Manufacturing contributes 20 percent to Indonesia’s GDP – and it will keep growing, at over five percent for the next five years. Indonesia manufacturing value added is the biggest in ASEAN. The biggest growth rates are registered in food and beverages, chemicals and pharma, and metal, electronic and electrical equipment.

In addition to agriculture, trading, construction or mining, manufacturing is a main contributor to total GDP in Indonesia with impressive growth rates over the last few years. By output, Indonesia is one of the top ten manufacturing countries in the world. This creates substantial need of advanced manufacturing solutions.

Swiss manufacturing technologies are needed in in the packaged food industry, for example for packaging solutions in preserved food and beverages or traceable packaging technologies. Increased automation requires new technologies which drive productivity, or waste management and energy efficient technologies.

Indonesia’s current economic-, social-, and political situation is expected to remain stable and continues to attract FDI, while government initiatives are endorsing manufacturing companies to obtain advanced technology allowing them to climb up the value chain.
