This week, AppLift released an inforgraphic illustrating the state of the global mobile market and what it’s projected to look like in the near future.
One of the key takeaways is that the global games market will double by 2016. Given that games currently represent 36 percent of all app downloads but account for 71 percent of total revenue on iOS and 89 percent on Google Play, revenue numbers are also projected to see significant growth.
You can take a closer look at the infographic and read some of the other findings at VentureBeat.
