JAKARTA, March 29th, 2018 – IDC Financial Insights today unveiled a list of fintech companies in Indonesia that are expected to mature faster than others. As the number of fintech startups are at rise in Indonesia, the list of fintech startups announced are based on extensive analysis of the observed fintech within the country.

Indonesia is the fourth largest population country in the world and is an attraction for global players such as Google, Alibaba, Tencent and others to take part in the fintech development as a player or investor. IDC witnessed entries of new and non-traditional vendors into financial services. Payment and Lending categorized fintech startup companies dominate the overall Indonesia fintech landscape in terms of maturity level, followed by marketplace, wealth management, company solution and accounting based software provider.

“In the future Indonesia fintech market will have consolidations by collaboration, merger, and acquisitions between the players. It has already happened as Go Jek (Go Pay) acquisitioned Midtrans, Kartuku, and Mapan. The driver is the need to penetrate consumer market as soon as possible in middle of many players, not only to grab higher market share, but also to attract more investors” added Triyanto.
