In recent years, I came across many articles and infographics on the rise of e-Commerce in Asia but hardly any of them (if not, only a handful) focus on Southeast Asia. Has this region been forgotten? Internet users in Southeast Asia constitute 10% of total Internet users in Asia and it is expected that the number of Internet users in the big 6 countries in this region (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) will rise to approximately 205 million by the year 2016! With this growing number of Internet users and young online shoppers in an increasingly connected Southeast Asia, many industry players are bullish about the e-Commerce market in this region.
The e-Commerce Show Asia team in Singapore decided to come up with an easily digestible and informative infographic that summarises the state of e-Commerce in Southeast Asia. We hope youâ€™ll find this infographic useful for your business!
