Indonesia’s online industry
Indonesia has massive potential to be a leader in the digital space in Asia. Mobile penetration is high and there’s a lot of enthusiasm in the industry, which is exciting to see.
If you look at the percentage of online advertising spend in Indonesia, it only represents about 1 percent of total advertising spent, so there’s enormous scope for growth. Indonesia spends roughly US$40 million per year on online advertising yet the total advertising, across TV, print, and other mediums is about US$ 5 billion.
So when you look at the amount of time people are spending across the range of media, there's a disproportionate amount spent on TV/print versus online. So I think it's a market that’s ripe for growth. You only need to look around at this conference and you can sense plenty of enthusiasm and excitement about the future of digital in Indonesia.
