Overview of Indonesia's printing market

Indonesia's five industrial pillars are oil, wood, palm oil, cigarettes and printing. Back in 1956, the printing industry was one of Indonesia's five industrial pillars

during the Asian economic crisis in 1997, many industries in Indonesia suffered a serious blow, but the printing industry showed great endurance. Many printing enterprises have survived and have been doing well

of course, during the economic crisis, many printing enterprises also paid attention to: they were hit hard and were forced to sell many valuable fixed assets and equipment in exchange for cash. How many printing equipment were sold abroad again at that time? There are no official statistics in this regard. However, according to the statistics of the Ministry of printing industry in Indonesia, at least thousands of printing equipment have been sold abroad

today, all this has become the past. I hope our printing industry will flourish again in the near future. In the past three years, Indonesia's economy has achieved significant growth, and the equipment lost during the crisis has been imported back. However, what is not ideal is that most of the equipment we import is second-hand equipment. Because we don't have enough money to buy new equipment from Europe, the United States or Japan, because their price is 4-5 times that before the crisis. Now it takes 15 to 20 years to recover the investment, but before the crisis, it only takes 3 to 5 years to recover the investment, and few financial institutions are willing to invest for us

in 1999, the Indonesian government abolished the Ministry of national information and deregulated the publishing industry, which had a great impact on product performance. Nowadays, almost every company can publish freely without control. It was later confirmed that the "deregulation" initiative has indeed become an important factor for the rapid revitalization of the printing industry. At present, there are 1400 registered newspaper and magazine publishers in Indonesia, far more than 283 before the "deregulation"

the "decentralized management policy" in 2000 is another huge driving force for the development of the printing industry, and will continue to play a role in the next few years. Local governments in areas outside Java must invest in the introduction of printing equipment in order to seize this opportunity

before 2000, most books and government documents were printed in Jakarta or Java. At present, the government encourages local provinces to complete the printing and distribution work independently

this policy alone has led to the establishment of hundreds of new printing companies in the past three years, and the existing printing companies have also invested in purchasing more equipment. In order to fill this gap, about 150 second-hand web printing machines have been imported

printing education is still the key. The two major institutions established by Indonesia in the late 1960s and early 1970s have had a significant impact on the growth of Indonesia's printing industry

pusgrafin is a cooperative project between the Indonesian printing industry and the Dutch government. The mission of the college is to help the printing industry understand more printing knowledge and train practitioners so that they can apply the latest technology to production practice

Indonesia Central Printing Institute is still the only institution in Indonesia that is supported by the government to train practitioners. It certainly needs updating

another institution - "Sekolah JURU cetak" printing and then exerting tension school was established at the beginning of Heidelberg's entry into the Indonesian market. The school is running well and is still a model for many other equipment manufacturers

today, we can think that the printing industry in Indonesia has recovered to the level before the 1997 crisis

according to the statistics of the Ministry of industry and trade of Indonesia, there are 25000 printing enterprises in Indonesia at present. Among them, there are 1000 large and medium-sized enterprises, 6250 small enterprises, and the rest are very small enterprises. We predict that by 2010, the total number of printing enterprises will increase to 27500, of which 1100 are large and medium-sized, 6850 are small, and the remaining 19950 are very small enterprises

we believe that the key to the success of printing in the future is printing education. Whoever supports printing education will be the winner in the future

we are familiar with Chinese motorcycles and Indian Baja motorcycles, but the printing equipment produced in China and India has not been accepted by the Indonesian printing industry. One of the main reasons is that there are no excellent sales agents, and the after-sales service is not up to standard

we believe that China and India will play an important role in the development of Indonesia's printing industry in the future. Today, offset printing plates produced in China have dominated the market. This shows that if a product can be economical, convenient and high-quality, it will be accepted by the Indonesian market with an average cost of several hundred dollars per vehicle

at present, we have imported too many second-hand equipment. Because the new equipment is too expensive, enterprises are afraid that they will not be able to recover their investment, and there is no loan support from financial institutions

undoubtedly, if China can provide support in printing education, cooperate with Indonesia's large printing enterprise association, or use equipment to reinforce Indonesia's existing training centers, and systematically train their instructors, it will certainly obtain high economic benefits
