In addition to the figures listed above for the imports from the U.S., a considerable
amount of indirect imports enter Indonesia through Singapore. Several U.S.
manufacturers such as ATI, Cisco, Hewlett Packard, Intel, Maxtor, Seagate, and Sun
have manufacturing plants in Asian countries from which products indirectly enter the
Indonesian market through intra-Asia distribution channels.

Indonesia’s computer market has a positive outlook for 2007. Total PC sales in 2007
are expected to reach 2.0 million units or about $1.4 billion in value, a 20 percent
increase from 2006. Private companies are the main PC consumers, accounting for 71
percent of sales. Governments took a 17 percent share, followed by individual
consumers at 9 percent and 3 percent for the educational sector.

Imports dominate the Indonesian PC market, with HP, Compaq, Acer, IBM, Dell and
Toshiba the leaders. While locally assembled PCs from imported components, such as
Zyrex, Mugen, Wearnes, Access, Indopc, dominated the non-business market, with
about 65 percent market share in 2006, this figure has remained stable in recent years,
reflecting improving quality. The top six brands account for 32 percent of the market, led
by Compaq, Acer, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Zyrex and Mugen. Most of the local PC
brands use imported components such as: Intel based processors (assembled in
Malaysia); Memories/DRAM from Korea, Taiwan, Japan and the U.S.; motherboards,
mice keyboards and peripheral cards mainly from Taiwan and China.

Indonesia. American brands such as HP, EMC and IBM are leading players in the
storage market, followed by HDS (Hitachi) of Japanese. Other US players also strong in
this market include Sun Microsystems and Dell.
