The Indonesian Filament Yarn and Fiber Association (APSyFI) projects that the production volume of the upstream textile industry will grow to 1.9 million tons this year. APSyFI Secretary General Redma Gita Wirawasta said this figure grew from the production volume before the pandemic in 2019 of 1.82 million tons, with details of 630,000 tons of polyester fiber, 600,000 tons of rayon, and 590,000 tons of filament yarn. "[Production volume] will be able to return to 2019, even slightly higher, at least 5 percent than before the pandemic," said Redma, Tuesday (11/1/2022).

The risk of a spike in energy prices becomes a new year's 'gift' for manufacturing industry players. In addition to the basic electricity tariff (TDL) which is planned to increase in line with the cut in subsidies for PLN, the plan to phase out Premium and Pertalite fuel oil is also expected to raise logistics costs. From the demand side, the public is also faced with an increase in the price of non-subsidized liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) by Rp. 1,600 to Rp. 2,600 per kilogram. Secretary General of the Indonesian Olefin, Aromatic and Plastic Association (Inaplas) Fajar Budiono said that the high price of energy has encouraged business players to innovate in the production sector, such as replacing machine tools with more efficient ones.
