  • Indonesian Motorcycle Producers Curb Production on Purchasing Power

    Indonesian Motorcycle Producers Curb Production on Weakened Purchasing Power

    Similar to the automotive industry, Indonesia’s motorcycle industry also feels the effects of lower demand so far this year. Due to Indonesia’s slowing economic growth in combination with the high domestic interest rate and depreciating rupiah, Indonesians’ purchasing power has weakened and thus Indonesian consumers have become more careful before purchasing motorcycles and cars. As a result stocks of motorcycles at local dealers have been rising and one way to have a healthier supply-demand ratio is by limiting motorcycle production.

  • Motorcycle Sales in Indonesia Fall on Declining Purchasing Power

    Domestic motorcycle sales in Indonesia declined 5 percent year-on-year (y/y) to 680,642 units in October 2014 (from the same month last year). Particularly weaker sales of the underbone motorcycle impacted negatively on total October motorcycle sales. As people are concerned about a looming subsidized fuel price hike this month (causing accelerated inflation, thus curbing people’s purchasing power), consumers postpone the purchase of a motorcycle. The government is expected to raise prices of subsidized fuels by almost 50 percent.

    Exports of Indonesian-made cars and motorcycles are expected to grow sharply in 2014 and 2015, although coming from a low base and rather insignificant compared to domestic sales.
