Report survey shows makers target Eastern Europe market

The survey of Indonesia garments manufacturers featured in the report shows:

  • 56 percent of suppliers expect to raise export quotes.
  • 50 percent expect export sales to increase by up to 10 percent.
  • 100 percent will target the EU market.
  • 30 percent will focus on incorporating ethnic and modern elements into product designs.

Difficulties in finding skilled labor and increasing material costs pose a challenge for Indian suppliers. In order to remain competitive, they focus on offering unique ethnic-modern designs and environmentally friendly products.

Makers tend to target low-end to mid-range products, while corporate gift makers focus on mid-range to higher-end customers.
