Strategy Analytics: More than 350 Billion Smartphone and Tablet App Downloads between 2008 and 2017
BOSTON - (BUSINESS WIRE) - The launch of the iPad Mini and the continued dominance of the iPad
allow Apple to be the premier destination for tablet downloads for the
next five years.
The Strategy Analytics App Ecosystem Opportunities (AEO) forecast - Mobile
Apps Download Forecast: 2008 - 2017 - predicts that between 2008
and 2017 paid downloads will generate more than $57B globally. However,
paid apps begin to decline as free apps come to represent more than 91
percent of all downloads by 2017.
As the percentage of free app downloads continues to grow, the average
selling price of all downloaded apps (free and paid) will drop to just 8
cents for smartphone apps by 2017. The decline in revenue and increase
in app store maintenance costs - including app approval personnel,
marketing, and other maintenance costs - may force app stores to
consider new revenue streams or higher revenue splits.
