The massive infrastructure development in Java has been the key hub attracting all investments and business come to Java, and make it as central of the emerging market. At the same time, this creates economy discrepancy among Java and non-Java, which also impacts to local emerging market growth. Most time this condition reflects higher demands of certain products from non-Java people and the demands cannot fulfilled because of a very limited market and resources in outer Java.
In the other hand, surprisingly as released report from CSLA (2015), there are 66% non Java online shoppers expend more US$20 than Java shoppers. This condition may be a reflection of lack stores in outer Java in terms of slow development in infrastructure which creating retailer’s mindset of low market low demands, and huge investment. In the other side, there are raising demands of local people in several products that not fulfilled by local market which is very limited. So when online business becomes hype, every local people see it as a wide door to get whatever they want and they love to online shop more than Java people.
