Southeast Asia's internet economy is all set to hit the $105 billion mark this year.  Due to the ongoing pandemic, the consumers are stuck indoors and mostly prefer online mode for shopping, food delivery, and entertainment. According to the reports covering Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Singapore, 40 million new users have received internet access.

Most of the users now prefer to shop online, and ecommerce has grown by almost 63 percent.

Continued growth during the pandemic has created new unicorn companies like Go-Jek and Grab.
