Report Description

Mobile applications are software applications, which are developed for smartphones and tablets to perform various tasks using a programming language. These applications are used to perform specific tasks. Applications are generally small, individual software units with limited function. Mobile games also come under mobile applications. Mobile applications can be classified as native, web, and hybrid applications. Native applications are specifically designed to run on a device’s operating system. Native applications are preloaded in devices and do not require internet connections for access. Web applications, also known as browser applications, are applications in which all or some parts of the software are downloaded from the web. Hybrid applications are the applications which have both native and web application features.

TechNavio’s analysts forecast the Mobile Application market in Western Europe will grow at a CAGR of 29.94 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Press Release

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Mobile Application Market in Western Europe 2014-2018

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in Mobile Application Market in Western Europe: Apple Inc., BlackBerry Ltd, Google Inc., Microsoft Corp., Amazon.com Inc., Dell Inc, Nokia Corp., and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “Newly developed mobile applications are expensive because of their R&D expenditure. As a result of the increase in end-user demand for advanced applications, the price of existing applications is reduced. This strategy is used to attract price-sensitive customers who are late adopters of the product. Also, free applications generate more demand than paid applications. Hence, the reduction in application prices is expected to increase the demand for applications in the future. This factor coupled with the increase in the provision of free applications is one of the key trends that is expected to contribute to the growth of the Mobile Application market in Western Europe.”

According to the report, one of the main drivers is the low entry barriers. OS providers supply application developers with development kits, reducing the initial investment needed to develop an application. In addition, the online tools and tutorials provided help developers create their own applications.

Further, the report states that one main challenge in the market is the inability of mobile applications to support multiple OS platforms. The applications developed can be used only for a specific OS.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.

DCS Market in the Americas 2014-2018

A DCS is an automated control system that, rather than being centralized, is distributed across the entire organization. The DCS is distributed in such a way that each component or sub-system of a manufacturing plant is controlled by one or more controllers, thereby providing instructions to different parts of the plant. Thus, instead of having a centrally located control system, each section of the plant has its own control operations. DCS solutions enable the effective and efficient control and management of the entire plant. Furthermore, they reduce downtime errors and increase productivity of the plant. The DCS solutions are adopted by various industries such as Power, Pharmaceuticals, Oil and Gas, Pulp and Paper, Food and Beverage, Chemical, Automotive, and Packaging. TechNavio's a......

Global Intelligent Print Management (IPM) Market 2014-2018

Intelligent print management (IPM) is a concept related to managing network-shared printers. The basic assumption of intelligent print management is that of a set of printers serving tens or hundreds of users. Enterprises often spend a lot of money on wasteful printing. IPM helps enterprises reduce their printing budget. The IPM process includes assigning specific jobs to specific printers, which help organizations manage their printing jobs more efficiently as well as to ensure on-time delivery. IPM also captures data such as end-user printing behavior and provides notifications about usage, which in turn help organizations create a balanced printing environment. IPM manages and monitor all print devices including digital and offset from a single interface, to better leverage the organiza......

Mobile Wallet Market in India 2014-2018

Mobile wallets are electronic accounts, which can be maintained on cellphones. They help account holders make bill payments or online purchases. They are a revolutionary trend in the Digital Payments industry and are based on NFC technology. The increased adoption of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile technology has changed the way customers make payments. Before the advent of smartphones, Java-enabled and internet-based phones were sparingly used because the usage was limited to SMS and calling options. At that time, carrier charges were high, and therefore customers used these services less. Recently, the growth of the Global Mobile Wallet market has been stimulated by the highly competitive Telecom market and the growing adoption of smartphones and value-added services. TechNavio......
