2021 Top Companies in Indonesia

According to Investopedia, market capitalization is defined as how much a company is worth on the stock market. Companies are often categorized into three groups based on their market capitalization:

  • Large-Cap (USD 10 billion or more)
  • Mid-Cap (USD 2 billion to USD 10 billion)
  • Small-Cap (USD 300 million to USD 2 billion)

Learn from the Top Companies in Indonesia

The preceding list of Indonesia’s top companies provides some valuable insights that might help entrepreneurs make informed decisions in their business.

For instance, five of the top companies in Indonesia by market capitalization are from the finance industry, which is dominated by state-owned banks.

Furthermore, despite the fact that Bank Jago has only been established for a few months, it has one of the greatest market capitalization (USD 14.6 billion).

Rapid digital adoption across Indonesian banks, especially state-owned companies, is one of the contributing factors to the financial and banking industry’s continued strong expansion.

According to a recent analysis from Google, Temasek, and Bain, Indonesia’s internet economy will likely reach USD 330 billion in value by 2030, nearly doubling the present digital economy’s value of USD 170 billion in Southeast Asia.

The analysis also predicted that Indonesia’s internet economy will grow to USD 146 billion by 2025, up from USD 70 billion this year, thanks to an open legislative environment that encourages the use of digital financial services.

The use of digital banking has increased dramatically in Indonesia. In 2017, 57% of Indonesian consumers actively used digital banking (at least once a month via the internet or mobile channels). These consumers are expected to spend less cash as they depend more on digital payment methods.

Already in 2021, 55% of respondents say they use cash for less than 30% of their weekly expenditures, and 80% of Indonesian survey respondents report that they expect to maintain or increase their use of mobile and online banking beyond the pandemic. This broad adoption of digital banking during the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the industry to a new level of maturity, opening new opportunities and challenges for banks and nonbanks alike.
