Abstract: This study aims to identify the primary factors and subfactors that affect the development of the patchouli oil industry in Indonesia. FDM is used to compile and classify the primary factors and subfactors of patchouli oil development in Indonesia based on seven expert evaluations, five experts from practitioners, and two experts from academicians. There are 13 main factors identified from a total of 16 primary factors and 37 subfactors identified from a total of 41 subfactors. From the result of the study, there are some critical factors in patchouli oil industry development in Indonesia. There are quality, total revenue, and markets as the main factor, as well as the distillation method, global patchouli standard price, and production cost, as a subfactor. From all of these factors, the quality of patchouli oil, which is influenced by the refining method, is a very significant factor in determining the development of Indonesia's patchouli oil industry.
