On May 31, Mary Meeker, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers partner, delivered an annual rapid-fire Internet Styles evaluation at the Code Meeting in California. According to recode, one of the highlights of evaluation was the decline in international smart phone development. Know-how news web page factors out that the smart phone shipments have grown only “3% season over season last year”, compared to the 10% development witnessed before the season before. This likely stems from saturation in designed markets and the fact that emerging markets have yet to demonstrate important development.
eMarketer, however, predicts that despite this slump in smart phone development, “the number of cell phone clients will climb to 4.78 billion dollars in 2020”. At 78.7% of smart phone clients in 2016, North America leads the entire globe in the smart phone development movement, with Western Europe closely trailing behind at 71.7%. The former is poised to grow up to 87.1% and the latter to 82.7%, by 2020. eMarketer also predicts that other regions- comprising of Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific- will also grow their development prices, although at a much lower pace (low to mid teens) than their North American and European counterparts.

Further, the App Annie evaluation, cited by Golmack, reveals that in 2015 alone, the mobile app market generated $41.1 billion dollars in gross income income. This figure may improve up to $50.9 billion dollars, and by 2020, it will be worth $189 billion dollars. Golmack further says that with “only 46% of the world’s population […owning] mobile phones by the end of 2016, […] the much-discussed mobile revolution is just starting.”
