  • Indonesia is the first country to issue FLEGT licenses that facilitate exports to the EU.


  • Price competition is among the major challenges facing the industry.

  • Rising material and labor costs are making it difficult for some suppliers to compete on price.

  • Obtaining certificates of compliance is costly for many suppliers.


  • Most makers in the industry operate on a small scale.

  • Wicker furniture makers are based in Central Java and West Java.

  • Small makers produce up to 2,000 pieces monthly.

Furniture is considered to be one of the top 30 exports of Indonesia. Overseas sales, however, are declining.

In 2016, Indonesia exported $1.6 billion worth of furniture, down more than percent from the previous year, according to statistics from the Ministry of Industry’s website. Overseas sales of rattan and bamboo types, in particular, slid about 7 percent year over year to $109.4 million.

Statistics from the DESA/UNSD, United Nations Comtrade database show furniture exports made of rattan, bamboo, cane and similar materials amounted to $115.8 million in 2016. Covering products exported under HS codes 940151, 940159, 940381 and 940389, the value represents a year-over-year drop of 11 percent.

Despite the decline in export sales, Indonesia remains one of the top exporters of the products.

Indonesia Wicker furniture Industry Overview Exports

In 2016, the country was the top exporter of seats in bamboo and rattan, having sent overseas $56.4 million worth. Exports of other furniture pieces in the same materials amounted to $24.6 million, putting the country second only to China. The top five markets of the two categories were the US, Japan, the UK, Germany and the Netherlands.

Seats in cane, osier and similar materials generated $15.8 million in export sales, with the main markets being Germany, the US, Denmark, the Netherlands and Australia. Overseas sales of other types of furniture in these materials amounted to nearly $19.0 million, with the US, Italy, the Netherlands, Australia and South Korea being the top importers.

Indonesia ranked no. 1 in terms of the value of seats in cane, osier and similar materials that were sent overseas. For other types of furniture in the same materials, the country ranked no. 12.

Among the companies featured in this report, the outlook on exports for the next 12 months is optimistic. Many are keen on boosting sales to the EU. Several suppliers plan on entering or strengthening their foothold in the Asia-Pacific region, especially in Maldives, Nepal and other countries with growing tourism industries.

Competitive advantages

One of the factors keeping Indonesia at the top in terms of the wicker furniture exports is the abundant domestic supply of materials.

The country accounts for about 80 percent of the world’s supply of rattan, which is among the main inputs in wicker furniture. Kalimantan, Nusa Tenggara, Papua, Maluku and the islands of Sumatra, Sulawesi and Java are the among main sources of the material.

To ensure that domestic industries have enough supply of this input, Indonesia bans the export of raw rattan.

To assure that Indonesia products use legally harvested wood, the government established Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu (SVLK), the national timber legality assurance system. In 2016, Indonesia became the first to issue Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) licenses to facilitate exportation to the EU.

Additionally, government and trade associations provide exporters marketing support through trade shows that feature furniture. Among these are Trade Expo Indonesia, the Indonesia International Furniture Expo (IFEX), which in 2017 featured over 500 companies and attracted more than 11,000 buyers. IFEX is hosted by the Indonesian Furniture and Craft Industry Association (HIMKI) and organized by Dyandra Promosindo.

Challenges

Price competition with suppliers in Vietnam, Malaysia and other neighboring production hubs is the main challenge for Indonesia’s wicker furniture industry.

Rising raw material and labor costs are making it more difficult for Indonesia furniture makers to compete on price. Rates of raw rattan (asalan), for example, went up from 7,000 to 12,000 Indonesian rupiah per kilogram within 2017.

Labor costs are also on an upward trend. Labor costs are also on an upward trend. Minimum wages this year in various parts of Indonesia are about 9 percent higher than they were in 2017.

Obtaining certification that facilitate exports to certain markets and attract buyers is also difficult for many companies, primarily due to the cost involved. For an SVLK certification, suppliers have to spend about 40 to 80 million rupiah (about $3,000 to $6,003), which is a significant expense for small and midsize operations, according to interviewed companies. To address this concern, smaller companies have tied up with larger companies to receive an SVLK certificate.

To address this concern, some local governments are prepared to give subsidies to SMEs, according to an August 2016 report by The Jakarta Post, which cited Director General of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dody Edward. Regional governments were also advised to organize SMEs to apply for a group certification so that the cost can be shared.

Industry composition

HIMKI’s members consist of more than 5,000 furniture and handicraft suppliers, according to an Aug. 16, 2016, news report citing Vice Chairman Abdul Sobur.

Small and midsize operations account for the majority of wicker furniture producers.

With 20 or fewer workers, small companies produce fewer than 2,000 pieces per month in facilities that occupy less than 1,000sqm. These suppliers generate export sales of up to $10,000 annually.

Midsize makers record up to $100,000 in annual sales. They employ up to 100 people and produce about 5,000 pieces monthly. Their factories are usually 1,000 to 3,000sqm.

Suppliers with larger workforces and factories produce 10,000 pieces per month. Annual sales of these companies can reach $1 million.

Java is considered the manufacturing hub for furniture and wickerwork. Interviewed wicker furniture suppliers, in particular, are based in Central Java and West Java.

Materials & designs

Indonesia’s wicker furniture selection comprises models made of natural and synthetic rattan, bamboo, banana leaves and water hyacinth. Makers usually source their requirements domestically.

