Rupiah Weakens, Textile Entrepreneur Raise Price 10% PDF Print E-mail

The weakening of the rupiah against the US dollar (US) impact on the textile industry, the majority of raw materials is imported. This condition makes textile entrepreneurs raise prices up to 10%.

 

As is known Rupiah continues to move depressed, hit the US dollar is becoming more powerful. Based on Bloomberg Dollar Index, Friday (13/7/2018), Rupiah in spot exchange trading opened the level Rp14.360 per USD.

 

Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat stated, for textile entrepreneurs whose business is export-oriented, no problem with the strengthening condition of the US dollar. However, entrepreneurs with the domestic market made them raise prices since a week ago by 10%.

 

"About 10% increase in price, already since a week ago," he said.

 

According to him, the price increase should be done to keep the business entrepreneurs. Because, not only about the cost of expensive imports, rises in crude oil and coal in global markets, also impact on transportation and production costs.

 

"We have to raise the price, because the efficiency of all kinds has been done, besides the other cost also increase, the transportation will go up, all the components go up," he explained.

 

Nevertheless, it can not assess the market response with the price increase. Currently sales are still running as usual, but it will see the market response within the next month.

 

"Still the way (sales as usual), whether our market is able to absorb 10% is still a question, but we will see in the next month what kind," he said.

 

According to him, textile entrepreneurs need the certainty of the rupiah exchange rate so that it can develop a business plan with certainty.

 

Rupiah Melemah, Pengusaha Tekstil Naikan Harga 10%

 

Pelemahan nilai tukar rupiah terhadap dolar Amerika Serikat (AS) berimbas pada industri tekstil, yang mayoritas bahan bakunya merupakan impor. Kondisi ini membuat pengusaha tekstil menaikkan harga hingga 10%.

 

Seperti diketahui Rupiah terus bergerak tertekan, terpukul dolar AS yang kian perkasa. Berdasarkan Bloomberg Dollar Index,Jumat (13/7/2018), Rupiah pada perdagangan spot exchange dibuka level Rp14.360 per USD.

 

Ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat menyatakan, bagi pengusaha tekstil yang bisnisnya berorientasi ekspor, tak bermasalah dengan kondisi penguatan dolar AS. Namun, pengusaha dengan pasar domestik membuat mereka menaikkan harga sejak sepekan yang lalu sebesar 10%.

 

"Sekitar 10% kenaikan harganya, sudah sejak seminggu yang lalu," ungkapnya .

 

Menurutnya, kenaikan harga memang harus dilakukan pengusaha untuk mempertahankan bisnisnya. Sebab, bukan saja soal biaya impor yang mahal, kenaikan pada minyak mentah dan batu bara di pasar global, juga berimbas pada ongkos transportasi dan produksi.

 

"Harus menaikkan harga, tidak bisa tidak. Karena efisiensi segala macam kan sudah dilakukan. Selain itu cost lainnya juga ikut naik. Transportasi kan ikut naik. Semua komponen ikut naik," jelasnya

 

Kendati demikian, pihaknya belum bisa menilai respons pasar dengan kenaikan harga tersebut. Saat ini penjualan masih berjalan seperti biasa, namun pihaknya akan melihat respons pasar dalam satu bulan ke depan.

 

"Masih jalan (penjualan seperti biasa), apakah pasar kita mampu menyerap 10% itu masih pertanyaan. Tapi kita lihat dalam sebulan ke depan seperti apa," katanya.

 

Menurutnya, pengusaha tekstil membutuhkan kepastian dari nilai tukar Rupiah sehingga bisa menyusun rancangan bisnis dengan pasti.
