Despite car sales having slowed significantly in Indonesia, there are at least three automotive companies eager to invest a combined IDR 21 trillion (approx. USD $1.6 billion) to expand production capacity in Indonesia this year (either by establishing a new factory or enhancing production capacity at existing plants). In 2015 car sales in Indonesia fell 16.1 percent (year-on-year) to 1.01 million vehicles, the nation's lowest car sales figure since 2011. However, Indonesia remains the second-largest car market and producer in the ASEAN region, after Thailand.
Indonesian car exports may reach 310,000 vehicles in 2014, a 12.72 percentage point growth from last year (275,000 vehicles). Exports of completely built up (CBU) units are expected to number 200,000 while completely knocked down (CKD) units are estimated to reach 110,000 units by the year-end. Indonesian Industry Minister MS Hidayat confirmed that the automotive industry of Indonesia has shown good performance. Currently, Indonesian automotive products are exported to a total of 80 countries.

The structure of Indonesia's automotive industry remains weak as it is too dependent on imports of raw materials, making sales prices of cars highly vulnerable to the volatile Indonesian rupiah. The automotive industry has been one of the many local industries that has been plagued by Indonesia's economic slowdown and fragile rupiah (amid looming tighter monetary policy in the USA) as people's purchasing power has weakened. In the first ten months of 2015, Indonesian car sales stood at a total of 853,008 units, down 18 percent from car sales in the same period last year.
