Heavy Equipment Market in Indonesia Burdened by Low Commodity Prices

Heavy Equipment Market in Indonesia Burdened by Low Commodity Prices

The production of heavy equipment in Indonesia in the first half of 2014 fell by 25 percent (year-on-year) to 2,292 units. The decline in production is due to the still weak state of the mining and construction sectors in Southeast Asia’s largest economy. Main reasons being the implementation of the mineral ore export ban in January 2014 and low commodity prices, for example coal.
