The APAC led the mobile apps market in 2018, followed by Americas and EMEA, respectively, according to the Global Mobile Apps Market 2019-2023 report, by Technavio. During the forecast period, the APAC region is expected to maintain its dominance and register the highest incremental growth due to the large customer base of mobile phones in APAC.
The usage of mobile phones in the APAC region is much higher than other geographical areas of the world in terms of growth, percentage consumption, and quantity of users, making it a massive opportunity for mobile app developers. They are developing mobile apps for iOS and Android platforms, ranging from emails, banking, grocery, and food delivery to online maps, gaming, and social networking. These apps leverage Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Cloud, and other robust technologies to deliver better services to the users and enhance their experience.
With people in APAC spending more and more time on their smartphones, immersed in apps, brands have countless opportunities to engage and connect with their customers. Apps are a unique way for brands to build deeper relationships with always-on and more loyal customer bases. However, in the current scenario, merely having a mobile app is not enough, brands also have to ensure that their mobile app has to be evolving and dynamic that caters to the ever-changing market and needs of the customers. The popular and successful apps that shined in 2019 might not have the same potential for the next year. Gartner says that less than 0.01 percent of mobile apps will hit the bull’s eye. So having a strategy for mobile app development alone will not do the trick. The brands need to understand when and why customers look to interact with them to create an app that builds brand loyalty and gives customers what they need. The brands need partners that can help them navigate this dynamic APAC mobile app development landscape. To this end, a distinguished panel comprising CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts, and the CIO Advisor APAC's editorial board has narrowed down the selection to the top mobile application consulting/services companies. With exceptional technological acumen and numerous success stories up their sleeves, many of these companies have consistently proven their expertise in robust mobile app development that meets the need of their customers.
We hope this issue of the CIO Advisor APAC helps brands build the partnership that they need to stay competitive in the market.
