This year, we are going to Indonesia. We have more than 30 years of experience with conducting desk and field research in emerging markets. This research is supported by 2 professors of the Rotterdam School of Management, one of Europe’s best business schools. Therefore, our services are perfectly suited to businesses looking for high quality research and advice for expansions to Indonesia with a friendly price tag.

The ECP offers various kinds of consultancy services with regards to expansion and investment opportunities in Indonesia. Our tailor-made research ranges from setting up a viable entry strategy into the Indonesian market to writing a business plan concerning expansion activities in the country.

Research options

Entering strategy

Have you not had the opportunity to enter the Indonesian market yet? We can help by researching all the factors that go into starting up business in Indonesia.

Market research

Through market research we can identify and define market opportunities for clients. To gain more insight into consumer behavior or a specific target-group, data can be gathered and analyzed. Research for companies in the B2B industry is also possible.

Value chain analysis

Through this analysis, we can investigate possibilities in every stage of the supply chain, particularly if your company wishes to integrate their supply chain in Indonesia. For example, we can conduct research about suppliers, distributors, or (potential) customers. Moreover, we can analyse opportunities for outsourcing business operations to Indonesia, or foreign direct investment opportunities.

Competitor analysis

A competitor analysis considers the nature and extent of the competition in (a region of) Indonesia. Additionally, it identifies major competitors, their strengths and weaknesses and those of their products, their objectives, their strategies and their technologies. Also, the market structure is examined closely.

Feasibility analysis

With this analysis, we can examine the feasibility of entry into the Indonesian market. By means of analyses supported by RSM we can evaluate your business position and formulate a strategy for entry based on the results. This analysis can also be performed on an industry level.

Supplier analysis

In this analysis, we investigate the supplier landscape and identify the best and most fitting suppliers for your company.
