Indonesia’s stainless steel mills invested and built by Chinese enterprises have been put into operation one after another in recent years, making Indonesia become the second-largest stainless steel producer in the world, with a continually expanding international market.

In 2022, stainless steel costs surged due to issues such as global inflation and the energy crisis; however, Indonesia’s stainless steel exports kept growing amid the slowing global consumption. Indonesia's stainless steel exports kept at around 400,000 tons per month last year.

Indonesia has its own low-cost advantage, and its export products are mainly billets and hot-rolled steel. With the commissioning of the cold rolling project in Indonesia, China’s stainless steel exports were expected to be impacted more in the future.