Natural rattan is procured in Kalimantan, Papua, Maluku, Nusa Tenggara and the islands of Sumatra, Sulawesi and Java. Banana leaves are obtained from Java, Kalimantan, Sumatra and Sulawesi, while water hyacinth is from Java. Bamboo can be found in almost every island, particularly Bali, Java and Sumatera.

For the frame or base, suppliers adopt wood such as teak and mahogany. These types of timber are typically found in Bojonegoro Regency in East Java, and Blora and Jepara in Central Java.

Aluminum is also used. Makers usually procure this from Jakarta, East Java and Banten.

For outdoor furniture, synthetic rattan made from PE or PVC are commonly adopted. Suppliers source these from West Java and Central Java.

In upcoming releases, water hyacinth is anticipated to be a popular material.

In terms of design, product offerings range from traditional to modern designs with simple structures.

As living spaces become smaller, product development at most companies leans toward space-saving structures. Releases in line with this trend have simple designs with clean outlines that highlight the natural color of the wood. Hanging chairs and other pieces that save floor space are growing popular as well.

Multifunction models are also being created. These designs feature various attachments or foldable parts that allow them to be used in various ways. Chairs fitted with attached tables and drawers are examples of these products.

Many furniture companies have no more than six designers. Suppliers release to two to eight new models monthly.

Manufacturing & QC

Cutting, coloring and drying are among the steps typically done in-house. Weaving, shaping, painting and polishing are usually subcontracted.

Production begins with the rattan stems, which are cut, sorted and dried for several days. Larger stems are used to create the frame or base of the furniture, and the rest are used for the wicker parts. Weaving of the rattan strips is typically done by hand.

The item is then varnished or painted before quality inspection.

Quality control is conducted by a team of up to five members. Finished pieces are checked against client specifications and market requirements.

Production can take up to 75 days after the confirmation of the order, depending on the client’s specifications, the country where it is to be exported and other factors. Makers often require an MOQ of one TEU or FEU.

Pricing

Wicker furniture prices are based mainly on the material, size and design intricacy of the piece.

In bedroom furniture, for instance, cabinets with rattan wicker parts on a rattan cane or mahogany base are priced less than $40. The selection between $40 and $60 have up to four drawers. Higher up the price ladder are versions with a mahogany base and extra shelves.

Among dining chairs, armless types sold for less than $35 are typically in natural or synthetic rattan with a rattan cane frame. Chairs with wicker parts in rattan, seagrass, abaca and other types of fiber on an aluminum or rattan cane frame can reach $50. Versions with a mahogany frame are priced higher.

Two-seater sofas with a rattan cane base are available for less than $250. More expensive designs include three-seaters with rattan cane or aluminum frames. Models exceeding $450 are usually three-seaters or sofa sets with a teak or aluminum base.

For outdoor chaise lounges, options below $300 include aluminum-framed models with no cushions. Between $300 and $500, designs with wrought iron frames and cushions are available. Extra storage will push models higher up the price ladder.

Export markets & sales

Survey results indicate that most wicker furniture suppliers are cautiously optimistic about exports in the next 12 months. Of the 20 companies that answered the question on export sales, 37 percent are projecting increases of up to 10 percent and 10 percent are expecting higher growth. These suppliers are anticipating that their increased social media presence and trade show participation will attract new clients.

Another 37 percent of the surveyed enterprises expect overseas sales to stay at current levels. These companies expect to retain existing clients, which are anticipated to order the same volume of products.

The remaining suppliers project that overseas revenue will decline due to competition with suppliers from Vietnam and Thailand.

EU and the Asia-Pacific region are anticipated to be the main export destinations of 20 interviewed suppliers, having seen rising demand from these markets. Many companies intend to gain or strengthen their foothold in Oceania, in particular, amid its booming tourism industry and the large number of hotels and resorts that would require wicker furniture.

Indonesia Wicker furniture Supplier Survey Export Forecast

Indonesia’s wicker furniture selection is expected to expand further in coming months as suppliers go on different paths in terms of product development.

Space-saving structures are on trend. Of the 18 companies featured in this report, 45 percent plan to release simple designs or contemporary pieces characterized by slim silhouettes. Twenty percent intend to come out with multifunction models such as chairs with attached tables and lounge chairs that can double as a bed.

Environmental awareness is also a key factor in product development. Twenty-five percent of the surveyed suppliers will increase their use of environment-friendly materials such as water hyacinth.

Challenges

For most suppliers, price competition and matters that affect it are the main hindrances to export growth. Among Indonesia furniture suppliers’ toughest competitors are counterparts in Vietnam and Malaysia, which have lower production costs.

Higher raw material costs are making it more difficult for Indonesia makers to compete on price. The cost of rattan asalan increased from 7,000 to 12,000 Indonesian rupiah per kilogram in the past nine months, while rattan lesion rose from 17,500 to 22,000 per kilogram. To reduce costs, some suppliers are opting for synthetic rattan.

Finding new export markets is another major challenge due to language barriers and suppliers’ limited knowledge about online marketing. Obtaining certifications is another concern, primarily due to the cost involved.

Indonesia Wicker furniture Survey Key Findings

Companies selling products that use wood have to obtain a certificate of compliance with the requirements of the Indonesian Timber Legality Assurance System or Sistem Verifikasi Legalitas Kayu (SVLK). To get this certificate, a supplier has to spend about 40 to 80 million rupiah (about $3,000 to more than $6,000) and submit many documents. Smaller companies have tied up with larger companies to receive to reduce the expense involved in obtaining an SVLK certificate.
