  1. Number of mobile subscriptions surpasses the world’s population

The report shows that the downloading gap between Android apps and iOS apps is widening at an unprecedented pace. However, an important point to note here is that Android apps are still way behind iOS apps when it comes to monetization. The key is to do custom mobile app development for both Android users and iOS users since the duo reign the app market combined.

 

Emerging market like India, Brazil, Indonesia, Turkey and Mexico are making a significant contribution in the growth of Android app market.

 

4. Google Play will become the leader in app market by 2020

 

The App Annie report also shows that Google Play store will have 166.4bn app downloads by 2020. Such an abundance of app downloads will take Google Play store to the number one position in the app market.

 

5. Apple iOS will make the highest app revenue in 2020

Although Google Play Store is estimated to continue record the highest number of app downloads in future, Apple iOS is expected to remain at the top in terms of app revenue. Apple iOS app revenue was 75% higher than that of Google Play store in 2015 despite the latter having twice the number of app downloads than the former’s in the same year.  

 

Apple iOS app revenue will touch the $45bn dollar mark in 2020, almost 200% up from 2015.

 

6. One billion people will use mobile commerce to shop in 2018
