In all countries except Vietnam, double digit growth is expected to be driven by domestic retailers. Indonesia is set to grow, steadily driven by domestic players. In Vietnam, foreign retailers are believed to be investing to gain leverage in the fast expanding market. Though it is dominated by traditional way of business, that is rapidly changing as modern retail picks up. Saigon Co.op is growing and will keep its leading position till 2022.

Online retailers are also not relenting on gaining new customers and investing their resources. While apart from going to new regions, large format stores are digitising physical stores to create a seamless shopping experience.
