Analysts from the research agency Asymco conducted an annual calculation of Apple's revenues and concluded that the App Store in 2018 will be able to earn more than the world collects a movie theater.
In 2018, the App Store has already set another record - on the first day of the new year, users made purchases for 300 million dollars, and in total, together with Christmas, spent 890 million on applications.
The corporation had a similar achievement in 2015, when the resource earned more than Hollywood. In 2017, app developers alone for the App Store made $26.5 billion. While the sale of the applications themselves brought the corporation 57 billion, after deducting all payments to other persons for the same period. Overall, payments to app developers grow by 33% each year.
Making a prediction, we can assume that this year, on average, users will spend on $100 million daily. Asymco suggests that if this dynamic continues, then By 2019, the entire iOS economy could reach $500 billion.
