Southeast Asia’s digital economy is on course to hit ~$200B GMV in 2022, three years earlier than we had anticipated in the inaugural report shared in 2016 despite current macroeconomic headwinds. Digital Financial Services has overtaken e-commerce as SEA’s top investment sector and with rising awareness of ESG issues, the report includes an inaugural section on the environment and social impact of the digital economy.
While the push to $1T GMV by 2030 continues, the path to profitability has risen to prominence as an immediate priority for companies. This will mean mastering a delicate balance between price increases, cost optimisation measures, and raising cost of capital in the near term.
Join EuroCham and Bain to discuss the findings based on our latest e-Conomy SEA 2022 report by Google, Temasek and Bain. At the by-invite only lunch session, co-author of the report, Bain partner Florian Hoppe, will share key highlights on how digital economy sectors are performing across Southeast Asia, specifically:
How SEA’s digital economy is on track to grow twice as fast as GDP and could reach up to $1T by 2030
What is in store for SEA’s e-Conomy in 2023 in terms of the key trends across sectors and the investment landscape
What are the priorities for the sector to ensure sustainable growth, particularly across environment and social issues
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion on the topic of Digital Economy 2023 – Path to Profitability where we discuss the opportunities, challenges and strategies on navigating uncertainty and muted growth conditions in 2023 with industry experts.
