Imports dominate the Indonesian water and industrial pumps market, accounting for more than 90 percent of the total market. Japan, China, Singapore and Germany are the key competitors for U.S. exporters. The total market demand in 2006 for water and industrial pumps was $862 million. If the domestic and export markets remain stable, it is predicted that the growth of total domestic demand will increase by 10 to 15 percent annually over the next five years.
