FMCG market in Indonesia - statistics and facts

The fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry is one of the large-scale industries in Indonesia, significantly contributing to the country’s economic development. The rising purchasing power due to the increase in personal income, as well as increasing urbanization that shifts people’s lifestyles have been cited as some of the key growth drivers in the sector. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this was among the industries in the country that have not been significantly affected. Indonesia recorded a positive overall year-on-year change in the FMCG market value of 8.8 percent in the third quarter of 2020.

    As one of the fast-growing FMCG markets in Southeast Asia, the FMCG market in Indonesia has advanced along with the increase in demands and changing lifestyle of its population.
