Market Overview


The ASEAN warehousing and distribution logistics market is estimated to witness a strong growth in the forecast period, owing to the demand from expanding e-commerce sector. The factors driving the growth of the market are high demand from the last mile logistics and rapidly improving transportation infrastructure. Singapore is a major country in the ASEAN region, due to the large presence of international players and the initiatives taken by government, like Adapt and Grow, Go Digital, for SMEs and the logistics sector to improve.


Singapore is a fast-growing country in the ASEAN region, due to the geographical advantage and the strong freight and logistics market. Large players in the country have largely contributed to the warehousing infrastructure.

Local governments have been instrumental in supporting the infrastructural growth of the region. Logistics and trade facilitation master plan by the Malaysian government, smart cities planned by the ASEAN committee, and the push to become the global e-commerce hub are allowing the market to develop rapidly. 


Scope of the Report


The ASEAN warehousing and distribution logistics market covers different aspects, like warehousing technology, different segments of warehousing, like general, dangerous goods, and refrigerated warehousing, along with insights on free zones and industrial parks and effects of e-commerce.


Key Market Trends


Warehousing Opportunity in Indonesia


The majority of real estate is present in Jakarta, which is the capital and largest city of Indonesia, located among the heavily populated islands of Java. Furthermore, warehousing real estate can be located in Surabaya. A large share of warehousing infrastructure is still in the traditional ‘gudang’ style. These legacy warehousing centers are generally made of wooden or reinforced concrete, with clear heights of between 5-6 meters, no or few loading docks, and false floor loading data.


Land cost is a major factor holding back the development of the warehousing sector. Charges in Greater Jakarta, for instance, float around USD 6-7 per square meter, and are expected to enjoy modest, single-digit growth in the coming years. The concern being that the land prices have risen by 300% in recent years, making building on speculation a potentially risky business.


FMCG, pharmaceuticals and e-commerce are the major economic sectors among Indonesia’s top performing industries. Their expansion is expected to necessitate contracting and construction of new logistics hubs and warehouses.


Total e-commerce sales amounted to around USD 8 billion in 2017, with USD 5 billion of that from e-tailing in Indonesia. This has generated a long-term demand for distribution centers, logistics hubs, and 3PL services, to ensure timely, cost-effective delivery of goods ordered online.


In the FMCG sector, numerous huge facilities have been constructed on built-to-suit arrangements for top companies. Unilever, Dutch-British consumer goods giant, built its own 90,000 sq m distribution center in 2011, in anticipation of Indonesia’s retail market growth.


Pharmaceutical industry is another Indonesian sector expanding briskly. As of 2017, the sector was estimated to be worth USD 5 billion. The industry relies on temperature-sensitive transportation and storage. Cold chain is even less developed in Indonesia than warehousing, creating the opportunity for international firms to supply not only specialist chilled warehousing facilities, but general warehousing infrastructure as well.


Insights on Effect of E-commerce Growth


There are more than 330 million internet users in the ASEAN region, e-commerce in the region is estimated to become a major industry in the coming years. It is estimated that the ASEAN internet economy reached USD 72 billion in gross merchandise value, in 2018. Around 3.8 million new users are estimated to come online each month in the region, making ASEAN the fastest-growing internet market in the world between 2015 and 2020. Additionally, an expanding young population, increasing disposable incomes (all six major countries in the region are expected to break the estimated USD 3,000 GDP per capita barrier), and greater availability of online payment systems, are likely to allow the growth of the internet economy, which is estimated to grow to USD 240 billion by 2025.


The growth of e-commerce puts a pressure on the developing warehousing and logistics sector in the region. E-commerce asks for demand and quick delivery, along with a strong inventory. This is possible only through the development of the warehousing sector. A large number of players in the ASEAN region, like Yusen logistics, CEVA, and CWT Logistics, among others, have been continuously developing their warehousing infrastructure to cater to the intensifying pressure from the e-commerce sector.


Competitive Landscape


The warehousing and distribution market in ASEAN region is fragmented with a large number of players trying to grab a significant chunk of the developing market. Some of the countries in the ASEAN region, like Indonesia and Philippines, are moderately growing with the presence of large number of local players and some major players. However, Singapore, Vietnam, and Thailand are the highly competitive markets, with the presence of large number of international players.


