Development of cable industry in Indonesia.


The country's cable industry was badly hit by the 1998 crisis. Until 2004, utilization utilization,

  • The Brisk yeshivas and methods, a school of Jewish thought originated by the Soloveitchik family of Brest.
 developments in the power sector and growing exports have also boosted the industry lately.

The fast growing demand for electricity has forced the government to launch am ambitious plan called crash program to build coal fired power plants with a total capacity of 10,000 megawatts to be completed in 2010-2011. The program is to be followed with a second phase with the same capacity. The first program is in progress pushing up demand for electric cable.

Electric cables consist of different types by voltage High Voltage The term high voltage characterizes electrical circuits, in which the voltage used is the cause of particular safety concerns and insulation requirements. High voltage is used in electrical power distribution, in cathode ray tubes, to generate X-rays and particle beams, to  (HV), Medium Voltage (MV), and Low voltage Low voltage is an electrical engineering term that broadly identifies safety considerations of an electricity supply system based on the voltage used. While different definitions exist for the exact voltage range covered by "low voltage", the most commonly used ones include "mains .

Starting 1992, SII was changed with Indonesia National Standard (SNI) base don a decision of the Industry and Trade Minister.

Cable producers and production capacity

After the 1998 crisis, there was almost no addition in the number of cable factories and installed capacity. The member of the association of cable producers (APKABEL), which groups almost all cable factories in the country did not change much. In 1997, there were 35 members of the association and 2006, the number slightly declined to 34 companies.

Base don official data at the industry ministry, among 48 registered cable factories in 2005, only 33 were in operation.

* 1997 = 35 companies

* 2000 = 35 companies

* 2002 = 36 companies

* 2005 = 33 companies

* 2006 = 34 companies

Most cable factories date back to year before the 1998 crisis. Low demand caused factories to operate much below their production capacity. Increase began only in 2005 to peak in 2007. New investment began in cable industry that year including for capacity expansion. A Malaysian company, PT Wonderful Wire and Cable, built a factory in Medan. Another foreign company PT Prysman invested for capacity expansion.

Currently there are 15 major cable makers in Indonesia. Most of them are old companies like PT Tranka Kabel that came on line in 1952.

PT Sumi Indo Kabel Tbk TBK - Tool Builder Kit  (Perusahaan) was established on 23 July July: see month.  1981, with the name of PT Industri Kawat Indonesia. The name of the company was changed with PT IKI IKI Internet-Käyttäjät Ikuisesti (Finnish: Internet Users Forever)

 crash program in the electricity sector pushing up demand for electric cables. Demand also rose in export market notable in Middle East where the construction sector was brisk amid the soaring oil prices. Strong demand in 2007 resulted in an increase in capacity utilization of the country's cable industry to 65%-70%.

The capacity utilization was expected to scale up further in 2008 to around 90% of the total installed capacity of 445,090 ton, if the crash program in the electric sector ran as expected.

A faster growth was recorded in the production of electric cable to follow the brisk development in the electric sector.

Cable exports up

The slump Slump

A temporary fall in performance, often describing consistently falling security prices for several weeks or months.
 on the domestic market in the wake of the monetary crisis of 1997/1998, forced cable makers in the country to seek to boost exports to offset a decline in sales on the domestic market. Exports, therefore, began to rise in 2000 and the trend continued until 2007. In 2004, exports totaled 66,600 tons valued at US$ 287 million, up to 111,600 tons valued at US$ 917 million in 2007 or an increase of 20% a year.

 of on the domestic market. In 2007, sales on the domestic market made up 84% of its total sales with exports making up only 16%. In the first half of 2008, its exports rose in contribution to 25%. Its export markets have expanded to South America South America, fourth largest continent (1991 est. pop. 299,150,000), c.6,880,000 sq mi (17,819,000 sq km), the southern of the two continents of the Western Hemisphere. , Africa and Europe Europe (yr`əp), 6th largest continent, c.4,000,000 sq mi (10,360,000 sq km) including adjacent islands (1992 est. pop. 512,000,000). .

PT KMI said demand for cables have increased in Middle East in the past two years especially before the financial crisis in 2008. Large property projects and construction of new cities pushed up demand for cables especially electric cables.

In 2007 and 2008, around 70%-75% of exports by PT KMI were to Middle East. Other export regions accounted for the remaining 25%-30% of its exports. Growing exports have boosted production by the company prompting prompting

PT Supreme Cable Manufacturing & Commerce Tbk recorded sales valued at Rp 2.3 trillion. That year its exports were valued at Rp537.6 billion or an increase of 413.45% from Rp104.7 billion in 2006. Middle East is its largest buyer.

Other cable makers such as PT Voksel Electric Tbk also increased exports. Voksel exported cables valued at US$3 million to Middle East in 2007.

Indonesia exports various types of cable. The largest in volume is electric cable with voltage of more than 1000V (HS. 8544.60.000) totaling 33,000 tons in 2007 and telecommunications Communicating information, including data, text, pictures, voice and video over long distance. See communications.  cable (HS 8544.49.39000 totaling 25,200 tons.

The largest exports in value were wiring harnesses for motor vehicles (HS 8544.30.1000) valued at US$ 338 million in 2007.


