With the cancellation of PPKM (Community Activity Restrictions), Indonesians are ready to embrace and celebrate the Ramadan spirit of compassion, gratitude and humility. People adjust their activities according to the requirements of the fast such as sahur, iftar and many Indonesians take part in the mudik tradition. Gifting is a special element as many return to their hometown to meet their families ahead of Idul Fitri (Eid). The time frame before Ramadan also marks a shift in consumer behaviour and digital media activity.
The Ministry of Finance noted a 5.4% increase in the country’s GDP in Q1 2022, which can be credited to the Ramadan 2022 festival. Despite the headwinds in the global economy, the outlook for this year is positive due to the easing of restrictions and increase in consumption during Ramadan. Consumer spending generally increases across various industries and marketers should not miss this opportunity to connect with their Muslim consumers.
Certain broad trends for Ramadan 2023 are already shaping up. A recent survey highlights that 88% of Indonesians intend to make a purchase this Ramadan and that 53% percent of Indonesians plan on spending their THR (Religious Holiday Allowance) on Ramadan instead of saving it.*1
As marketers, it is crucial for us to maximise this window of opportunity and even though the digital savvy nation relies on technology for their shopping needs, the end of restrictions also means that consumers are also going back to shopping offline.
Ramadan 2023 calls for an omnichannel marketing strategy among other solutions. A recent study reveals that 60% of Indonesians who are travelling make their primary festive purchases across both online and offline channels. Marketers should also adopt a hyperlocal approach since data from the previous year highlighted that non-metro cities saw real sales grow by between 10% and 25%.*2
Marketers should also harness the potential of AR and AI to strengthen their marketing strategies. The latest findings demonstrate that 83% of shoppers or observers who have exposure to AR agree that it had an impact on their purchasing decisions. Research also continues to affirm the effect of personalization with 64% of shoppers making purchases from personalised ads.*3
Digital consumption is also set to change during Ramadan. The data reveals that 1 in 3 Indonesians will rely on video streaming for their entertainment during the fasting month and religious content is expected to be at the forefront during the day whereas light-hearted content gains traction during Iftar.*4 There are also studies that provide insights on the other verticals that are of interest to the users of social media, for instance, 86% of users are interested in content related to Food & Beverages.*5
After 3 years of being held virtually, Ramadan Insights 2023 will once again be held offline. Join us in this pivotal event as the sessions are geared towards offering a holistic strategic blueprint that optimises both online and offline strategies.
