Safety and Security Equipment Indonesia (2008)
In 2007, Indonesia’s gross domestic product (GDP) expanded at 6.3%, the fastest pace since the 1998 fiscal crisis. A slowdown in the global economy is expected to cause Indonesia’s real GDP growth to slow slightly in 2008, to 6.1%. In 2009, the Indonesian economy is expected to decelerate further to 5.7%. In general, Indonesia’s security situation has improved, with no terrorist bombings in the country in 2006 and 2007. Although terrorist cells continue to operate, the government has made vigorous and effective efforts to eliminate them.
The market demand for the safety and security industry in Indonesia remains strong with the increased levels of perceived insecurity by the population and the priority of improving commercial and public safety. Demand for security and safety equipment in industrial plants, commercial buildings, public facilities, oil/gas fields and mining operations, airports and seaports has increased substantially.
