The Southeast Asian market has been very popular in the past two years. After China and India, the Southeast Asian market has become an emerging blue ocean market. With its huge demographic dividend and steady GDP growth, it has attracted large enterprises and e-commerce platforms to invest heavily in Southeast Asia.Southeast Asia consists of 11 countries: Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Brunei, the Philippines and East Timor.In the past, European countries and America were deeply favored and sought after by everyone. Whether it is overseas home ownership or immigration, European and America are undoubtedly the first choice for everyone.With the increasing threshold of investment in Europe and the United States, and the influence of the economic situation and national policies, the popularity of the European and American countries has been reduced a lot, so these groups have begun to look for new investment opportunities.0 1Southeast Asian DemographicSoutheast Asia has a large population density, and the current population has reached 630 million (including 60% of the youth population), accounting for 8.6% of the world's total population. Nearly 50% of them are urban population, and the median age is about 29 years old.Under the severe trend of global aging, the working-age population in Southeast Asia will continue to grow until 2020. The advantage of the demographic dividend is conducive to the formation of a larger consumer market in Southeast Asia.0 2Cheap LaborSoutheast Asia has a large population, and the youth population accounts for 60% of the total population. Its labor force is sufficient and cheap, and it will promote the improvement of manufacturing industry in Southeast Asia.Take Indonesia as an example: the per capita wage in 2017 is only $300 per month, the average Chinese wage is $738 per month, while the US is $4,814 per month. With the help of low cost, Southeast Asia has great development prospects.0 3Mobile Internet Technology PopularizationSoutheast Asia is a land that full of unknowns and imagination.
