The production and consumption of sustainable products is assumed as one of the solutions to achieve higher sustainability level in a society. Not only rises the human‘s quality of life by fulfilling needs, but it also preserves the environment to ensure the availability of resources for the next generations. However, due to some constraints, the level of sustainability in nowadays products is still in an early stage, mainly in many developing countries. On the other side, identifying the local constraints is considered to be essential for aiming sustainability level improvements in certain countries. This paper reveals the constraints of sustainable product development in Indonesia, as a preliminary study to build strategic plans in addressing better sustainability in Indonesian competitive manufacturing business environment. The research is conducted using literature review, a group discussion and interview sessions with experienced industrial design practitioners in Indonesia, and subsequently the data is analyzed qualitatively. As the result, four themes of constraints are identified encompassing consumer issues, human labor issues, pol icy issues and supporting factors issues. The results are further discussed in their relation to the sustainability aspects, and how the condition can be addressed to make improvements in the future. However, the implementation of these results to the product design process is out of the scope of this paper. The discussion is acclaimed to be beneficial for the product manufacturers, researchers and the government, where the improvement would only be effective with total commitment from these stakeholders.
