Key Findings from the Study
The study examines how the mobile app economy is thriving globally. It also delivers insights on trends in gaming, e-commerce, and short-form video. Additionally, it includes an analysis of the pandemic’s impact on food delivery app adoption.
The report is full of findings important to all those in the mobile marketing world.
App Economies Are Growing; What Influences that Differs by Region
If you’re seeking to scale to a new geo, then this information is critical. What fuels growth is different across the globe. Mobile gaming is key in APAC, while Turkey’s explosion of downloads is non-gaming. Rather, the fastest-growing verticals are health and fitness, business, and education.
Gaming Remains Largest User Acquisition-Driven Category
Gaming app downloads represent 25% of total iOS installs and 21% for Android. This category continues to rake in the revenue and accounts for 50% of total industry ad spend. APAC has the highest portion with 64%. In North America, it’s 57%, followed by EMEA at 27%.
Southeast Asia Is Leader in M-Commerce Growth
The study reports that Southeast Asia is outpacing China and India in digital retail share. M-commerce acquired over 70 million online users during the pandemic in the region. The first half of 2021 shows no slowing, up 18% thus far.
Food Delivery Apps Still Thriving
Adoption of food delivery apps isn’t changing in 2021, after the influx of users in 2020. Consumers appreciate the convenience, with expectations of earning $28 billion in the U.S. this year.
However, the market is diversifying with more apps entering the market to get their share of this booming vertical.
Social Media’s New Growth Marker Is Short-Form Video
The final finding of the report reveals that short-form video is the new driving force for social media. TikTok, Instagram Reels, and others are feeding consumer desire here. TikTok is the leader, capturing 52 minutes of a user’s watch time daily. The platform’s recent integration with Shopify should translate to even more engagement and revenue.
