Demand for Textile Products for the 2019 Election Campaign PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer   
Friday, 20 July 2018

Demand for textiles and textile products for the needs of the 2019 presidential election campaign is predicted to be minimal, so the downward trend in domestic sales will continue.

 

The Indonesian Textile Association (API) projects an increase in domestic sales during next year's political campaign season will not be more than 6% compared to this year's achievement.

 

"Yes indeed there will be an increase in domestic absorption for textile and textile products (TPT) next year, especially during political campaigns], but not so significantly. Not the same as during Lebaran, "he said.

 

In fact, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is projecting Indonesia's cotton consumption for TPT raw materials will experience a slight increase next year, underpinned by apparel demand during the 2019 Presidential Election campaign.

 

USDA estimates that the increase of RI cotton consumption for TPT needs next year will reach 3.30 million pests. Meanwhile, the actual consumption of cotton for TPT last year was 3.25 million tons, down from the initial projection of 3.45 million tons.

 

According to Ade, the slope of domestic demand was triggered by consumption driven by only one party, namely the spending of political parties for campaign purposes. In contrast, the general public is not expected to increase the apparel shopping.

 

"Unlike with the holidays Lebaran, where people really set aside funds to shop apparel. If the Idul Fitri, the increase in consumption is indeed from the community of all circles. "

 

In the exposure of API to the coordination meeting of United States anticipation of the generalized system of preferences (GSP) at the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs received by Business recently, TPT industry has complained about domestic sales decline.

 

In the period of January-May 2018, Ade mentioned in the report, domestic TPT industry began to trouble selling goods in the domestic market. There are three things that trigger it.

 

First, because the fibers, yarns, and imported fabrics are regulated in Regulation of the Minister of Trade no. 64/2017 is allowed to be bought and sold off to the domestic market with consideration to meet the needs of small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).

 

Second, due to the entry of goods from Bonded Logistics Central (PLB) to the domestic market. "[Goods from bonded areas] It is allowed 50% to be sold domestically," he said.

 

Thirdly, the anti-dumping and safeguard mechanisms of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and spin drawn yam (SDY) recommended by the Indonesian Antidumping Committee (Kadi) can not yet be implemented.

 

"In addition, TPT exports can not be optimized due to minimal incentives. Tax allowances and holidays are difficult to implement, electricity discounts have no significant effect, and gas prices are still at US $ 9.6 / MMBtu, "he said.

 

 

Permintaan Produk Pertekstilan untuk Kampanye Pilpres 2019

 

Permintaan tekstil dan produk tekstil bagi kebutuhan kampanye politik Pemilihan Presiden 2019 diprediksi minim, sehingga tren pelemahan penjualan domestik akan berlanjut.

 

Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) memproyeksi kenaikan penjualan domestik saat musim kampanye politik tahun depan tidak akan lebih dari 6% dibandingkan dengan pencapaian tahun ini.

 

“Iya memang akan ada peningkatan [serapan domestik untuk tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) tahun depan, khususnya saat kampanye politik], tetapi tidak begitu signifikan. Tidak sama seperti saat Lebaran,” ujarnya.

 

Padahal, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) memproyeksi konsumsi kapas Indonesia untuk bahan baku TPT akan mengalami sedikit peningkatan tahun depan, ditopang oleh permintaan pakaian jadi selama ajang kampanye Pemilihan Presiden (Pilpres) 2019.

 

USDA memperkirakan, kenaikan konsumsi kapas RI untuk kebutuhan TPT pada tahun depan mencapai 3,30 juta sebal. Adapun, realisasi konsumsi kapas untuk TPT tahun lalu adalah 3,25 juta ton, turun dari proyeksi awal sejumlah 3,45 juta ton.

 

Menurut Ade, landainya permintaan domestik itu dipicu oleh konsumsi yang hanya didorong oleh satu pihak, yaitu belanja partai politik untuk kepentingan kampanye. Sebaliknya, masyarakat umum diperkirakan tidak meningkatkan belanja pakaian jadi.

 

“Beda dengan saat libur Lebaran, dimana masyarakat benar-benar menyisihkan dana untuk berbelanja pakaian jadi. Kalau Lebaran itu, peningkatan konsumsinya memang dari masyarakat segala kalangan.”

 

Dalam paparan API untuk rakor evaluasi antisipasi Amerika Serikat (AS) terhadap generalized system of preferences (GSP) di Kemenko Perekonomian yang diterima Bisnis belum lama ini, industri TPT memang mengeluhkan masalah penurunan penjualan domestik.

 

Pada periode Januari—Mei 2018, sebut Ade dalam laporan itu, industri TPT dalam negeri mulai kesulitan menjual barang di pasar domestik. Ada tiga hal yang menjadi pemicunya.

 

Pertama, karena serat, benang, dan kain impor yang diatur dalam Peraturan Menteri Perdagangan No. 64/2017 diperbolehkan untuk dibeli dan dijual putus ke pasar domestik dengan pertimbangan untuk memenuhi kebutuhan usaha mikro kecil dan menengah (UMKM).

 

Kedua, akibat masuknya barang dari kawasan Pusat Logistik Berikat (PLB) ke pasar domestik. “[Barang dari kawasan berikat] Diperbolehkan 50% dijual ke dalam negeri,” ungkapnya.

 

Ketiga, karena mekanisme antidumping  dan safeguard polietilena tereftalat (PET) dan spin drawn yam (SDY) yang direkomendasikan oleh Komite Antidumping Indonesia (Kadi) belum bisa diimplementasikan.

 

“Selain itu, ekspor TPT tidak dapat dioptimalkan karena minim insentif. Tunjangan dan libur pajak sulit diimplementasikan, diskon listrik tidak berpengaruh signifikan, dan harga gas masih US$9,6/MMBtu,” paparnya.
