BOSTON -- November 06, 2012

As Windows 8 launches, the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini continue to see long
ordering delays, Android exceeds 1M activations a day and RIM prepares
BlackBerry 10 for early 2013, the app market is poised for continued growth.

The Strategy Analytics App Ecosystem Opportunities (AEO) forecast - Mobile
Apps Revenue Forecast: 2008 – 2017 – predicts by 2017 the mobile app
smartphone market will generate more than $35B growing from less than $1B in
2009. The app market will be driven by more targeted advertising, growing
consumer interest in virtual goods and the adoption of subscription business
models.

So popular are alternative business models that while paid downloads accounted
for nearly 70 percent of revenue in 2009 the business model will account for
less than 36 percent of total revenue in 2017. Advertising will grow to
generate the most revenue by 2013 as companies invest more in in-app
advertising, improved targeting helps maintain CPMs, and more developers rely
on advertising to drive revenue.

According to Josh Martin, Director of Apps Research, “The battle for
developers is on and supporting recurring revenue streams is essential to
gaining developer support. It is for this reason that Microsoft and Research
in Motion are ensuring their new platforms support in-app purchase and
subscription in addition to paid downloads and advertising at launch. They
continue to battle for third place as the forecast shows Apple’s and Google’s
app stores dominating revenue generation for developers throughout the
forecast period."
