If The Rupiah Continues To Weaken, These Goods Will Be More Expensive PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer

The recent weakening of the rupiah against the US dollar is predicted to continue as a result of trade wars between the United States and China as well as tight monetary policy in Uncle Sam and other parts of the world.

 

"The immediate impact [of trade war] is the possibility of pressure on the rupiah.It is rather difficult, maybe the rupiah will still be depressed until the end of the year," said University of Indonesia economic analyst Fithra Faisal Hastiadi.

 

Textile Products

 

Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat said so far the weakening of the rupiah led to an increase in production costs due to an increase in cost structure of about 10%.

 

"In the cost structure it all adjusts the state of the dollar, such as electricity, electricity automatically rises, all threads go up, all kinds of rises.That means our cost structure must be expensive, yes as consumers must definitely pay," he explained.

 

For that, Ade said it would be dangerous for domestic sales if the market is not able to absorb the product. The textile entrepreneur, he continued, will first see the market response to decide whether it is necessary to raise prices to keep earning sufficient profit margins.

 

Bila Rupiah Terus Melemah, Barang-barang Ini Akan Makin Mahal

 

Pelemahan nilai tukar rupiah terhadap dolar Amerika Serikat (AS) yang terjadi belakangan ini diprediksikan masih akan berlanjut sebagai dampak dari perang dagang antara AS dan China serta kebijakan moneter ketat di Negeri Paman Sam maupun di belahan dunia lainnya.

 

"Adapun dampak [perang dagang] segera adalah kemungkinan terjadinya tekanan pada rupiah. Memang agak sulit, mungkin rupiah masih akan tertekan sampai akhir tahun," kata pengamat ekonomi Universitas Indonesia Fithra Faisal Hastiadi.

 

Produk Tekstil

 

Ketua Umun Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat mengatakan sejauh ini pelemahan rupiah menyebabkan peningkatan biaya produksi akibat peningkatan struktur biaya sekitar 10%.

 

"Dalam struktur biaya itu semuanya menyesuaikan keadaan dolar. Misalnya listrik, listrik itu otomatis naik, benang semua naik, segala macam naik. Artinya cost structure kita pasti mahal, ya sebagai konsumen sudah pasti harus bayar," jelasnya.

 

Untuk itu, Ade mengatakan hal ini akan berbahaya bagi penjualan dalam negeri apabila pasarnya tidak mampu menyerap produknya. Pengusaha tekstil, lanjutnya, akan terlebih dahulu melihat respons pasar untuk memutuskan apakah perlu menaikkan harga untuk tetap memperoleh margin keuntungan yang cukup.
