Indonesian Automotive Industry Poised for Growth, Embraces Electric Vehicle Trend

The Indonesian automotive sector is gearing up for a promising year ahead, buoyed by optimistic projections set forth by the Indonesian Automotive Manufacturers Association (Gaikindo). With a wholesale vehicle sales target of 1.1 million units in 2024, the industry is poised for expansion and innovation.

This positive outlook extends to the burgeoning electric vehicle (EV) segment, as evidenced by the heightened interest witnessed at the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) 2024. Featuring a diverse array of 53 vehicle brands from various countries, including Japan, South Korea, China, and Germany, the event underscored the increasing momentum behind EV adoption.

Irianto Santoso, President Director of Dharma Polimetal, a key player in the automotive components sector, expressed confidence in the sector's growth trajectory. He highlighted the burgeoning demand for automotive components, propelled by the surging popularity of EVs. Santoso emphasized that the company's revenue prospects for the year are bolstered by the robust development of the EV industry.

In anticipation of the escalating demand for EV-related components, the Dharma Group has strategically expanded its production capabilities into the EV segment. The company is poised to serve as a key supplier for critical components such as battery packs, battery management systems, and battery swaps, while also forging partnerships within the electric motorcycle industry in Indonesia.

To support the proliferation of EVs, DRMA (Dharma Polimetal) is actively investing in the development of essential infrastructure, including both fast and slow charging stations. Moreover, the company is spearheading efforts to localize production by preparing Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motors for use in electric motorcycles, contributing to Indonesia's drive towards self-sufficiency in EV components.

In line with its ambitious growth plans, DRMA has earmarked approximately Rp 300 billion for capital expenditure (capex) in 2024. This strategic allocation underscores the company's commitment to seizing opportunities in the dynamic automotive landscape and positioning itself as a leader in the burgeoning EV market.

As Indonesia's automotive industry embraces the shift towards electrification, stakeholders like DRMA are poised to play a pivotal role in driving innovation, sustainability, and economic growth in the years to come.
