The mobile application market is predicted to grow by more than 270 percent by 2020! That means revenues are going to jump from $70 billion in 2015 to about $189 billion in 2020.

As far as trends go, it is fair to assume that the mobile app market is going to be as huge as the internet in 2020, because by that time games will be accounting for 55% of app store revenues.

Other app categories will also continue to grow quickly, along with transportation and shopping apps, which are going to dominate online shopping. It is also expected that by 2020, in-app advertising will play a major role, and the app store revenue will also increase very quickly. Almost all categories in app will have strong growth, and revenue generated from apps will increase from 58% to 62%. There are lots of different factors that will lead to this growth in revenue, but the two main factors are the increase in time spent on apps, and the doubling of smartphone and tablets sales by the year 2020.

Game publishers will also have a major role to play in the growth of the mobile app market, because they will be pushing to get the majority of the revenue. Advertising will also lead to an increase in app publishers, and it is expected that their revenue will increase from 34% ($24 billion) in 2015 to 45% ($85 billion) in 2020, which is a significant jump!

IT solutions and analysis of the mobile application development platform market

This will lead to a demand of better in-built features for security for iPhone and Android applications.
