Extending Reach for Merchants in SEA
Studies have shown that with the rapid adoption of digitization across Southeast Asia, the digital economy in this region would generate an estimated USD363 billion in revenue by 2025 and an expected peak of USD1 trillion by 2030. This exponential growth would be driven primarily by the vast population of consumers and super-efficient network2.
With the rapidly increasing pace of globalization and digitization, Southeast Asia is identified as one of the growth engines for the global digital economy. Singapore, being the focal point in the region for financial services, transportation and international trade, is a robust and digitally-connected economy with a population of smart phone savvy consumers in high spending power. To tap into this opportunity, merchants must be enabled to offer digital payment solutions and services. A study conducted by GlobalData predicted that Singapore’s ecommerce market would grow year on year by up to 16.2%, from SGD7.8 billion (USD5.9 billion) in 2021 to SGD14.2 billion (USD10.7 billion) by 20253.
