Indonesian textile and apparel exports have been forecasted to decrease by 5 per cent, as compared with the estimated 2016 export value. Production costs in country’s RMG manufacturing units are also likely to increase in line with a new increase in minimum wages this year that would impact the exports value of Indonesia.

According to The Indonesian Textile Association (API), the decrease in overseas demand caused by global economic downturn is unlikely to improve until 2018.

As a result, the country’s exports are likely to witness downfall even in 2016 as the year’s target for textile and apparel exports was initially set at US $ 12.7 billion (up 3 per cent over the year before), but because overseas demand had not grown as expected, last year’s exports are estimated to decreased by 5 per cent compared to 2015 exports, and continuing the downward trend, Indonesia will not see surge in its exports worldwide in 2017 too.
