Thriving in the 4th largest economic region in the world


ASEAN is a major global hub of manufacturing and trade, as well as one of the fastest-growing consumer markets in the world. It is projected to rank as the fourth-largest economy by 2050. Income growth has remained strong since 2000, with average annual real gains of more than 5 percent. Already some 67 million households in ASEAN states are part of the “consuming class,” with incomes exceeding the level at which they can begin to make significant discretionary purchases That number could almost double to 125 million households by 2025, making ASEAN a pivotal consumer market of the future.
