The domestic textile and textile industry (TPT) industries require product diversification to remain competitive. The textile industry that produces clothing is saturated so it must move the production slot to other production.


"In order to survive, we have to diversify, for example for the automotive, maritime, and tire industries," said Benny Soetrisno, Vice Chairman of Indonesian Trade Chamber of Commerce.


According to him, there needs to be support from the side of raw materials of products in the upstream industry. Especially in the upstream textile industry according to it's high risk, high investment, and also low return.


Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API), Ade Sudrajat said prior to the diversification, internal problems of state rules, energy, and human resource capability and logistics capability must be addressed first.


Externally, there should be bilateral cooperation with the United States and the European Union to expand local textile export markets. So that Indonesia can compete with Vietnam and Bangladesh which currently grows in the textile industry.


Quoting from the Ministry of Industry which estimates TPT industrial exports will grow an average of 11% per year, which in 2018 is targeted at US $ 13.5 billion and labor of about 2.95 million people


Industri tekstil perlu lakukan diversifikasi produk


Industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) di dalam negeri memerlukan diversifikasi produk agar tetap punya daya saing. Industri tekstil yang memproduksi pakaian sudah jenuh sehingga harus pindah slot produksi ke produksi lain.


"Supaya bisa bertahan harus diversifikasi. Misalnya untuk industri otomotif, maritim, dan juga ban," ujar Benny Soetrisno, Wakil Ketua Umum Kadin Indonesia Bidang Perdagangan.


Menurutnya, perlu ada dukungan dari sisi bahan baku produk di industri hulu. Apalagi di industri hulu tekstil menurutnya itu high risk, high investment, dan juga low return.


Ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API), Ade Sudrajat mengatakan sebelum adanya diversifikasi, masalah internal dari aturan negara, energi, dan kemampuan sumber daya manusia serta kemampuan logistik harus dibenahi terlebih dahulu.


Secara eksternal, harus ada kerja sama bilateral dengan Amerika Serikat dan Uni Eropa untuk memperluas pasar ekspor TPT lokal. Agar Indonesia dapat bersaing dengan Vietnam dan Bangladesh yang saat ini tumbuh pesar di industri tekstil.


Mengutip dari Kemenperin yang memperkirakan ekspor industri TPT akan tumbuh rata-rata 11% per tahun, yang pada tahun 2018 ditargetkan sebesar US$ 13,5 miliar dan tenaga kerja sekitar 2,95 juta orang