CEVA, Yusen Logistics, Kerry Logistics, and DHL are among the major players present in the region. Increasing pressure from e-commerce and international trade has allowed the players to develop large number of warehouses in the region. Local players and distributes have been able to compete with international players, due to long-term domestic presence.

Market Overview


The ASEAN commercial vehicles market (henceforth, referred to as the market studied) was valued at USD 45.85 billion in 2018, and it is anticipated to register a CAGR of about 4.41% during the forecast period (2019 – 2024).


The ASEAN countries witnessed a strong demand for heavy trucks and machinery, with the largest construction project pipeline, globally, with approximately USD 4.9 trillion worth of projects. Exports of heavy machinery, including trucks, from Singapore to the rest of the ASEAN region have grown steadily over the years. These exports are supported by the investments in construction projects in the ASEAN region. 


Key developments in the market studied include product launches from significant manufacturers. In 2018, Mercedes-Benz launched AXOR 2528 R, IVECO launched the series 682 variant 4×2, Isuzu Astra Motor launched the new Isuzu GIGA truck, and Suzuki Indomobil Motor launched the facelift version of Mega Carry.


Some of the major players in the market studied are Toyota, Isuzu, Mitubishi, Hino, and Ford. In 2017, Toyota Motors dominated the ASEAN commercial vehicles market, with a market share of 35%, followed by Isuzu with a market share of 21%. The other players in the market studied include Daimler, TATA Motors, BAIC, and UD Trucks.


Scope of the Report


The ASEAN commercial vehicles market covers all the policies, initiatives and investment done by the governments and vehicle manufacturers across the world. The scope of the report includes:


Key Market Trends


Light Commercial Vehicle Segment is Leading the ASEAN Commercial Vehicles Market


The light commercial vehicles segment of the market studied was valued at USD 42.94 in 2018 and is expected to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period.


Under the light commercial vehicles (LCVs) segment, vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating less than 16 metric ton have been considered, which includes pickup trucks, vans, light and medium trucks, and mini buses. Pickup trucks covered the highest share, covering more than 60% of LCVs sales in the ASEAN region in 2017, and continued to be the highest in the LCV segment during 2018, as well. Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam were the major ASEAN countries with high demand for pickup trucks, in 2017. However, during 2018, Vietnam’s pickup truck sales declined, due to the country’s implementation of stringent checks on imported vehicles, which resulted in import halt from neighboring countries, majorly from Thailand, Indonesia, and Japan, during first half of 2018.


Major players, such as Toyota, Isuzu, Mitsubishi, and Hino covered nearly more than 60% of the LCV segment of the market studied during 2017 and 2018. During the forecast period, the sales of LCVs are likely to continue to grow, owing to the following instances in the ASEAN countries, as automotive players in Thailand have geared their production plans in the coming years to capture the growing demand for light commercial vehicles across the ASEAN countries during the forecast period.


New models of LCVs have been significantly introduced in the ASEAN countries by the automobile manufacturers during 2018, to sustain in a highly competitive market, as well as to cater the growing demand for advanced vehicle features among the customers in the ASEAN countries.


Geography Trends


At present, Thailand is the market leader and it is likely to continue its lead in the ASEAN commercial vehicles market. Thailand is the biggest manufacturer in the region, and is planning to raise its annual production to 3.5 million units by 2025. The country faces competition from Indonesia, which has a goal of becoming the leading production hub. At present, the demand for commercial vehicles is declining in Vietnam, due to the new rule that came into effect (Vietnam finally eliminated its import tariff for automobiles from within the ASEAN countries from 30% on Jan, 1 2018). As a result, Toyota Motor and Honda Motor have stopped their exports to Vietnam since the beginning of the year, following the implementation of a rule that requires stringent checks on imported vehicles. The sales of commercial vehicles, such as trucks and buses, dropped by 16% to 23,364 units.


Singapore is a highly-developed free economy, with some of the positive factors being open and corruption-free business, followed by transparent legal frame work and many more. The construction sector (primarily buildings in the country) exhibited slow growth in the first quarter of 2017. Though new building construction activities were active in the past few years, they exhibited slow growth in the recent past. The decrease is mainly due to the downfall in contract prices.


Competitive Landscape


Some of the key players of the ASEAN commercial vehicles market are Toyota Motor Corporation, ISUZU, Mitsubishi Motor Corporation, and Hino Motors. The market studied is highly driven with factors, like joint-venture, partnerships, and growing demand of the industrial sectors and government’s development initiatives across the ASEAN countries. Product expansion facilities, free trade agreement within the countries, growing logistics, e-commerce, and construction sectors are the factors responsible for the increase in the respective market shares of key players in the region.

