Central Java Textile Industry Increase PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, 18 September 2018

Although the export value of Central Java's textile and textile goods throughout August 2018 has decreased since July 2018, the industry is believed to be grow again.

 

The Secretary of the Central Java Indonesian Entrepreneurs Association (Apindo) Dedi Mulyadi Ali said that during January-July 2018 there was indeed a slowdown in the textile and garment industries. However, since last month, orders began to increase. He estimates that in the next two to three months, the realization of exports of textiles and textile goods from Central Java will increase significantly.

 

"From  beginning of the year to July it was rather sluggish, but now many factories are full of orders until December. The trend is indeed increasing," he said.

 

Dedi revealed that the textile-based industry continues to move towards fashion. This was marked by an increase in garment production compared to ordinary textiles. According to him, this actually benefits entrepreneurs. Because the margins that can be obtained from the garment are much higher than ordinary textiles.

 

"The product is now in focus to fashion and selling value is also high. The basic margin is thin," he said.

 

Even though it is starting to stretch again, business people in  textile industry are still careful in preparing new investments and prefer to optimize the existing production capacity. Because, even though demand from the market tends to increase, some external factors are still weighing on production costs.

 

"Entrepreneurs think how to stay afloat. Some people wait and see, some wait and worry," he said.

 

He said the rupiah exchange rate was one of the biggest challenges in terms of production costs. The reason is, most of the raw materials for textile industry are still imported.

 

Based on data released by the Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) both exports and imports for textiles and textile goods in Central Java decreased from US $ 220.86 million in July 2018 to US $ 172.53 million in August 2018. Similar to imports, textile exports and textile goods also decreased from US $ 288.95 million to US $ 266.37 million.

 

Head of BPS Statistics and Distribution Division, Central Java, Sri Herawati, said overall, textiles along with minerals and mechanical planes were the three commodities contributing to Central Java's highest import value. Import value for the three groups of commodities in August 2018 was US $ 746.59 million, US $ 172.53 million and US $ 285.71 million, respectively.

 

The total import value of Central Java in August 2018 reached US $ 1.55 billion, up 18.71% compared to imports in July 2018 worth US $ 1.3 billion.

 

Industri Tekstil Jateng Menggeliat Kembali

 

 

Kendati nilai ekspor tekstil dan barang tekstil Jawa Tengah sepanjang Agustus 2018 mengalami penurunan sejak Juli 2018, industri tersebut diyakini bakal kembali menggeliat.

 

Sekretaris Asosiasi Pengusaha Indonesia (Apindo) Jateng Dedi Mulyadi Ali mengatakan sepanjang Januari-Juli 2018 memang ada perlambatan di industri tekstil maupun garmen. Namun, sejak bulan lalu, pemesanan mulai meningkat. Dia memperkirakan dalam dua hingga tiga bulan ke depan, realisasi ekspor tekstil dan barang tekstil dari Jateng akan meningkat signifikan.

 

"Dari awal tahun sampai Juli memang agak lesu, tapi sekarang pabrik-pabrik sudah banyak yang penuh pesanannya sampai Desember. Kecenderungannya memang terus meningkat," katanya .

 

Dedi mengungkapkan industri berbasis tekstil saat ini terus bergerak ke arah fesyen. Hal itu ditandai dengan peningkatan produksi garmen dibandingkan dengan tekstil biasa. Menurutnya, hal itu justru menguntungkan para pengusaha. Pasalnya, margin yang bisa diperoleh dari garmen jauh lebih tinggi dari tekstil biasa.

 

"Produknya sekarang ke arah fesyen dan nilai jualnya juga tinggi. Yang basic margin-nya tipis," tuturnya.

 

Meskipun mulai menggeliat kembali, para pebisnis di industri tekstil masih berhati-hati dalam menyiapkan investasi baru dan lebih memilih untuk mengoptimalkan kapasitas produksi yang sudah ada. Pasalnya, kendati permintaan dari pasar cenderung meningkat, beberapa faktor eksternal masih membebani ongkos produksi.

 

"Pengusaha berpikir bagaimana agar tetap bertahan. Ada yang wait and see, ada yang wait and worry," ujarnya.

 

Dia menuturkan nilai tukar rupiah menjadi salah satu tantangan terbesar dari sisi ongkos produksi. Pasalnya, sebagian besar bahan baku untuk industri tekstil masih diimpor.

 

Berdasarkan data yang dirilis Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS) baik ekspor maupun impor untuk tekstil dan barang tekstil di Jateng mengalami penurunan dari US$220,86 juta pada Juli 2018 menjadi US$172,53 juta pada Agustus 2018. Sama halnya dengan impor, ekspor tekstil dan barang tekstil pun mengalami penurunan dari US$288,95 juta menjadi US$266,37 juta.

 

Kepala Bidang Statistik dan Distribusi BPS Jateng Sri Herawati mengatakan secara keseluruhan, tekstil bersama mineral dan pesawat mekanik menjadi tiga komoditas penyumbang nilai impor tertinggi Jateng. Nilai impor untuk ketiga kelompok komoditas ini pada Agustus 2018 masing-masing sebesar US$746,59 juta, US$172,53 juta, dan US$285,71 juta.

 

Adapun total nilai impor Jateng pada Agustus 2018 mencapai US$1,55 miliar atau naik 18,71% dibanding impor Juli 2018 senilai US$1,3 miliar.
