Videogames Pushing Mobile App Growth

A recent report by Juniper Research has forecast that in 2017, over 160 billion apps will be downloaded globally onto consumer handsets and tablets. This sharp increase, from 80 billion in 2013, is a result of many consumers in developing markets upgrading from featurephones to smartphones, and a growing number of apps downloaded at no upfront cost. The report, Future App Stores: Discovery, Monetisation & Ecosystem Analysis 2013 – 2018, found that the majority of annual downloads will be in the videogames category, with at least 40% of downloads arising from this area.
