Indonesia Basketware Industry Overview Supplier Exports

Competitive advantages

Domestic availability of raw materials is one of the major advantages of Indonesia’s basketware industry.

Indonesia is one of the top producers of rattan, accounting for 70 to 80 percent of global supply. About 300 species, including croco, sega, kubu gray, lacak and manau, can be found in the country.

The country is also home to about 2 million hectares of bamboo forest, where more than 100 species can be found. Bali, Central Java, East Java, West Java and Yogyakarta are the main areas where bamboo can be obtained.

The government also has initiatives that help the industry. For one, Indonesia has an existing ban on the export of raw rattan.

To encourage the growth of small and medium enterprises (SMEs), the government lowered the annual income tax rate for these companies to 0.5 percent, effective July 2018, according to a June 23, 2018, report on Jakarta Globe. Antara News reported March 17, 2018, that under Government Regulation No. 46 of 2013, SMEs with an annual turnover threshold of 4.8 billion Indonesian rupiah (about $333,000) were subject to pay tax rate of 1 percent.

In April 2018, the Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises Ministry, the Communications and Information Ministry and the Creative Economy Agency, in cooperation with online platforms such as Lazada and Shopee, launched a national campaign to help SMEs build an online presence and increase their profit, The Jakarta Post reported April 24, 2018. Through this initiative, called Ayo UMKM Jualan Online (Let SMEs Sell Online), the government aims to have 8 million SMEs online by 2020.

The industry also benefits from a long history of basketmaking. Basket-weaving communities can be found across the country, with weavers using skills that have been passed down from many generations.

In Kalimantan, the women of the Dayak tribe produce baskets that are used for one task. Among their creations are the ragak sedang, which is used for washing vegetables, and the cupai for collecting vegetables and fruits.

Challenges

Rising labor and raw material costs are among the main challenges facing the industry due to their impact on price competitiveness and profitability.

In November 2017, the government mandated an increase of more than 8 percent on regional minimum wages, effective January 2018. Jakarta, for instance, raised the provincial rate to about 3.6 million rupiah per month ($265) from 3.3 million rupiah ($244) in 2017, The Jakarta Post reported Nov. 1, 2017.

The rising cost of raw rattan is another major concern. Rates have risen due to a shortage of the material even with the ban on raw rattan exports still in place. Per-kilo cost of rattan sticks rose to 12,000 rupiah ($0.89) in October 2017 from 7,000 rupiah ($0.52), according to an Oct. 5, 2017, article on Detik Finance.

Suppliers are trying to keep the prices steady despite increasing production cost to attract new clients and retain existing buyers. Among companies planning to raise their quotes, most will be capping adjustments at 5 percent.

To counter the rattan shortage issues, many suppliers are combining rattan with other materials such as wood or bamboo. Others are turning to pandan, water hyacinth and other environment-friendly materials as alternatives to offer to their customers.

Some suppliers have started using synthetic rattan to avoid raising prices. This has prompted some suppliers of natural rattan basketware to complain about the rising number of synthetic rattan products eating up a portion of their sales.

Other basketware suppliers are boosting sales in other product lines, which use less costly materials and can provide better margins. These are mainly companies also offering home decor and furniture.

Industry composition

The sector consists mostly of small and midsize companies. Small basketware producers have up to 20 workers. These roll out 2,500 pieces monthly and have yearly revenues of up to $100,000.

Midsize companies can produce more than 4,000 pieces each month and earn $100,000 annually. They have up to 50 workers.

Large manufacturers can have more than 150 employees. Capable of producing 10,000 pieces each month, their annual sales can exceed $1 million.

Basketware suppliers can be found in Indonesia’s various provinces. Basketware makers featured in this report are based in the provinces of West Java, Central Java, East Java, Bali and Yogyakarta.

  • Rattan, mendong, pandan and water hyacinth are among the main materials used.

  • Novelty designs are offered alongside basic models.

  • Baskets in pastel shades and bold colors are available.

  • Most production processes are typically done in-house.

  • Weaving and other steps are accomplished using hand tools.

  • Quality control involves raw material inspection of the raw materials and checking if the weaving, color and other specifications conform to client requirements.

  • Models are priced based mainly on material and size.

  • Models priced more than $10 have extra features such as lids and handles.

  • Products offered for more than $20 typically come in larger sizes or sets.

Materials & designs

Indonesia basketware makers offer laundry and picnic hampers, wine holders, plant bins and multipurpose baskets.

Among natural inputs, rattan, mendong, pandan, water hyacinth, banana leaf and vetiver are some of the most commonly used in basketware. For synthetics, makers turn to PE or PP.

Rattan types used in basketware include kubu gray, manau, lacak, croco and sega, which can be found in Kalimantan, and the islands of Sulawesi and Sumatra. Mendong, banana bark and vetiver are mostly sourced form Java, while bamboo is typically from Bali or Java. Water hyacinth is available in Java and the country’s other major islands.

