Competition in Indonesian steel industry

Steel industry is one among the top 10 industries to support Indonesian economic growth. From the supply side, the production of the steel industry is still left behind by Malaysian and Thailand. And from the demand side, both countries has a significant improvement during 1998 to 2006. One of the problem in Indonesia’s steel industry is the lack of production capacity and technology. This problem cause the lack of supply and made the other industry choose to import their need of steel. The other reason is discriminative act of the steel supplier where they only sold their product to their own group. This situation has made the needs to import becoming bigger. This paper try to examine this problem by mapping the structure of the steel industry, analyze the competitiveness and identify and analyze regulation in steel industry.
