The Smart Cities Sector – Key Trends in South East Asia

Why Buy This Report?

South East Asia is a diverse region, and is comprised of 10 countries: Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar, which together form the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN).

The region enjoys peace, security, and prosperity, and has a strong value proposition. Taken as a whole, it is the seventh largest economy in the world and is projected to become the fourth largest economy by 2050. ASEAN’s combined GDP stands at USD 2.5 trillion. This is expected to quadruple to USD 10 trillion between 2030 and 2050. Today it has over 630 million people. ASEAN’s urban hubs (it has around 50 cities with populations of over 500,000) will continue to drive an overwhelming share of its economic development in the next few decades.

Smart cities have become a hot topic in South East Asia, as countries in the region turn to smart innovations to make its cities more livable, and to accommodate further growth while also tackling environmental and societal constraints.

Singapore is well on its ‘smart city’ journey, having implemented electronic road pricing, smart building technologies, innovative water management and treatment systems, among others, and has become a smart city that others aspire to. Meanwhile, other cities in are also embracing smart city innovation. Bandung, a city in Indonesia, has set up an IBM Command Centre to manage city operations and is employing video analytics, GPS tracking, and apps to enhance its citizen’s lives. The Vietnamese government, on the other hand, has been in talks with the U.S Commercial Service for US businesses in the design, energy, ICT, transportation, water and waste sectors to help build infrastructural and technological capabilities for the city.

As South East Asia embraces the next wave of smart city technologies and innovations, countless business opportunities are available for companies looking to tap into emerging market segments – especially in the areas of digital government services, efficient energy use and renewables, water and waste management, transportation, education and healthcare. The region presents a burgeoning market opportunity for both local and global businesses looking to contribute to the growth.

The report covers the six key ASEAN markets: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines. For each market, we offer a country profile, which is then followed by a snapshot of the Smart Cities sector in that country. Rather than attempting to cover the entire Smart Cities sector, we identify smart solutions and initiatives that have been deployed in the country in four key sectors, namely Smart Building, Smart Water, Smart Transport and Smart Energy.
