Southeast Asia Breaks Ecommerce Day Record, Grows by Over 200%

Using 12/12, Southeast Asia’s answer to Singles Day as a benchmark, aCommerce Intelligence estimates that ecommerce grew by over 200% from 2014 to 2015. The data looks at how many orders were placed from Dec 10 – Dec 12 across three countries (TH, ID, PH) and normalized against the amount of clients, which also saw aggressive growth from 90 clients last year to 170 today.

Lazada, the region’s largest ecommerce player and aCommerce Thailand client, also reported explosive growth with volume of orders growing by 300% from the same period last year, reaching 1.7 million orders.

“Following in the footsteps of China and the US, Southeast Asia is on the cusp of an ecommerce golden age. And while online shopping accounts for only 1% of retail today, the region is slated to reach double-digit China-esque numbers within the next 4-5 years. The growth that over 170 ecommerce players are experiencing in one year makes us confident that the opportunity is on track to being realized.” – Paul Srivorakul, aCommerce Group CEO
