cotton prices 52 cents per pound, if per kg US $ 1.1. But never ever cotton ever 90 cents per pound, so per kg had US $ 1.9 per kg to US $ 2 per kg, had occurred in 2011-2012. That's why the various industries here can not sell, "explained this textile entrepreneur.

 

He explained, imported cotton is largely absorbed by the underwear industry as well as footwear, because it absorbs sweat.

 

"We are import related to end consumer demand, more cotton for what, currently used for underwear, for footwear. Because it absorbs better sweat and exchanges air circulation is good, "said Ade.

 

RI Tergantung Kapas Impor dari 3 Negara Ini

 

Hampir 100% kebutuhan kapas untuk industri tekstil di Indonesia harus diimpor. Tanaman kapas yang sulit dibudidayakan di Indonesia jadi alasannya. Ketua Umum Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API), Ade Sudrajat, menuturkan kapas import terbesar sekarang ini datang dari Amerika Serikat (AS), Brasil, serta Australia. Nilai impornya dalam setahun rata-rata mencapai US$ 1 miliar.

 

” Kapas terbesar saat ini kita gantungkan bahan baku kapas hampir 100% import, bukan hanya dari AS, kita juga impor dari Brasil, Australia, jadi itu impor-impor yang kita lakukan selama ini, ” kata Ade saat Indonesia Cotton Day di Ritz Carlton, Jakarta, Rabu (6/9/2017).

Menurut dia, meski AS saat ini menjadi negara eksportir kapas terbesar ke Indonesia, tempat itu kadang disalip dua negara exportir lainnya seperti Brasil serta Australia.

” AS menduduki peringkat kesatu, bisa di ambil alih Australia serta Brasil, trennya tukar menukar karena tergantung harga, masa panen, serta kualitas dari masing-masing negara, ” terang Ade.

 

Harga kapas juga naik turun. Saat ini harga kapas import berkisar US$ 1,1 per kg.

 

” Harga kapas 52 sen per pound, kalau per kg US$ 1,1. Tetapi kan pernah juga kapas pernah 90 sen per pound, jadi per kg pernah US$ 1,9 per kg hingga US$ 2 per kg, sempat terjadi di 2011-2012. Itu sebabkan apa berbagai industri disini tidak dapat jual, ” jelas entrepreneur tekstil ini.

 

Dia memaparkan, kapas import sebagian besar diserap oleh industri pakaian dalam serta alas kaki, lantaran menyerap keringat.

 

” Kita import terkait permintaan konsumen akhir, lebih banyak katun untuk apa, saat ini digunakan buat pakaian dalam, untuk alas kaki. Karna menyerap keringat lebih bagus dan menukar udara sirkulasinya bagus, ” papar Ade.
