Trinity Digital Marketing has constructed the infographic The Rise of the Mobile which provides a snapshot of statistics behind this growth. They found that 87% of the world’s population own a mobile device. This growth is spearheaded by China and India who account for over 30% of this growth.
The graph informs us that there are 1.2 billion mobile web users worldwide and over 300,000 apps have been developed over the past three years.
There is a significant shift going on this year, much more significant than we saw last year, from web to mobile. It is most noticeable in games, social networking, music, and news, but it is happening across the board and it presents both great opportunity and great challenges.
