Textile industry players estimate that the impact of weakening rupiah will not increase prices in the near future. "We will wait and see first," said Ade Sudrajat, Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association.


Ade said that there were two models of association members, for those who imported raw materials for export purposes, the exchange rate weakening conditions brought foreign exchange gains. As for entrepreneurs who target local markets, the conditions are more difficult because the products are sold in Rupiah.


"The amount is as much as 50:50," said Ade.


He said, the industry basically had anticipated the weakening of the exchange rate from a long time because there was already a signal from the US Central Bank that made the dollar return to the country. Even for an increase in US interest rates in November or December it will also be prepared to anticipate.


"Because the impact can be minimized," he said.


Even so, Ade expects the textile market conditions to continue to grow. He believes that there is still a chance that the national textile industry will grow.


Rupiah Tembus Rp15.000 per Dolar AS, Pengusaha Tekstil Belum Naikan Harga Jual



Pelaku industri tekstil memperkirakan dampak pelemahan rupiah belum akan mengerek harga juak dalam waktu dekat.


"Kami akan wait and see terlebih dahulu," kata Ade Sudrajat, Ketua Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia.


Ade menuturkan anggota asosiasi terdapat dua model, bagi yang impor bahan baku untuk tujuan ekspor maka kondisi pelemahan nilai tukar mendatangkan keuntungan selisih kurs. Sementara untuk pengusaha yang menyasar pasar lokal, kondisinya lebih sulit karena produknya dijual dalam Rupiah.


"Jumlahnya  sama banyak. 50:50," kata Ade.


Dia menuturkan, industri pada dasarnya telah mengantisipasi pelemahan nilai tukar dari jauh hari karena sudah ada sinyal dari Bank Sentral AS yang membuat dolar kembali ke negara itu. Bahkan untuk kenaikan suku bunga AS di November atau Desember nanti pihaknya juga sudah bersiap antisipasi.


"Karena sudah disiapkan dampaknya dapat diminimalisir," katanya.


Meski begitu, Ade mengharapkan kondisi pasar tekstil dapat tetap tumbuh. Dia meyakini masih terdapat peluang agar industri tekstil nasional makin besar.
