Indonesia’s Most Talked-About Brands: November 2022

Aqua has registered the biggest boost in Word of Mouth (WOM) Exposure in Indonesia for the month of November 2022 of all the brands we track in the market. Data from YouGov BrandIndex, which tracks consumer perceptions toward brands on a daily basis worldwide, shows that the proportion of people who are talking about the bottled water brand saw an uplift of 6.4 percentage points during the four-week period.

Representatives from Aqua’s parent company, Danone, recently took part in the 2022 Indonesia Net Zero Summit in Bali where they discussed their commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This included promoting the use of reusable bottles, which produce 83 percent less emissions than single-use bottles, such as in its Aqua Life product.

According to data from YouGov BrandIndex, Aqua’s WOM Exposure score rose from a low of 38.6% on 1 November to a high of 45.1% by 25 November. WOM exposure is a BrandIndex metric that measures the percentage of people who have spoken with their family or friends about a particular brand in the previous two weeks.

Additionally, ride-hailing platform GrabBike recorded a six-point increase in WOM Exposure from 29.7% on 4 November to 35.7% by 26 November, while stomach inflammation medicine brand Promag saw its WOM Exposure climb 5.2 percentage points from 17.1% on 10 November to 22.3% by 19 November.
