Nice time to be investing in SEA
At a Glance
Bain research shows that Southeast Asia’s investment ecosystem is entering a new phase of growth. We expect that by 2024, the region will give rise to at least 10 new companies with a market value of more than $1 billion each.
More than 1,300 companies in Southeast Asia received a first round of seed financing since 2011, including 261 in 2017—five times the level of 2011.
Total deal value over the next five years is likely to reach $70 billion, double the level of the previous five years.
