Southeast Asia’s internet economy is expected to cross the $100 billion mark by the end of 2019 before tripling by 2025. Indonesia, the world’s fourth most-populous country and also the largest country in Southeast Asia, with 264 million people, is a promising market given its large, youthful population who is contributing to the high smartphone penetration rate. It is undoubtedly a hotbed for start-up activity in Southeast Asia with five unicorns: Go-Jek, Traveloka, Tokopedia, Bukalapak, and OVO.
Many companies going abroad (chuhai) are choosing Indonesia as their key market. JD’s unmanned store moved into Indonesia as first overseas expansion and Alibaba led a $1.1 billion round in Indonesia-based e-commerce firm Tokopedia.
With 171 million internet users, and significant growth of VC funding during the past five years, Indonesia is definitely a lucrative market for tech companies as new opportunities for collaboration and business expansion will emerge.
