Expensive Textile Raw Materials PDF Print E-mail

As one of the government's priority industries, the textile and textile industry (TPT) has proven a substantial contribution of 6.39 percent to GDP in 2017. However, this performance still retains many problems faced by textile producers.

 

One of them is the price of raw materials available in the country. It was found that the price of domestic raw materials would not compete with the same materials from import sources. The raw material is polyester fiber as yarn raw material.

 

According to the chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat Usman, the price of polyester raw materials in the country reached 13 percent more expensive than the price abroad.

 

"This condition resulted in the declining competitiveness of Indonesian textile products exports downstream," said Ade in an official statement on Wednesday (7/25/2018).

 

Furthermore, Ade explained that the significant price difference is that Indonesia's textile industry is unable to compete with other countries such as Vietnam, Bangladesh and fellow countries receiving the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) from the United States.

 

According to him, in order not to worsen the condition, it needs cooperation between producers, policy makers to evaluate the application of import duties of raw materials (cases of polyester fiber import duties) and tightening supervision from relevant ministries.

 

"It is expected that polyester import duty policy can be reviewed again, then the competitive raw materials price can increase the productivity of Indonesian ITPT exports in the world market," he said.

 

This is also in line with the API target to increase net exports and value added contributed by the textile industry until the end of 2018 to US $ 4 billion, more than in 2017 which reached US $ 3.5 billion.

 

Meanwhile, amid awaited decision by the United States on the evaluation of GSP facilities they provide to trading partner countries, ITPT's optimism could boost its export performance. API projects textile export growth this year to reach 7 percent.

 

But this optimism must be supported by synergy between parties, such as a series of producers from upstream to downstream, supporting ITPT, and policy makers.

 

Bahan Baku Tekstil Mahal

 

Sebagai salah satu industri yg diprioritaskan oleh pemerintah, industri tekstil dan produk tekstil (TPT) telah membuktikan kontribusi besar yaitu 6,39 persen terhadap PDB pada tahun 2017. Namun demikian, kinerja ini masih banyak menyimpan permasalahan yang dihadapi oleh para produsen tekstil.

 

Salah satunya adalah harga bahan baku yang tersedia di dalam negeri. Ditemukan bahwa 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.

 

Menurut ketua Ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat Usman, harga bahan baku polyester di tanah air mencapai 13 persen lebih mahal dari pada harga di luar negeri.

 

“Kondisi ini mengakibatkan merosotnya daya saing ekspor produk tekstil Indonesia hingga ke hilir,” ungkap Ade dalam keterangan resmi, Rabu (25/7/2018).

 

Lebih lanjut Ade menjelaskan, 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) dari AS.

 

Menurutnya juga, 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,” ungkap dia.

 

Hal ini juga sejalan dengan target API untuk meningkatkan net ekspor dan nilai tambah yang disumbang oleh industri tekstil sampai akhir tahun 2018 menjadi US$ 4 miliar, lebih banyak dibandingkan dengan tahun 2017 yang mencapai nilai US$ 3,5 miliar.

 

Sementara itu, di tengah-tengah waktu penantian keputusan oleh pihak Amerika Serikat tentang evaluasi fasilitas GSP yang mereka berikan kepada para negara mitra dagang, menyatakan optimisme ITPT bisa menaikan kinerja ekspornya. API memproyeksikan pertumbuhan ekspor tekstil tahun ini dapat mencapai 7 persen.

 

Namun optimisme ini harus didukung oleh sinergitas antar pihak, seperti rangkaian para produsen dari hulu ke hilir, pendukung ITPT, dan penentu kebijakan
