App Download Statistics

The app market for both web-based and mobile applications seems to be on a constant rise especially in terms of total consumer spending and web/mobile app downloads. The latest proof for this phenomenon is the recent data shared by the well-known website App Annie which heavily focuses on these two terms.

According to the information received by the state of the mobile report, it has been predicted that the total number of global app downloads by the end of 2018 will cross the threshold of 113 billion mobile app downloads that also means a surge of more than 10 percent is expected to be seen in comparison to last year i.e. 2017. Also, you can keep yourself updated with the trending updates of the mobile app industry from the News Section of MobileAppDaily. 

In addition to this, it has also been reported by the company that consumer spending in apps stores like Google Play Store and Apple App Store has grown at a rapid pace. To be specific the rate of growth has been quicker, for instance, it’s up 20 percent every year and is on its way to surpassing $76 billion globally.

This app intelligence firm predicted this information by analyzing collected user data and other information across both Apple’s iOS App Store and Google Play Store, up to the 15th of December 2018. But this report doesn’t include third-party Chinese app stores or any data related to them because it would make the figures even higher.
