Automobile inner tube industry in Indonesia.

Inner tube industry is facing a sluggish growth as more cars especially passenger cars choose to use tubeless tires. As a result unlike tire casing industry, inner tube industry does not gain much from the fast expansion of car market in the country.

However, demand for inner tubes is expected to continue to scale up as growing supply is still needed for commercial cars, which have continued to dominate car market in the country. With poor condition of roads in the country inner tubes are still needed in large quantity for replacement.

Part of inner tubes are produced with natural rubber as the basic material, and some are produced from synthetic rubber or butyl tubes. The soaring prices of crude oil, have pushed up the prices of synthetic rubber, of which the basic material is oil.

The rise in the prices of synthetic rubber has brought about an increase in demand for natural rubber tires. Inner tubes from natural rubber, therefore, are more competitive facing inner tubes from synthetic rubber.

Producers and production capacity

There are 13 manufactures of tires which are members of APBI (The Indonesian Associations of Tire Producers). However there are only 8 companies of these 13 manufacturers recorded to produce automobile tubes.

The field research has revealed that of these 8 manufacturers, 2 companies are no longer active producing rubber tubes.

Therefore, the country has now only 6 companies producing rubber tubes with a total production capacity of 10.2 million units a year.

Of the six Manufacturers, two companies produce only nature ruber tubes i.e. PT Banteng Pratama and PT United King Land, one company i.e. PT Industri Karet Deli produces both natural rubber tubes and butyl rubber tubes and three companies, i.e. PT Bridgestobne, PT Gajah Tunggal and PT Elang Perdana produce only butyl tubes.

Of the six tube manufacturers, there is only one foreign investment company, PT Bridgestone Tire Indonesia with its factory located in Bekasi, West Java.

PT Ariga Mira Rubber Works in Tangerang has had no activities since 2 years ago. In the meantime, PT Mega Safe Tire Industry in Semarang is no longer producing rubber tubes, but importing tubes from Korea. PT Mega also still produces tire totalling 1.4 million units in 2004.

PT Gajah Tunggal and Bridgestone Tire Indonesia are two largest producers of rubber tubes. Both companies have a combined production capacity of 6,000,000 units a year, or about 60% of the total national production capacity. PT Industri Karet Deli in Medan has also quite a large production capacity totalling 1,800,000 units of tubes a year.

PT Gajah Tunggal (GT) is the largest producer of tubes with its production capacity of 3,600,000 units a year. This company only makes butyl tubes. The company is also the largest producer of tires in the country in term of capacity, with its annual tire production capacity of 11.1 million units of car tire and 9.2 million units of motorcycle tire. PT Gajah Tunggal, originally named NV Perusahaan Pabrik Karet "Hok Thay Hin" was established in 1951. Its name was changed in 1961 with PT Gajah Tunggal. The company currently employs some 7,700 workers. The company's car tire factory starting operation in Tangerang, Banten, in 1978, while its motorcycle tires in 1972.

Gajah Tunggal produces various types of tires including tires of motorcycles, passenger cars, light trucks, large trucks, buses and heavy duty trucks. It also produces various sizes of car tubes. The company is dominating the local market of tire and tubes. It is also quite successful in penetrating the export market and currently almost 50% of their income came from export.

Gajah Tunggal (GT) has integrated its operation with business units to produce raw materials for tires i.e. nylon tire cord, synthetic rubber or Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) and bead wires. These units are operated by its subsidiaries respectively PT Andayani Megah (nylon tire cord), Langgeng Baja Pratama (bead wire) and PT Sentra Sintetika Jaya (SBR).

The second largest producer of tires and tubes is PT Bridgestone Tire Indonesia, which has a factory in Bekasi, with an annual capacity to produce 8.57 million units of car tires and 2.4 million units of butyl tubes. The company currently employs some 3,350 workers. PT Industri Karet Deli in Medan, North Sumatra is also a major producer of automobile tubes. It has the capacity to produce 1.8 million units automobile tubes, consist of 540,000 unit of natural rubber tubes per year and 1,260,000 unit of butyl tubes per year.

Although its factory located in Sumatra, their distribution networks cover almost all major cities of Indonesia. It has also exported their products to several countries including USA, European anda Asian countries. The company is the only tire and tube manufacturer, located outside Java island and it currently employs some 3,300 workers.

PT Elang Perdana Tire Industry is a relatively new producer of car tire and tubes using Dutch technology. The company has been quite successful to penetrate the domestic and export market and presently one of key players in the tire and tube industry in Indonesia. The company operates two production units respectively in Bogor, West Java and Semarang, Central Java with a total production capacity of 1.5 million units car tires and 900 thousands car tubes. It produces only butyl tubes.

PT United King land with its factory in Tangerang produces various types of car and motorcycle tubes. The production capacity of its car tubes is 3,000 units per day or around 900,000 units a year, while its motorcycle tubes around 10,000 units a day. PT United King Land makes only natural rubber tubes.

