Indonesia’s digital economy has already been overshadowing its neighbors for some time and, according to a report by Google-Temasek, it is even projected to grow from USD 40 billion to USD 130 billion by 2025. E-commerce is predicted to grow from USD 21 billion to a significant amount of USD 82 billion in the coming five years.
What is driving this insane growth, one might ask?
First off, Indonesia already ranks among the world’s top 10 countries for mobile internet usage. In fact, Indonesians are connected to social media accounts almost three and a half hours per day. Twenty-five million “new” Indonesians are getting internet access each year. This happens due to the big youth population there is in the country.
Secondly, the Indonesian authorities and banks have together facilitated digital growth for small and medium-sized enterprises through numerous initiatives. It is no surprise, then, that Indonesian startups are capturing market share in everything ranging from e-commerce and online media to transportation, travel and financial services.
In terms of market maturity and business opportunities for foreign companies, Indonesia is definitely on the rise. This huge nation of more than 17,000 islands, the world’s third-largest population presents a compelling case for companies looking to reach a vast new customer base as Southeast Asia expands its influence in the world.
