Redma explained that so far the polyester yarn production reached 680 thousand tons of a total capacity of 833 thousand tons. "Our utilization still reached 81%, we can increase the production of about 153 thousand tons if a local small industry needs" he said.

Redma explained that in 2011 the production was 680 thousand tons, 200 thousand tons exported and 480 thousand tons supplied to domestic.

"We would be very happy if the domestic industry is still needed, which means we can produce more so that we can increase production utilization" he said. Redma explained that in 2011 polyester yarn consumption reached 400 thousand tons, and this year is expected to reach 520 thousand tons, by 2015 predicted consumption could reach 580 thousand tons.

"SMEs do need more polyester fabric which means it requires a lot more polyester yarn because it is a worldwide trend following a the reduction in the supply of cotton " he said.