Designs range from regular geometric shapes to animal, bicycle, holiday-themed and other novelty forms. Models in the natural color of rattan are mostly offered, but black, white, red, green and pastel shades are also available. Lace, tassels and ribbons are the common accents incorporated in storage baskets.

Manufacturing & QC

Suppliers typically complete the entire production process in-house, outsourcing only when orders exceed capacity. Weaving and other steps are accomplished using hand tools.

Knives, splitters and hammers are the main tools used. Knives are used to cut the raw material from the base, while splitters divide the material into strips. Hammers or mallets are employed to ensure that the final product is compact.

The initial steps include cleaning and drying the raw materials, which may take up to one week. Once dried, the plant is cut into strips, dyed and prepared for weaving.

Baskets are constructed from the bottom up, with the base made using strips of the chosen material or wood. Large models require the use of frames. Strips are woven into the frame and the rim of the basket is secured with a strip of rattan cane, bamboo or wood. The finish is usually applied once the basket has been completed.

Quality control commonly involves inspection of the raw materials and checking if the weaving, color and other specifications conform to client requirements.

Pricing

Models are priced based mainly on the type of material used and the size. Features such as handles, lids and lining push up quotes.

Export pricesExport sales & marketsProduct trendsChallenges
  • Majority of basketware suppliers intend to keep prices the same in the next six months.

  • Most suppliers raising quotes will be capping increases at 5 percent.

  • The rising cost of raw materials is the main reason for projected price increases.


  • Most interviewed suppliers are optimistic export sales will increase.

  • The EU is the industry’s key market in coming months.

  • Several suppliers plan to boost exports to the Asia-Pacific, North America and the Middle East.

  • Companies are offering more color options in an effort to boost sales.

  • Designs made of eco-friendly materials will remain popular.

  • Suppliers will continue to produce traditional basketware.

  • Suppliers are having difficulty coping with rising labor costs in 2018.

  • Entering new markets is difficult due to competition and the costs involved.

  • Rising raw material costs and design piracy are other concerns.

Export prices

Of the 17 suppliers that answered the question on export prices, 65 percent will be keeping quotes at current levels for the next six months to stay competitive. Some intend to adopt less expensive alternatives to rattan such as water hyacinth and wastepaper to avoid raising prices. These companies noted, however, that they need time to introduce these new materials to clients and get sales.

The rest of the respondents are planning to raise quotes to cover higher raw material costs. Among them, 80 percent will keep adjustments within 5 percent, and the remainder see price increases ranging from 6 to 10 percent.

Indonesia Basketware Survey Export Prices

Export sales & markets

Most suppliers see export sales gradually rising in the next 12 months, following efforts to promote products during trade shows. Among surveyed companies, 29 percent are anticipating growth to reach between 11 and 20 percent, while 12 percent are projecting increases of over 20 percent. Another 12 percent are expecting a jump of up to 10 percent, and 35 percent see overseas sales remaining flat year over year.

Only 12 percent of surveyed companies expect export sales to decline. These suppliers see orders decreasing once they have raised their prices to cover higher raw material costs.

Wary of the US’ increased protectionist measures, 41 percent of enterprises will focus their efforts on boosting exports to the EU. Thirty-five percent intend to strengthen their presence in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly Singapore and Malaysia, because the proximity of these markets also means lower logistics expenses. Japan and South Korea, which are already among Indonesia’s top trading partners, are also target destinations.

The rest of the respondents will be focusing on North America and the Middle East. These are mainly companies that have already established relationships with buyers from these countries. For them, it will be easier for them to expand their sales in existing markets rather than look for new ones.

Indonesia basketware Supplier Survey Export Forecast

Suppliers will be offering basketware in more colors as part of efforts to boost sales. Pastels and bold hues, in particular, are expected to be seen across various types of basketware. Nonetheless, finishes that highlight the natural color of the material will remain popular.

To counter the rising cost of rattan, suppliers are combining this material with water hyacinth, banana bark and other less expensive, environment-friendly materials in their products.

Design-wise, traditional shapes with few embellishments will remain predominant since these are generally easier and less costly to produce.

Challenges

Many companies consider rising labor costs as the main challenge facing the industry due to the effect on margins and prices. Minimum wages in 2018 are up more than 8 percent compared to 2017.

Increases in raw material costs are putting additional pressure on prices and margins. Rates for rattan, for instance, have also gone up, according to interviewed suppliers.

Due to stiff competition with other local producers, companies cannot easily raise prices to cover higher expenses. Some opt to absorb cost increases and reduce margins to retain and attract new clients. Others are turning to alternative materials to keep prices steady.

Indonesia basketware Supplier Survey Key Findings

Preventing design piracy is also a challenge for some companies. Acquiring design patents involve submitting documents that are costly and time-consuming to prepare.
