Indonesia to Boast Double-Digit Ad Growth for Foreseeable Future

Ad spending in the country will hit $11.16 billion this year

October 23, 2014 | Media Buying

Indonesia isn’t the largest ad market in Asia-Pacific, but with the third-largest population in the region (after China and India)—and one that, like others in the region, is moving more toward middle-class status—paid media spending is rising quickly.

Total Media Ad Spending in Indonesia, 2013-2018 (billions and % change)

This year, eMarketer estimates, total paid media spending in Indonesia will rise by 22.0% to $11.16 billion. By the end of our forecast period, in 2018, spending will have nearly doubled to almost $20 billion. Double-digit growth will continue throughout the forecast period.

Other firms estimating ad spending growth in Indonesia agree that total paid media spend is rising quickly, though ZenithOptimedia and GroupM both placed significantly lower estimates on current spending levels. But both firms also estimate growth rates closely in line with eMarketer’s.
