The Ministry of Industry (Ministry of Industry) targets investment in pharmaceutical and textile chemical sector by Rp130 ​​trillion in 2019. To streamline and focus on this, the Ministry of Industry will start organizing as of January 1, 2019 by changing the name of the Directorate General of Chemical, Textile and Multifarious Industries ) becoming a Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Textile Industry (IKFT)


Director General of IKTA of the Ministry of Industry, Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono explained, one of the reasons for this focus is that the investment needs of chemical industry sector are believed to be the biggest because this sector requires high technology and capital. However, the upstream sector of the chemical industry which is still dominated by imports is a challenge for the Ministry of Industry so that more investors are interested in investing in this sector.


"For upstream chemicals, there are those who are interested in investing in South Korea. However, this is still under discussion because of the weakness of our chemical industry in the upstream sector, "Sigit said


On the other hand, Sigit is optimistic that investment in the pharmaceutical sector CAN grow 7-10% next year. National Health Insurance (JKN) is suspected to be a magnet for investors to invest their capital.


"The JKN program is increasing demand in the pharmaceutical sector. So, I believe investment in this sector will still grow next year, "Sigit said.


Investors for the pharmaceutical industry are suspected to be more filled with foreign investment, which is 55%. The remaining 45% is Domestic Investment.


For the textile sector, Sigit said, there were already investors from South Korea who were interested in investing. According to him, this is because the textile sector is one of the national leading industries.


In the third quarter of 2018 alone, the textile industry was recorded to experience the most robust growth compared to other industrial sectors. Citing data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), the growth of this sector reached 10.17% compared to the same period the previous year. The growth of the textile industry is not runny because of production of 9.29% on an annual basis.


On the other hand, the growth of the chemical and pharmaceutical industries in the same period actually fell. The chemical, pharmaceutical and traditional medicine industries recorded a negative growth of 2.80% year on year.


Unlike the textile and pharmaceutical industries which experienced growth in production. In quarter III-2018, large and medium-sized chemicals and chemical products experienced a decline in production of 8.72%. The same thing is fortunate not to occur in the chemical industry and goods from micro and small-sized chemicals which have increased by 13.59% year to year.


2019, Kemenperin Bidik Investasi Sektor Tekstil dan Kimia



Kementerian  Perindustrian (Kemenperin) membidik investasi sektor industri kimia farmasi dan  tekstil sebesar Rp130 triliun pada 2019. Guna melancar dan memfokuskan hal tersebut, Kementerian Perindustrian pun akan mulai melakukan organisasi per 1 Januari 2019 dengan mengganti nama Ditjen Industri Kimia, Tekstil, dan Aneka (IKTA) menjadi Industri Kimia, Farmasi, dan Tekstil (IKFT)


Dirjen IKTA Kemenperin, Achmad Sigit Dwiwahjono memaparkan, salah satu alasan pemfokusan ini karena kebutuhan investasi dari sektor industri kimia diyakini paling besar karena sektor ini membutuhkan teknologi tinggi dan pada modal. Namun, sektor hulu industri kimia yang masih didominasi impor menjadi tantangan Kemenperin agar lebih banyak investor tertarik untuk berinvestasi di sektor ini.


“Untuk hulu kimia, sudah ada yang tertarik berinvestasi dari Korea Selatan. Namun, ini masih dalam pembicaraan karena kelemahan industri kimia kita di sektor hulu,” ungkap Sigit seperti dilansir Antara, Jumat (28/12).


Di sisi lain, Sigit optimistis investasi di sektor farmasi BISA tumbuh 7-10% tahun depan. Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (JKN) ditengarai menjadi magnet bagi investor untuk menanamkan modalnya.


“Program JKN itu meningkatkan permintaan di sektor farmasi. Makanya, saya percaya investasi di sektor ini masih akan tumbuh tahun depan,” ujar Sigit.


Adapun investor untuk industri farmasi ditengarai lebih banyak diisi oleh Penanaman Modal Asing, yakni sebesar 55%. Sisanya 45% merupakan Penanaman Modal Dalam Negeri.


Untuk sektor tekstil, Sigit menyebutkan, sudah ada investor asal Korea Selatan yang berminat untuk investasi. Menurutnya, ini karena sektor tekstil merupakan salah satu industri unggulan nasional.


Pada kuartal III-2018 saja, industri tekstil tercatat mengalami pertumbuhan paling apik dibandingkan sektor industri lainnya. Mengutip data Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS), pertumbuhan sektor ini mencapai 10,17% dibandingkan periode yang sama tahun sebelumnya. Pertumbuhan industri tekstil tak pelain karena adanya produksi sebesar 9,29% secara tahunan.


Sebaliknya, pertumbuhan industri kimia maupun farmasi pada periode yang sama justru jeblok. Industri kimia, farmasi, maupun obat tradisional tercatat tumbuh negatif 2,80% secara year on year.


Tak seperti industri tekstil dan farmasi yang mengalami pertumbuhan produksi. Pada kuartal III-2018, industri bahan kimia dan barang dari bahan kimia yang berukuran besar dan sedang memhalami penurunan produksi 8,72%. Hal yang sama untungnya tidak terjadi pada industri bahan kimia dan barang dari bahan kima yang berukuran mikro dan kecil yang mengalami peningkatan sebesar 13,59% secara year to year.
