Market researchers from Digi-Capital expect a continuing boom in the mobile games business. In the “Mobile Apps Investment Review Q1 2014” an annual sales boost of over 70 billion dollars is predicted. Analysts expect annual sales of nearly $ 29 billion for the year 2014. Most important category currently and in the future are games. However, the dominant role of games will get smaller. The share of revenue from non-gaming applications is expected to grow by 26 percent in 2011 to 51 percent in 2017, according to Digi-Capital. Games are then, however, though the highest turnover App category, but would not account for more than half of the market.
