Domestic pulp and paper consumption is projected to increase by 4.2 percent this year, compared to a 2 percent growth last year.
Chairman of the Indonesian Pulp and Paper Association (Apki), Misbahul Huda said on that stronger purchasing power of consumers at home driven by the country’s solid economic growth will push consumption.
He said that there the industry has huge room for growth considering that domestic paper consumption of about 30 kg per capita per year is still much lower than the 55-60 kg average in the Southeast Asia region.“ That’s why the pulp and paper industry is considered as a sunrise industry because its growth potential is high,” Misbahul told a press conference Wednesday.
Misbahul said there are 79 paper producers in Indonesia, plus 14 pulp producers. Production in 2011 was estimated to reach 10 million tons, or about 83 percent of installed capacity of 12 million tons. Meanwhile, pulp production reached 7 million tons, compared to installed capacity of 8.9 million tons.
Director of PT Sinarmas Pulp and Paper Product, Suhendra Wiradinata said that export, which accounts for 40-50 percent of national output, will not be much affected by the current crisis in Europe as the export has been mainly directed at countries in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
