2 Indonesia on the Internet 2010 a water&stone white paper As a firm operating in Indonesia andfocused on digital media, we watch thedevelopment of the Indonesian Internetmarket with interest. While everyoneagrees the market is growing rapidlyand that the velocity of change issignificant, there is a lack of availabledata documenting what is happening.Official statistics from the governmentare hard to find and often out of date,audience measurement firms are fewand far between (and loathe to sharetheir information freely). This year, we decided to step into thegap and provide our own summary of the state of the Internet in Indonesia,2010. Our focus is on raisingawareness of what is happening online-- where do people visit? What brandsare emerging? Who are the players inthis dynamic market? To that end, weoffer this paper and hope you find ituseful.

 What do we know about Indonesia?
In terms of population size, Indonesia is fourth in the world. With almost
people; Indonesia total population ranks between Brazil and the UnitedStates. (see, wikipedia)Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim nation. (see, wikipedia)Indonesia’s Internet population is projected to be
45 million
people; that is apenetration rate of 
. (see, China Daily) To give you some idea of the growth in the Internet in Indonesia, the Internetpopulation in 2008 was
18 million
. Put another way,
growth in the spanof 2 years. (see, World Bank)In terms of Internet penetration, Indonesia lags behind many countries in Asia,where the region’s average is
. (see, Internet World Stats)Looking at Asia, only China, India and Japan have (numerically) more Internetusers than Indonesia. (see, Internet World Stats)
Put it all together, and you begin to see a picture of a fast growing Internet population thatstill has significant room to grow. Add to that the fact that there are unique cultural issuesand a distinct identity and you can see clearly that the Indonesian market merits someattention. What happens here is going to impact the Internet globally. To be certain, the market faces challenges, particularly in the areas of infrastructure.Internet connections here are slow, expensive and unreliable. To appreciate the limitationsfully you must also consider that Indonesia has low per capita income, varying educationlevels, and an unequal distribution of access to the Internet throughout the archipelago. There’s so much potential, but there’s so much that must be done before it can be realized.If ever there was an argument for a government working to bridge the digital divide, it ishere.Despite the challenges, 2010 saw a significant strengthening of the online market and theemergence of several strong local players, as the pages that follow document. This paperlooks first at the top sites and search phrases for 2010, then seeks to identify the Top 5sites in each of a number of key categories, as shown in the Contents list at right.
