Double-digit growth rates
B2c e-commerce in Southeast Asia has seen rapid growth and is predicted to maintain double-digit growth rates for the next several years. While Singapore established itself as the leading country by e-commerce sales in this sub-region, Indonesia is likely to take over this position due to increasing internet and online shopper penetration within its vast population.
