Digital retail sales in Southeast Asia’s six largest markets – Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam – will reach over $14 billion in 2016. This is an increase of 33.6 per cent annually.

This growth in e-commerce is due to rising internet and mobile use, as well as high population size and purchasing power. The US Census Bureau estimates that these markets will have around 21.7 million new consumers over the next four years.
