Along with Thailand, the three are strongest performing markets across Southeast Asia in Q3, turning in overall positive showings in the range of 9-14 per cent, added the market research firm.

Indonesia has taken over Malaysia's top position in Q2 as the country with the highest TCG market growth with its 14 per cent growth achieved in the latest quarter. Nevertheless, Malaysia still managed to attain a robust double digit expansion of 10 per cent, trailed by Thailand that saw its TCG sector grow by nine per cent YoY.
