In the heart of Indonesia
A revolution is underway within the realm of furniture manufacturing. The nation, renowned for its rich cultural heritage and exquisite craftsmanship, is poised to nearly double its revenue from furniture and handicraft exports. The ambitious goal set by the Indonesian government, aiming to reach a staggering US$5 billion by the end of 2024, highlights the nation’s commitment to becoming a global industry leader.
At the Indonesia International Furniture Expo (IFEX) 2023
A significant milestone occurred on March 12th. During this event, the synergy between furniture makers and the Indonesian government painted a promising picture for the nation’s furniture industry. The consensus was clear: Indonesia possesses the potential to lead the global furniture market. However, this potential can only be fully realized with a stable and abundant supply of raw materials.
One of the primary challenges facing the industry lies in adhering to stringent
Requirements set forth by major export destinations, including European Union (EU) countries. Certifications such as Forest Law Enforcement, Governance, and Trade (FLEGT) are essential, especially for nations like the Netherlands and Germany, which are pivotal export partners for Indonesian furniture. To meet these standards, Indonesia has established its own Timber Legality and Assurance System (SVLK) as mandated by national law. This system ensures the legality and sustainability of raw materials used in furniture production.
In response to these challenges, the Indonesian government is diligently working to align EU and Indonesian standards concerning the legality and sustainability of raw materials. To secure the consistent supply of raw materials, the Ministry of Industry in Indonesia has taken significant steps. Wood and rattan commodities will be included in the National Commodity Balance System, a comprehensive database that tracks supply, production, industrial raw material requirements, and consumption nationally over specific periods.
Director General (Dirjen) of Agro Industry at the Ministry of Industry, Putu Juli Ardika, emphasized the government’s unwavering support for the furniture industry. Speaking at IFEX in Jakarta, he reaffirmed the government’s dedication, stating, “Industry players are targeting exports to reach 5 billion US dollars. To meet this target, the government continues to provide serious support to the furniture industry.”
This support is pivotal, especially when considering the optimistic sentiments echoed by industry leaders. Abdul Sobur, Chairperson of the Presidium of the Indonesian Furniture and Craft Association (HIMKI), expressed confidence in the national furniture industry’s performance. According to Mordor Intelligence analysis, Indonesia’s furniture industry is poised to expand at an impressive Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7% from 2022 to 2028.
