The €63 billion app boom


The EU's app
sector has gone from zero to digital superhero in less than five years. By 2018
it could employ 4.8 million people and contribute €63 billion to the EU
economy, figures released today reveal. The app economy employs 1 million
developers, and 800,000 people in marketing and support posts.

This could rise
to 2.7 million developers and 2.1 million support staff by 2018.  Vice President of the Commission, Neelie
Kroes, welcomed this news at the conference to present the figures "In the
face of increasing youth unemployment, these figures give me new hope. My
message to young Europeans is: go grab yourself one of these millions of new
jobs in the app economy. These are really exciting opportunities if you are
ready for them. Let's show the world we can be leaders in the digital economy
again!"
