Infographic: Unlocking Emerging Markets Is Key to App Store Success

If there’s one thing we’ve learned monitoring the app stores, it’s that today’s small players can be tomorrow’s heavyweight contenders. We saw China break into the top 3 by iOS revenue in our Q3 2014 Market Index, and many more developing countries leap in downloads. In the app industry, juggernauts can’t hold on to their top ranks forever, and markets battle it out just as much as the apps on the app stores.

When GMIC Silicon Valley asked us how we think the industry will mobilize the next 5 billion, we couldn’t help but dig into the data to find out. Check out the countries leading tomorrow’s mobile growth in our latest infographic below.
