Sizing the EU app economy
Eurapp : final report - Study
Apps running on mobile and social platforms have transformed the global gaming market and disrupted the order of the technology industry. The emerging platforms and business models like app stores and freemium pricing are rippling through — if not ripping apart — enterprise tech sectors. A few Nordic companies are showing tremendous success from beyond Silicon Valley. But will the emerging app economy reboot a struggling Europe, jump-starting job growth and infusing European Union countries with startup energy? This report focuses on sizing and qualifying the EU app ecosystem, with an eye... toward revenue generation, jobs supported, and the bottlenecks still facing EU app developers. The report presents the key findings from our analysis, which is based in part on two surveys of developers targeting EU markets.
