Chemical, textile and miscellaneous industries (IKTA) sector grew positively throughout the first quarter of 2018. However, as the chemical industry declined, the growth was lower than in the same period of the previous year.


In the first 3 months of last year, IKTA sector grew by 5.16% on an annual basis. The growth was sustained by the chemical industry and chemical goods sector at 10.40%.


Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono, Director General of IKTA of the Ministry of Industry, said that in the first quarter of this year, the chemical sector decreased 12%, causing the overall growth of IKTA to be below last year's growth figure.


"The downs are chemical because imports reach US $ 20 billion, if the dollar rises raw materials also go up, Petrochemicals for example, once the world oil price below US $ 50 per barrel, now US $ 60-US $ 70, while the raw material is 90% he said in Jakarta, Monday (14/05/2018).


To reduce the dependence of imported raw materials in the chemical sector, the government began to encourage the development of gas-based petrochemical industries, for example in the Bintuni area, as well as naphtha cracker investment by Chandra Asri Petrochemical and Lotte Chemical.


Other sectors, such as textiles and textile products (TPT), footwear, pharmaceuticals, and cement are still growing positively, even above Kemenperin expectations. Sigit details textile industry grows 7.53%, footwear grows 5%, cement 5%, and pharmaceutical 7.6%.


"TPT industry is rising because of preparations ahead of Eid," he said.


By year-end, Kemenperin targets IKTA sector to grow by 4.5% on an annual basis.


Kuartal I, Industri Kimia, Tekstil, dan Aneka Tumbuh


Sektor industri kimia, tekstil, dan aneka (IKTA) masih tumbuh positif sepanjang kuartal I/2018. Namun, karena industri kimia mengalami penurunan, pertumbuhan tersebut lebih rendah dibandingkan dengan periode yang sama tahun sebelumnya.


Pada 3 bulan pertama tahun lalu, sektor IKTA tumbuh sebesar 5,16% secara tahunan. Pertumbuhan tersebut ditopang oleh sektor industri bahan kimia dan barang dari bahan kimia sebesar 10,40%.


Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono, Dirjen IKTA Kementerian Perindustrian, mengatakan pada kuartal I tahun ini, sektor kimia justru menurun 12%, sehingga menyebabkan pertumbuhan IKTA secara keseluruhan berada di bawah angka pertumbuhan tahun lalu.


"Yang down itu kimia karena impor mencapai US$20 miliar, kalau dolar naik bahan baku juga naik. Petrokimia misalnya, dulu harga minyak dunia di bawah US$50 per barel, sekarang US$60—US$70, padahal bahan baku itu 90% impor," katanya di Jakarta, Senin (14/5/2018).


Untuk mengurangi ketergantungan bahan baku impor di sektor kimia, pemerintah mulai mendorong pengembangan industri petrokimia berbasis gas, misalnya di kawasan Bintuni, serta investasi nafta cracker oleh Chandra Asri Petrochemical dan Lotte Chemical.


Sektor lainnya, seperti tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT), alas kaki, farmasi, serta semen masih tumbuh positif, bahkan di atas ekspektasi Kemenperin. Sigit memerinci industri TPT tumbuh 7,53%, alas kaki tumbuh 5%, semen 5%, dan farmasi 7,6%.


"Industri TPT itu naik karena persiapan jelang lebaran," katanya.


Hingga akhir tahun, Kemenperin menargetkan sektor IKTA tumbuh sebesar 4,5% secara tahunan.
