Market Synopsis

Google Play Store to Continue as the Market Leader

Google's Play Store segment holds the highest market share in the mobile applications industry, followed by Apple's App Store. In 2018, Google Play Store had more than 39% of the market's revenue, followed by the Apple App Store with more than 37%. As there are more Android smartphones than those with any other operating system, the Google Play Store remains the preferred destination for app downloads.

Further, the Google Play Store provides access to a wide range of tools and libraries that can be used to develop applications. Due to various benefits such as lower app costs, high app compatibility, and a greater number of apps than in the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store segment is growing at a faster rate.

Asia Pacific to Emerge as the Market Leader in the Forecast Period
