The Power of Indonesian Handicrafts
Indonesian furniture industry consists of products of wood (rubber wood, mahogany, teak, and acacia), rattan and metal / plastic either for export or domestic consumption. The Indonesia furniture handicraft wholesale marketplace also caters those products too.
While large firms generally specialize in mixed panels (plywood, particle board and medium density fibreboard) and hardwood, small-medium scale producers focus on hardwood furniture. It is caused by the high capital costs required to produce coated furniture panels. For small-medium scale producers, the cost of materials purchased as the panel is still high, as the market price of these products is reflected in domestic demand and exports of plywood, particle board and medium density fibreboard.
