Patchouli Oil Industry
Indonesia was one of the biggest exporter of essential oil in the world, the output was
more than 4000 tons per annum (Statistics Indonesia, 2011). Around 85% of patchouli oil
world consumption was coming from Indonesia. World demand of patchouli oil was more
than 1500 tons per annum. Indonesia’s output of patchouli oil was 1000 to 1500 tons per
annum. Average export of patchouli oil was 1.057 ton per year (Ministry of Trade, 2012).
The large natural resources was one of the main factor which was supporting essential oil
plantation, refinery and trading business. The main area producing patchouli were
Sulawesi, Sumatra and Java island. Small type industry on continuous patchouli oil
production was using a 30 acre field of plantation project. Most famous variety were
Tapaktuan, Lhokseumawe, Sidikalang with land productivity and yield were 13.28 tons/acre
and 2.83%, 11.09 tons/acre and 3.21%, 10.5 tons/acre and 2.89% (Balittro, 2012)

LOCAL MARKET AND COMPETITIVE
Recently, there were more than 30 companies of essential oil in Indonesia. The huge
company were :
3. Van Aroma
7. Karimun Kencana Aromatics, etc.
Price was fluctuated, it depends on stock, demand, local price, season and the essential
company player. Small distiller sell their product to essential oil companies, and they’re
collected it into tons and then export it. Small amount of patchouli oil wouldn’t catch
up the minimum quantity needed by the importers. A long marketing chain start from
traditional distiller-collectors-essential oil companies-traders-buyers. Singapore was one
of the patchouli oil biggest trader.
Around 70% of patchouli oil global market was dominated by Givaudan. The others was
playing in a low quantity and volume. Since there’s no other substituent of patchouli
oil, fragrance and perfume industry still needs patchouli oil for their product.
