App Store generates nearly double new “millionaires” over Google Play

Unsurprisingly, the application market is growing rapidly and achieving revenue with ever-increasing profits. But in addition to making companies that have app stores even richer, like Apple It's from Google, it also generates new millionaire business.

This was the focus of the new research conducted by Tower sensor, which reported how many new companies and developers raised more than $ 1 million in revenue at the world's two largest app stores this year.

According to the firm's findings, the App Store saw about 164 new publishers generate more than $ 1 million in the US, nearly double Google Play's record of 88 new "millionaires." For iOS app developers, that means a 15% increase over last year when 143 companies raised their first million on the platform.

Despite the higher number of "millionaires" on the App Store, the growth of apps that grossed more than $ 1 million at Google's store was even higher than last year (about 24%). This could mean a more positive than expected increase in Google Play revenue.

Not surprisingly, 54 of 164 new publishers that generated more than $ 1 million in the App Store are included in the "Games" category (about 33%). Outstanding among these numbers was FoxNext Games, the distributor of the MARVEL Fora Strike game, which grossed over $ 15 million this year on the App Store.

Despite the higher revenue from gaming, the number of new apps in this category for iOS has decreased by 10% compared to last year. In this sense, many apps were reallocated to other categories, such as ?Lifestyle? and ?Health and Fitness?, which saw the number of apps increase from 6% to 12%.

Sensor Tower believes that Apple seems ?destined to control its position as the most lucrative platform for developers in 2019? which is not hard to see as App Store spending is expected to exceed $ 122 billion next year.

Number of App Downloads

To get an idea of ??how much the economy around app stores is increasing, the Annie App, one of the world's largest smartphone app statistics firms, released its preliminary numbers on the number of app downloads this year.

The firm's forecast that the number of application downloads in 2018 will exceed 113 billion is a 10% increase over last year. As a result, spending on apps and services also jumped 20%, surpassing $ 76 billion worldwide.

The Annie App reviewed the most popular and most profitable apps in 2018, building a ranking with the performance of these software. Messenger from Facebook was responsible for the largest number of downloads (excluding the ?Games? category). In the middle of the games, Helix Jump was the most downloaded.

In terms of profitability, the Fate / Grand Order game generated the highest revenue of all games, while Netflix was the largest player among the applications, as we have already commented.

The data analyzed corresponds to the number of downloads and purchases on the App Store and Google Play as of December 15th. They do not include Chinese app stores, which would further increase estimates. Also, at Christmas, companies and app developers see peak downloads, so those numbers will rise even higher.
