The textile and clothing industry in Indonesia fulfils a vital role in the country's economy. It is the largest source of manufacturing employment and in 2015 it was the second largest source of exports. The industry is involved in almost every sector of the textile supply chain  including yarn production, weaving, knitting, dyeing, printing and finishing and clothing manufacture  and there is a large man-made fibre industry. Indonesia has a very large population. This constitutes a huge and growing domestic market for the textile and clothing industry worldwide, and provides a firm foundation for the industry in Indonesia. Furthermore, the domestic market has been expanding significantly in recent years as prosperity has risen and wealth has spread, and it seems set for further growth. However, these developments have made the domestic market an attractive target for foreign suppliers.

Imports are rising strongly and the domestic market has been well supplied by cheap imports from China. Also, illegal imports appear to be a significant and growing problem. Looking ahead there are ambitious plans for further expansion of the textile and clothing industry in Indonesia. The government is encouraging foreign investment, and has set targets to increase the industry's share of global textile and clothing trade markedly by 2020. This report looks at the development of the textile and clothing industry in Indonesia, its size and structure, textile and clothing production, and production technology and machinery. The report also features: a geographical, political and economic profile; detailed analysis of the country's imports and exports; a review of government policies, investment incentives and foreign investments; an analysis of the industry's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT); and insight into Indonesia's infrastructure and human resources and how these affect the textile and clothing industry.