Market Overview


The cold chain industry in Asian countries is expected to witness a significant growth in the coming years. With two of the fastest-growing economies, like India and China, and the increase of trade in Indonesia, Vietnam, and Singapore, turning them into thriving economic and social centers, the cold-chain industry is being seen as panacea for food wastage and a boost to the refrigerated warehousing industry. The growing urban population and changing consumer perception boost the demand for refrigerated storage and transport. The market for refrigerated or frozen products is rapidly growing in Southeast Asia. Consumption is expected to total more than USD 20 billion by 2020 among the region’s largest countries.


Seafood is an important commodity group in many ASEAN countries and serves as an important source of foreign exchange and food supply for all these countries. Furthermore, there is an increasing demand for seafood, as consumers around the world recognize its nutritional value. The implementation of cold-chain for seafood in the ASEAN region involves many challenges. One of the major challenges is the lack of integrated supply chains from farm to fork, where each industry player regards itself as a separate entity and does not plan to impose cold chain standards on the next stage in the supply chain. However, any disruption in the cold chain would have cumulative effects on the final quality of the seafood.


Scope of the Report


A complete background analysis of the ASEAN cold chain logistics market includes an assessment of the economy and contribution of sectors in the economy, market overview, market size estimation for key segments, and emerging trends in the market segments, market dynamics, and geographical trends.


Key Market Trends


Growth of E-commerce and Increasing Consumer Choices


ASEAN e-commerce sales are significantly increasing, which attracts many investors across the world to setup their business. E-commerce has given consumers access to goods and commodities that were previously out of their reach, from imported groceries to trendy cosmetics. The basic perception of the consumers regarding frozen and refrigerated food has been changing significantly, coupled with rapid urbanization, where frozen food is moving more online. E-commerce is reshaping the online retail sales, where the growth in the sales of chilled and frozen food creates the demand for cold chain infrastructure, such as refrigerated transport, storage facilities, and optimum supply chain. Additionally, the rapid growth in the sales of fresh food has offered challenges and opportunities to the service providers. The increasing online purchases put pressure on the grocers, and consequently it is being transferred to the people who store and transport it.


Increasing Perishable Trade in Philippines Creates Opportunity for the Cold Chain Industry


In the Philippines, there is an ongoing shift in consumer habits to buy fresh and frozen produce from supermarkets than from traditional wet markets. Besides the internal demand, external demand is also driving the explosion in cold chain storage facilities and logistics. The Philippines agricultural exports have increased dramatically in recent years. In the last quarter of 2016, agricultural exports rose 42.2% year-on-year. Agri-based products amounted to USD 1.03 billion, placing it in second position for exports overall.


The Philippines has also witnessed a shift in consumer behavior to buy fresh products. Additionally, the growth of online grocery and e-commerce has bolstered the growth of cold storage facilities and infrastructure support. The US-supported Philippines Cold Chain Project (PCCP) is also expected to play an important role in enhancing the Southeast country’s cold chain logistics facilities and infrastructure. The project aims to increase agricultural production, which meets international food safety requirements by developing cold chain-related markets and improved technologies. Additionally, the country’s agricultural products get a boost, with China signing a USD 1 billion in agreement for imports. The investments indicates the need for a temperature-controlled environment for integrating supply chains and creating value addition to customers.


Competitive Landscape


The cold chain logistics market landscape of the ASEAN region is fragmented in nature with a mix of global and local players. The market is still served by small- and medium-sized local players with small fleets and storage spaces. Some of the countries, like Singapore, have a strong presence of global players, like DHL and Nippon Express. Additionally, global players are investing in the market and acquiring local companies to increase their footprint in the region. For instance, Tasco, a subsidiary of Yusen Logistics, acquired two major cold chain service providers in Malaysia. To compete with the global players, local enterprises are also investing in cold chain infrastructure to meet the standards. Furthermore, logistics companies in Japan strengthen their activities in ASEAN by setting up bases of land transportation in ASEAN countries for each country within the manufacturing and distribution industries, thereby pushing the construction of a supply chain. The companies are also involved in the development of cold chain and also actively invest in logistics related to fruits and vegetables, flowers, cosmetics and consumer goods.
