China became the biggest iOS-app market in the world
15 April, 2015
News

According to a new App Annie research, China has become the top market for iOS app downloads. The document covers the first quarter of 2015. The country pushed USA out of the first spot in the download charts.

The data provided by App Annie points at the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as the main reason of why China managed to outrun US. As a result, the country boasts a global leadership in App Store downloads. Things will most likely stay the same, as the revenue charts will not change drastically over a couple of quarters. Android may still be the most popular mobile platform of China, but judging from where the things are going with Apple, this will change.

Q1 of 2015 has shown a significant growth in both mobile and game markets of China. In December of 2014 a report by China Audio-Video and Digital Publishing Association showed that national game revenues went up to $18.5 billion in last year, almost 40% over 2014. Monetization still remains a large problem. In 2014 only 8% of Chinese mobile games made any kind of revenue. App Annie rating shows that with the country falling behind USA and Japan.