While exporting, the country also imports cables. Imports have increased in the past four years in line with the growing demand in the country. Imported cables are mainly fiber optics fiber optics, transmission of digitized messages or information by light pulses along hair-thin glass fibers. Each fiber is surrounded by a cladding having a high index of refractance so that the light is internally reflected and travels the length of the fiber  and industrial cables

In 2004, imports of cable reached 20,772 tons valued at US$ 83,428,000 up to 50,003 tons valued at US$ 222,186,000.

Consumption growing

A fast growth has been recorded in the country's consumption of cables in the past four years peaking in 2007. In 2004, consumption totaled 65,400 tons, up to 227,700 tons in 2007 or a three fold increase from the previous year.

The increase in consumption in 2007 came with the launching of the government's crash program in the electricity sector. Under the first crash program state electricity company PLN is to build coal-fired power plants with a total capacity of 10,000 megawatts. Outside the program a number of power plants have been built in Java Java (jä`və), island (1990 pop. 107,525,520), c.51,000 sq mi (132,090 sq km), Indonesia, S of Borneo, from which it is separated by the Java Sea, and SE of Sumatra across Sunda Strait.  and other regions to cope with shortage in power supply.

In 2008, consumption continued to scale up as indicated by growing production and sales until the first half of that year.

 of many construction projects. In addition, rising prices of copper resulted in higher prices of cables.

The condition, however, is expected to improve in the coming years especially in the country as the government continues the crash program in the electricity sector.

Cable prices down 5%

A decline in the prices of basic materials like copper and aluminum in international market, brought about a decline in the price of cables by the end of 2008. The price of copper in March 2008 hit the level of US$8,680 per ton, but by the end of that year the price sank to US$ 6,000 per ton.

The price of aluminum also dropped from US$ 3,200 per ton to US$ 2,100 per ton. As a result the prices of cable were estimated to fall by 5%-6%.

A cable producer said if it already cut its selling price of its cables by 5% since last September September: see month.  as the price of cables in the country depends much on the prices of copper and aluminum.

Prospects of Cable Industry

The domestic demand for power is forecast to grow more than 9% annually in the next 10 years. Meanwhile, the government hopes to be able to meet 95% of household power requirement in 2018, up from 60.8% in 2007.

Currently PLN's supplying capacity still falls short of the requirement, marked by the frequent crisis in power supply in various areas.

The government has launched a crash program to be carried out by PLN in the electricity sector to cope with growing shortage in power supply in Java and other regions. Under the crash program PLN is building coal-fired power plants with a total capacity of 10,000 megawatts to be completed in 2010-2011.

The projects to be built include 10 units of power generating plants with a total capacity of 6,900 MW in Java and 25 power generating plants with a capacity of 3,100 MW outside Java to start in mid 2006.

The program is now in progress starting 2006. Currently completion is about 60%. The project will need large supply of electric cables both for transmission network and distribution systems.

Procurement of cables for transmission network include Rp1.2 trillion in Java, Rp1.3 trillion for the southern Sumatra Sumatra (smä`trə), island (1990 pop. 36,471,731), c.183,000 sq mi (473,970 sq km), Indonesia, in the Indian Ocean along the equator, S and W of the Malay Peninsula (from which it  system, Rp2.4 trillion for the West Nusa Tenggara West Nusa Tenggara (Indonesian: Nusa Tenggara Barat) is a province in south-central Indonesia.

 plants to account for 60% and gas fired power plants for 14%.

Investment needed for the second phase is around US$ 17.3 billion including US$ 15 billion for power plants and the rest for transmission and distribution systems.

Demand for electric cables, therefore, will remain strong in the coming several years though slowdown is expected in 2009 as a result of the global financial crisis. In 2010, the electric cables demand is predicted to grow again not only in the country but also in export market such as in Middle East.

With production capacity at around 450,000 tons per year at present, more investment will be needed to build new factories or expand the capacity in the next five years.


* In the past five years, the country's electric cables industry has expanded fast and recovered form the 1998 monetary crisis. In 2008, cable production was estimated to reach 85% of the country's production capacity or 378,000 tons.

* The increase in production has been boosted by growing demand especially from PLN's project of 10,000 MW coal-fired power generating plants. Consumption of electric cables in 2007 rose to 227,000 tons in 2007 and to 295,000 tons in 2008.

* Indonesia has also succeeded in expanding market abroad. In the past five years exports surged from 66,000 tons in 2004 to 111,000 tons in 2007. The largest market has been Middle East, but the main buyer of automotive cables is Japan to which exports have also increased from year to year.

* Until mid 2008, demand for cables on the domestic and international markets continued to increase, but toward the end of that year there was a slowdown. Many large property projects abroad including in Middle East were shelved on funding problem. Demand for electric cables, therefore, declined.

* However, the market is expected to be normal again in 2010. Construction of property projects in the country and in Middle East is expected to brisk again.

* Based on the trend in the past four years and taking into account the impact of the global financial crisis, demand fro a cable in 2009 is forecast to rise only slightly from 295,000 tons in 2008 to 310,000 tons. Stronger demand is expected in 2010 and by 2012, domestic consumption of cables is forecast to reach 513,000 tons. Additional capacity of the country's cable industry will be needed to meet the requirement that year.
