Textile export is targeted to grow 7% PDF Print E-mail

API and net export target and value added contributed by the textile industry until the end of 2018 to US $ 4 billion. The Indonesian Textile Association (API) projects this year's textile price growth to reach 7%. Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat Usman API also targets net added value to be contributed by the textile industry until the end of 2018 to US $ 4 billion, larger than 2017 which reached US $ 3.5 billion.


"However, this optimism must be supported by the synergy between parties, such as a series of producers from upstream to downstream, ITPT supporters and policy makers," said Ade.


As one of the government's priority industries, the textile and textile products (TPT) industry has proved 6.39% to GDP by 2017. However, this performance is still largely designed by textile producers. One of them is the price of raw materials available in the country.


Prices of domestic raw materials at competitive prices with the same materials from import sources. Raw material is polyester fiber as yarn raw material which is currently cost 13% more expensive abroad.


"These conditions are the main attraction of Indonesian textile product exports downstream," said Ade.


This significant price difference, Vietnam, Bangladesh, and the receiving countries of the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) facilities.


In order for nothing to deteriorate, it is necessary to cooperate among producers, policy makers to evaluate premium goods (the case of polyester fiber import duties) and tightening supervision from relevant ministries.


"It is expected that the problem can enter polyester can be reviewed again, then the price of raw materials that can improve productivity of ITPT Indonesia in the world," he concluded.



Ekspor tekstil ditarget tumbuh 7%


API juga menargetkan net ekspor dan nilai tambah yang disumbang oleh industri tekstil sampai akhir 2018 menjadi US$ 4 miliar.


Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) memproyeksikan pertumbuhan ekspor tekstil tahun ini dapat mencapai 7%. Ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat Usman API juga menargetkan net ekspor dan nilai tambah yang disumbang oleh industri tekstil sampai akhir 2018 menjadi US$ 4 miliar, lebih besar dibandingkan dengan 2017 yang mencapai nilai US$ 3,5 miliar


“Namun demikian, optimisme ini harus didukung oleh sinergitas antar pihak, seperti rangkaian para produsen dari hulu ke hilir, pendukung ITPT, dan penentu kebijakan,” kata Ade.


Sebagai salah satu industri yg diprioritaskan oleh pemerintah, industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) telah membuktikan kontribusi besar yaitu 6,39% terhadap PDB pada 2017.  Kendati demikian, kinerja ini masih banyak menyimpan permasalahan yang dihadapi oleh para produsen tekstil. Salah satunya adalah harga bahan baku yang tersedia di dalam negeri.


Harga bahan baku dalam negeri justru kalah bersaing dengan bahan yang sama dari sumber importasi. Bahan baku tersebut adalah serat polyester sebagai bahan baku benang yang saat ini harganya 13% lebih mahal daripada di luar negeri.


 “Kondisi ini mengakibatkan merosotnya daya saing ekspor produk tekstil Indonesia hingga ke hilir,” kata Ade.


Perbedaan harga yang cukup signifikan ini, menegaskan industri tekstil Indonesia kalah bersaing dengan negara lain seperti Vietnam, Bangladesh, dan sesama negara penerima fasilitas Generalized System of Preferences (GSP).


Agar kondisi tidak semakin memburuk, maka perlu kerjasama antar produsen, penentu kebijakan untuk mengevaluasi penerapan bea masuk komoditas bahan baku (kasus bea masuk serat polyester) dan pengetatan pengawasan dari kementerian terkait.


“Diharapkan bila kebijakan bea masuk polyester ini dapat ditinjau lagi, maka  harga bahan baku yg  berdaya saing bisa meningkatkan produktifitas ekspor ITPT Indonesia di pasar dunia,” pungkasnya.
