MARKET OVERVIEW Indonesia’s data centre market continues to grow, buoyed by the government investment into the country’s digital economy and its acceleration of digital transformation across all ministries, government agencies, and state-owned enterprises. Coupled with the huge domestic demand for digital services that is also propelling the data centre industry Greater Jakarta continues to rapidly transform into a global data centre hub. Although Batam, due to its close proximity to Singapore is increasingly becoming popular, Jakarta, the current capital of Indonesia until the future capital will be inaugurated in late 2024, and its surroundings of Greater Jakarta, takes up more than 90% of Indonesia operational IT capacity at 202MW, an almost 20% increase since our last update in H1 2023. Since the government started to ease its stance on data centre regulations in recent years, Jakarta offers promising investment prospects with government provided tax incentives and exemptions to boost the digital economy. In addition, the government is continuing its efforts to promote data localisation in Indonesia and the Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kominfo) has released a draft proposing amendments to the country's data protection regulations. They are now seeking public comments on these proposed changes, reflecting an effort to enhance data privacy and security in Indonesia. Hyperscale activities have previously been focused on East Jakarta, around the availability zones of AWS and Microsoft towards the Bekasi / Kaarawang corridor, east of Jakarta where greenfield developments have become increasingly popular due to better infrastructure and lower land prices. However, land availability in established industrial estates are starting to decrease due to the influx of data centre development. With many facilities coming live in 2024, competition is expected to be strong in Greater Jakarta and exert pressure on pricing in the market Regarding sustainability, the country aims to accelerate renewable energy production. The Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP), a US$20B initiative involving Indonesia, the U.S., and Japan, aims to retire coal-fired power plants and promote renewable energy for carbon neutrality by 2050.