With the installed capacity of, PT Banteng Pratama has the smallest production capacity of car tubes among the existing 6 manufacturers. It production capacity is only 600,000 unit natural rubber tube for automobile.

Located in Citeureup- Bogor,West Java, the factory formerly produced bicycle tire under production license agreement from Good Year with a daily production of 22,000 units. However in mid 1990's the production license agreement with Goodyear has been terminated. The company presently uses Mizzle brand for their tires and tubes.

Production development

The strong growth of the country's automotive industry has boosted the the production of tires and tubes. However their production growth is lower than the growth of car productions as they have to compete with imported tubes, particularly those imported from China which are sold at cheap prices.

Tire and tubes producers grouped in the Association of Tire Companies (APBI) are confronted with tough competition from illegal products and at the same time they have to deal with growing production costs due to increase price of natural rubber.

As shown by the following table, production of tubes rose from some 7.2 million units in 2000 to about 9.1 million units in 2004, or average increase of 5.8% a year. The growth in 2004, is the highest in the last five years, due to substantial growth of 31% of car production from 322 thousands units in 2003 to 422 thousands units in 2004. It should be noted however, that only a part of the new cars use tubes (about 35 %) as a large part of them use tubeless tires. New cars using tubes are mostly multipurpose family van, trucks, busses and offroad vehicles.

The following table also shows that production of automobile tubes is dominated by those used for light and medium size trucks and passanger cars particularly for multipurpose family van, like Toyota Kijang, Isuzu Panther, Suzuki Carry etc. In the meantime, light and medium trucks using tubes are mainly Isuzu, Mitsubishi trucks, Toyota Dyna and Hino.

In 2004, production of tubes for light and medium size trucks totalled 4.6 million units while for passenger cars totalled 2.9 million units. It should be noted however, that not all Toyota Kijang using tubes. Those using tubes are mainly Kijang used for public city transportation, and for replacement.

The following table shows that production of automobile tubes for passenger cars has risen steadily from only 2.5 million units in 2000, to Rp 2.8 million in 2002 and about 3.2 million units in 2004.

In terms of weight ( tons), the production has increased from 13.27 thousand tons in 2000 to 16.65 thousand tons in 2004. Light/ medium trucks and trucks dominating the production in terms of tons as indicated by the following table.

The following table shows the comparison of production of tubes in term of units to weight (tons).

The utilization of production capacity of tube manufacturers is quite high ranging from 84-95% in 2004. Gajah Tunggal for instance, produce 3,251 thousand units car tubes or about 94% of its production capacity. Banteng Pratama operates at 88% of its tube capacity, while Bridgestone 84%. The following table presents the production of car tube manufacturers.

All producers of car tubes use a mixture of natural rubber and synthetic rubbers as the raw materials for automobile tires and tubes. The ratio of consumption of natural rubber and synthetic rubber is 61.2% to 38.8% respectively.

Consumption of natural rubber for tire and tubes industry in the country totaled 153,058 tons in 2004 and consumption of synthetic rubber (SBR) was 96,769 tons.

In 2004, the largest consumer of natural rubber was PT Gajah Tunggal which used 55,341 tons of that material that year or 36% of the total consumption in the country. The second largest consumer was PT Bridgestone using 32,547 tons or 21 % of the total consumption of natural rubber by members of APBI.

The total consumption of SBR by APBI members was 96,769 tons in 2004. The largest consumer was PT Gajah Tunggal accounting for 34% or 32,922 tons of the total consumption, followed by Bridgestone Indonesia, accounting for 27.4% or 26,465 tons of the total consumption.

In addtion from PT Sentra Sintetika Jaya (SBR), the supply of SBR also comes from imports. PT Bridgestone, for instance, gets the supply of SBR from Japan, India, Cina and Thailand. Although it has subsidiary producing SBR, Gajah Tunggal also import synthetic rubber from Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Rusia and Canada. PT Industri Karet Deli gets the supply of SBR particularly from PT Sentra Sintetika Jaya.

Import of Automobile rubber tubes (butyl and natural rubber)

Import of car, OTR and industrial tubes is not so large compared with the local production. In 2004, import totalled 4.8 thousand tons, much smaller than the production which is about 16.6 thousand tons in 2004.

The import statistics classified tubes import into five classification including one category of bicycle tube import. This study however, only covers import of automobile, OTR and industry vehicles.

In terms of weight, the largest type imported are tubes for trucks and busses (49 %) and other vehicle (50%). In this latest category include tubes for heavy and industrial equipment.

In term of units, import of car tubes rose from 1,083 thousand units in 2000 to some 1,584 thousand units in 2004. In the first semester of 2005, the import is estimated at about 840 thousand units.

China was the largest supplier of tubes imports form that country totaled US$ 1.7 million in 2004, followed by South Korea (US$ 897 thousands).

Some of the tubes imported from China are sold at prices as cheap as 30% lower than the price of local products giving rise to suspicion that they have been imported illegally.

