Indonesia’s rapidly developing manufacturing industry and infrastructure require high mobility, resulting in increased potential for the commercial vehicle industry where dozens of commercial vehicle brands have successfully built their market share.
Yohannes Nangoi, Chairman of GAIKINDO believes that "Indonesia has a large commercial market potential with high demand for efficient and durable commercial vehicles to support the productivity of logistics, distribution and trade actors." GAIKINDO data showed a significant increase throughout 2017 in the sales performance of all types of commercial vehicles especially for trucks with Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 5-10 tons. This has resulted in several new commercial vehicles players entering the Indonesian market, including DFSK and Sokon. Nangoi also added that "Given this improved sales performance, we are confident that commercial vehicle brand owners will remain optimistic and confident to bring their best products to the Indonesian market.”
