ASEAN's Largest & Most Influential Trade Show for Automotive Industry, JAKARTA
On behalf of GEM Indonesia, I would like to say a great big Thank You to you for supporting us in INAPA 2017. INAPA 2017 returned to prove as ASEAN's Largest Trade Show for Automotive Industry 2017.
We have received so many wonderful feedbacks from INAPA visitors regarding the quality of exhibits it really is a great compliment to the investment you and all exhibitors made in the displays and exhibition stands. In fact, many visitors are already saying that INAPA was an exhibition worth visiting with the most complete automotive products (from tier-1, tier-2, tier-3 and aftermarket) to explore that they really do not need to attend any other event in ASEAN. We like that! INAPA has become those buyers agenda next year.
I hope the positive reports from buyers are also matched by equally positive reports from your sales teams too.
In terms of market size, Indonesia is the biggest car market in ASEAN. Indonesia accounts for about one-third of total annual car sales in ASEAN, followed by Thailand on the second position. Indonesia not only has a large population (over 260 million inhabitants) but is also characterized having a rapid expanding middle class. Together, these two factors create a powerful consumer force.
Per 2017 Indonesia's total installed car production capacity stands at 2.2 million units per year. However, the utilization of Indonesia's installed car production capacity is expected to fall to 55 percent in 2017 as the expansion of domestic car manufacturing capacity has not been in line with growth of domestic and foreign demand for Indonesia-made cars. Still, there are no major concerns about this situation as domestic car demand has ample room for growth in the decades to come with Indonesia's per capita car ownership still at a very low level.
So what next for INAPA 2018 - Focus to bring more ASIA buyers (OEM & Aftermarket)