APBI said the local content of Chinese products of tire is more or less the same the local content of Indonesian products. Information from Indonesian tire producers in China said production cost of tires in China is higher than in Indonesia. APBI, therefore, suspects irregularities in the process of import such as under invoicing and under valuing.

Exports

Domestic industry has been able to penetrate the export market both for tires and tubes. The major tube manufacturers have exported some of their tubes particularly to Middle East countries, African countries, other Asian countries and also some European countries. Major companies like Gajah Tunggal, Bridgestone dan Industri Karet Deli has marketing office in various countries which are their export target market. Gajah Tunggal, for instance, has exported their products (tires and tubes) to some 70 countries. All producers exported only butyl tubes.

In terms of units export has increased from some 1.1 million units in 2000 to about 1.28 million units in 2005 (June).

Market Size

The market size or consumption of automobile tubes is estimated from local production plus import minus exports with stock assumed to stand at the same level at the start and end of a year. A factory normally holds stocks for 1-2 month sales.

DEMAND ANALYSIS

Estimated demand by different market segment

Like tires, the market of tubes is devided into two market segments i.e. OEM market and replacement market. Both segments have their own characteristics and requirement.

Demand by OEM market is strongly influenced by development of automotive industry, particularly cars which are using tubes. The following table indicates that the car indusry is dominated by passenger cars of MPV and SUV types, accounting for 34% of the total production in 2004. Small/ medium trucks ranked the second with 24% share. Car production has increased strongly in the last five years from only about 279 thousands in 2001 to about 450 thousands in 2005.

Based on the above production, demand for tubes can be calculated by using the following assumptions:

* Only 25% of passanger cars using tubes

* One passanger car use 4 tubes

* One medium truck use 6 tubes

* One truck use 10 tubes

* One heavy/off road tgruc use 10 tubes

Using the above assumption, demand for automobile tubes is estimated as follows:

Demand for replacement market is the total domestic market size influenced by the total populations of cars. Statistics of BPS and the State Police indicates that the population of passenger cars was around 3.89 million units in 2004, while truck 2.0 million units and bus 798 thousand units.

Total demand for rubber tube increased in the last five years. The replacement market dominated by more than 80% of the total market.

MARKET PROJECTIONS

The domestic demand for tubes is projected to increase from 9.1 million units in 2006 to 11.1 million units in 2010, as presented by the following table.

Notes:

* Average growth in five years is 4.2% a year. The local market is projected to grow 5% a year over the next five years.

* The existing production capacity is 10.2 million pcs with 89% utilization rate.

* In 2010, the domestic market is projected to consume 11.1 million pcs tubes, of which the country need additional capacity to produce 1.2 million tubes a year. The average utilization rate in 2010 is estimated at 80%.

* At present, local tubes have been exported at a volume of about 2.3 million pcs in 2004. To meet the increasing export volume, additional capacity is estimated to be larger than 1.2 ;million pcs a year.

Conclusion and recommendations

* The growth of tube consumption is relatively stable. The market growth is expected to be around 4-5% a year over the next five years.

* Despite relatively low growth, the future of tube industry is quite prospective as indicated by high utilization rate of 89% of the industry production capacity. Therefore there is opportunity to increase the existing capacity by around 1.2 million units to meet the increasing domestic demand over the next five yeas. The capacity expansion will be larger if we considered the increasing demand in the export market.

* Car transportation is presently the main mode of land transportation in Indonesia. This situation is expected to remain over the next five years, therefore, demand for tubes and tires is expected to keep increasing.

* The use of car tubes are increasing particularly for commercial cars, because many passanger cars are now tubeless. However, in replacement market, there are also passanger cars using tubes.

* The main market for passanger cars are replacement market segment. Because in Indonesia cars with more than 10 years old are found many on the street. Many old passanger cars which are previously use tubeless, also replace their tires with tubes.

* The competition is getting stronger as the market demand is expected to increase only by 4-5% a year over the next five years. Strong competition will come primarily from cheap tubes from China. Major players like Bridgestone and Gajah Tunggal will be likely kept their strong position in the market because of their high quality products and wide distribution networks. They will be able to compete with China although their price higher.

* Because of strong competition, the profit margin of tube companies will be lower, because they have to compete in price with cheap products like those from imported from China.

* In low end market segment, the competition lies in price. Therefore companies which can reduce production cost and offer lower price of will win in the market.

* In medium and high end market, the competition exist in the ability of companies to reach cost effective. If the quality of tubes make them long lasting, the customers will choose these products even the price is higher. This applies to Bridgestone which position their products in high end market. In the meantime, Gajah Tunggal positions their products in medium end market. Their price is lower than Bridgestone. Gajah Tunggal controls 36% of the market, Bridgestone 25% and the rest for low-end market. Karet Deli is the major player in the low end market.

* For the new comers planing to enter the market, they should first decide which market segment they wish to enter. The competition is strong in each segment. Access to wide distribution networks, low production cost are two key success factors of new comers.
